Welcome to Petra From Mohammed Al fadoul
9jan18-- /webcam/jordan/maan/amman/petra-the-treasury.html , The 'Treasury' 'live cam' broadcasts nearly everyday. There is no 'grid' electricity at the camera's location and it is powered through solar / batteries. Short daylight days don't charge-up the power source like in the summer.
Well the trolls have managed to stop Petra cam , despite captured scam erm
سنة جديدة سعيدة الجميع!
Just saw other cam down, will it be back after the holiday?
Has the Petra cam ended till after holidays?
2dec17--A Thank You to our host, Petra Development and Tourism Regional Authority, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of the entrance to the archaeological site of Petra, charming.
7:15 here and just watched several tour groups come in. They had an early morning.
Hi Gert, storm Brian is due here tomorrow, it's coming over from the west.The name made me think of HT's dog Bryan.I don't think I'll be venturing very far, probably my usual walk into town if it's okay to do There seems to be a lot of rough weather lately, I guess it's that time of year then again in March when it can come in like a lamb or a lion as the saying goes.You were wanting rain now you're probably getting too much. Enjoy whatever you're doing.
Well our 'usual' weather is back with a vengeance, it's been raining hard for a few days, last night (Wednesday) we had our first windstorm of the season with some areas getting gusts of 44 mph. A lot of people lost power, I'm lucky because I live on grid that includes a hospital so our power very rarely goes out (it flickers though).I have a feeling that the other camera isn't coming back.
Hi Gert, I would contact them but I have a feeling I'd get the usual answer that they're working ASAP to have it back online. I contacted them more than once about webcams, the first one I asked about was the St. George's Square camera in Malta and I received the answer as above then my husband also contacted Skyline a few weeks later and received a similar answer.Perhaps we'll get a surprise shortly - as my mother used to say 'you have to live in hope even though you might die in despair'. Snow falling on Christmas Eve, is always magical even for me and I'm way past childhood! We have misty damp weather where I am, the curtains are shut at 6.15pm now.Take care
Audrey, Snow is the only thing (the last 15 years or so) I have asked for on Christmas day, not snow already on the ground (although that's fine), I want to wake up on Christmas morning and see it snowing hard. That hasn't happened in 20 years or so, It would snow a few days before or a week or so later but not on Christmas day.I'm also wondering if the other camera will be back, I would write them a message but I think they are probably tired of hearing from me. Why don't you send them a message at the 'contact us' link?
Hi Gert, I wonder if the other webcam will be back, I really miss it.I always wish for a gentle snow fall on Christmas Eve for the children then once Boxing Day is over it can go, February can be a bad month for snow. The winters seem to be milder now, Christmas Day is often mild and wet.Take care
We get a lot of snow up in the mountains but not very much where I live and like you it snowed a lot more when I was a kid. Mostly though we might get one good snow and it's usually all gone in a couple of days. We did have some strange weather on Wednesday evening, there was some sleet and a few flashes of lightning.
