    For those on the east coast bracing for Sandy here is a link to the NY Harbor webcams where you can see the storm coming in live. I hope that everyone stays safe during the storm. Please post pictures and video of the storm if you have any. http://www.nyharborwebcam.com/

    Looks like they're expecting it to be pretty bad. Get your trucks and people inland if you're up in that area and check in with us when everything's back to "normal".

    [MENTION=33253]donyms[/MENTION], As of this writing that link failed to connect to anything. This also begs the question of whether the cam at that link has redundant power and, if so, how much of it? (The power in the northeastern U.S. seems to go out anytime someone sneezes, let alone 85mph winds...)

    well, as of 9:30 a.m. central time the link is working great here. Don't know why it doesn't work for you but the link is fine I just went on it again. [MENTION=50075]SurrealOne[/MENTION] try it again when you get a chance and let me know if you got it or not. I have seen this link used on ABC and other big networks so it should stay up at least until Sandy takes it out. :glasses:

    [MENTION=33253]donyms[/MENTION], it's still dead as a doornail, here. I've tried two different browsers, too, and neither can open that site -- both time out. I also can't hit it from my work connection (on a completely different machine) which, right now, is direct to a locality near Boston, MA. (It times out via that connection as well...)

    S, my girlfriend and I are using firefox. When she tried to pull it up it timed out for her too but all she did was hit the button that says try again and it came right up. There is probably allot of traffic on that web cam now, I am sorry if it doesn't work there. :glasses:

    The link doesn't work for me either. My ISP sends me to a website suggestion after trying for about 20 seconds or so. But then it suggests the exact link that doesn't work.:neutral:

    My Son said it is probably because of link protection so if the link doesn't work just hit F5, refresh or either type the link into your browser address bar.

    Worked fine for me. Looks kinda windy!!!!:gasp: The water is much higher than it was this morning and the waves seem to roll much closer together onto the road.
