Soo Locks Web Cam

As you may have noticed, the Soo Locks web cams are not operating. I asked my helpful sister-in-law at the Sault Visitors and Convention Bureau what was going on. This is what she said,

"Now the Soo Locks webcam has had a upgrade and when they do that they have to wait until the government gives them permission and we know how long it takes the government to do anything all I can say is I keep calling Detroit Army Corp and get the same answer."

So that is the scoop there. It may be a while before we can watch shipping. But once I get to the Soo on May 29 I will begin twittering the ships as well as posting on my blogs. Can't wait.

No, my sister-in-law is Linda Hoath. That's my maiden name too.

Anytime we are waiting for the Federal gov't. we are in trouble. I'm sure you could write something very funny about this.

There is also the Port Huron webcam on boatnerd.com. Is a live streaming webcam and pretty cool.
