Tech Trends: Interesting Webcams

Gail Eddy, Nederland.  If you’re like me, sometimes you just want to look at other places. Not in a voyeuristic kind of way, but just because of a sense of curiosity. Some webcams are co-located with a personal weather tracking system for a household, some webcams are in cities and you can look at the street views, some webcams are at ski resorts and allow you to look at the snow conditions before plunking down a small fortune for a single day lift ticket. ($120 at Vail for Thanksgiving Saturday!)
