The sweet view of a loon sitting on a nest in Minnesota!
We are back live with the LoonCam at 4:00pm.
The good folks from BroadBand have just left and are now on their long trek back home.  Thanks guys!
They were actually able to fix the server and get everything back up and running.  It is yet one more example of how a multitude of different things must all work perfectly to bring you this picture from the nest.  If one of them somewhere along the way decides it is not going to work, it doesn't make any difference is the other 99% are working.  That one thing will kill the video feed and the picture.
Without getting into a lot of boring detail, this really seems to have been a fluke.
It turned out that the power supply to the server had gone out. 
And even though it went out at a time when we had big storms moving through the area, it may or may not have been related to the storms.  It may have just decided to quit working.
But whatever the reason, the good part is that all of us now have the LoonCam back and can watch these final days leading up to the hatching of our loon chicks.
I do not expect anything to happen before Saturday.
But it could happen as early as Saturday to Monday.  Or at any time next week.
So now is the time to watch closely.
Now it gets exciting!
