Nature Webcams

Sometimes it is soothing to watch a webcam instead of the news. Here's one with hummingbirds. A nice respite in midwinter, or anytime, as long as its daylight, Pacific Time.

And here's a webpage on aurora, including a live webcam. Alaska Time is one hour earlier than Pacific Time, and in the dead of winter, the sun sets around 2 PM. Auroras, in my past experience, peaked around 10 PM Alaska Time, which worked out perfectly for those 7-10 PM university classes.

Narya, nice!

Here's one of Monterrey Bay Aquarium webcams. They also have an otter cam, which I will share when I find it.

Mornings wouldn't suck so badly if they came later in the day.
