A new feature and a fun forecast

I’ve added a new page on the ol website!

After helping a friend get his map started, I decided to do my own weather camera map in google maps. You can find it here. You can click on each of the markers to bring up that cam’s view, plus some other helpful information. I’ve also included the gmap radar overlay on it, so I’m looking forward to playing with it this next spring when the storms start firing again!

If you didn’t know, we in the SE half of the state of been getting nailed with snow almost every other day. Yeah, it’s only 4-5″ tops at any one time, but it sure does add up! Snow if forecast again tomorrow and then a fast dunk into the deep freeze, as New Year’s Day looks to be down right frigid. Here’s our forecast for the week..
