  • Blizzard 2010 at Apo's House - LIVE

    http://www.ustream.tv/channel/blizzard-20102

    Yeah. It's not that exciting, but this is a live feed from my house of the evolving blizzard. Should make for an interesting couple of days! This will stay online as long as I still have power and Internet access. Neither of which I expect to have for more than another 6 hours.

    I'm going out to my car in 5 minutes, so I'll wave to you all if you're actually watching. Just don't make fun of me when I start shoveling. :)

    Up on Cape Cod we're going to get mostly rain, though it is still snowing at the moment. Good luck.

      You're right on the edge. If the storm didn't move inland as much as it did you would have gotten hammered too! At least it's likely I'll get the day off of work tomorrow.

          LOL! I'll put it back. I figured I would clean off my car so I can watch it accumulate again and see how much snow we're getting without leaving the comfort of my couch and Google TV.

            Snow has been steadily increasing in strength in Hartford since about 10am. Really starting to come down good now. They're expecting 5-7 inches today and 6-12 tonight. Gonna make for an interesting couple days with the parents.

              Hartford? I didn't realize you were so close. That's within getting together for a beer territory!

                  It's starting to get dark so I'm going to switch over to my DV camera shortly so I can kick on the night vision mode.

                    Okay. NV mode sucks and you can't see anything. I'm having fun playing with this Ustream stuff though. I'm playing right now with a makeshift mount for my iPhone for my car. If I can get it working, I'm going to attempt to go mobile and go for a little ride. I'll post the stream URL before I head out. Should be fun. You can all watch me get into a horrific accident.

                        Let me just say that was a HORRIFICALLY bad idea.

                              For about 3 seconds, yes.

                              Nope! But not being able to stop at stop signs was a bit worrying. I never did make it to the gas station. I chickened out maybe a mile away from it. I really had no concept of where the road was. The only thing I really could do is just drive in areas where there were no trees. When I turned around, I think I was on someone's front lawn.

                              I'm quite familiar with driving in snow, but this was just exceptionally bad. My rear defroster couldn't keep up with the falling snow and after about 5 minutes of driving I had no visibility behind me. I also had problems finding my street on the way back.

                              Although I will say I'm happy that my mounting method for my phone worked out great and Ustream had no issues running over 3G. I'm also happy I survived.
