KenCam - Central Lake, Michigan
Latitude 45° 3' 55.2" N, Longitude 85° 15' 5.9" W

This is the live web cam shot of my back yard on Intermediate Lake Road in Central Lake.  Besides the birds, you can occasionally see deer, rabbits, skunks, opossums, squirrels, and raccoons feeding on the ground.  In winter I have a snow depth gauge installed.    The picture is updated every three seconds during daylight hours until I turn the camera off around sunset.  You can email me with any questions or comments.

(10/30/14)  This morning is cloudy but dry, with rain possible later in the day.  We may get our first snow showers of the season on Friday, followed by a sunny weekend.

(10/19/14)  Click the image for a description of lake level control from the county drain commissioner.  The comment about the lake level being five inches above normal this spring obviously refers to an earlier year, since the level this past spring was two feet above normal and is 14 inches above normal as of today.

(9/26/14)  This branch is from a tree on the corner of Old State Road and Bell Street that always turns early.  Most trees are still green, but hopefully this is a preview of things to come in a couple of weeks.  For the latest information on leaf changing progress, click the Fall Colors Report button.  Click to enlarge.

(10/12/14)   Although it was a beautiful day and probably the peak of the fall colors, we had our first frost of the season this morning.  Click here to see changes over the seasons.
