I have received some really nice messages from several people over the past few days giving me encouragement to do my best to keep the weather station site and its webcams going in these challenging times so that they can see what's going on in this beautiful part of the world.

Indeed, as I write this post, just now there have been around 100 people watching the local RNLI crew return from a shout for the past 10-15 minutes!

However, I expect there will be a few challenges going forward as the pressure increases on our broadband network with the amount of home-based working that is now needed.  I may therefore need to suspend the site operation from time to time to free up broadband capacity so that homeworkers (Including myself) are prioritised appropriately.  I know that would be a shame but it would be the responsible thing to do.

In the meantime, I have already relocated the weather station server back from its previous home in Zurich to my Mac Mini as a first step to improve resilience and I have another Mac that I can use if that fails for any reason. 

I hope the site contributes in some way to helping people through the current crisis and I will do my best to keep things going.

If anyone would like me to vary the sequence of the angles for the main webcam from time to time please let me know and I will do my best to oblige.
