12-01 am, before midnight I’d noted a few more sparks on cam1.  At the end of last month’s thread I mentioned another double spark that I’d found.  Well, I was wondering what might be bringing the sparks out when I noticed it was raining.  Could be the rain was bringing more fallout to the ground.  The rain got worse after midnight and I started seeing sparks blink on cam4 and caught two of them.  The rain and fallout then put on a web show.  You can see the webs starting up on the 2nd cam4 spark grab.  Might have been more sparks in there but I didn’t go looking.  The rain stopped and the view cleared.  I didn’t see much crane activity in the morning, but I only watched a bit.  Don’t see any new additions, must be slowing down for the weekend.

Good news for old cam watchers, Nuckelchen dropped in to say hi. Don’t let the disguise fool you, he’s still got the same ol’ accent.  Good to see he’s still hanging out; check out his new website.

12-06 So few are watching the webcams these days and not many are looking at this forum.  I thought the "three stooges" worker video up above would at least get a comment.  Nothing exciting to show you all then.  Saw workers in the foreground of cam4, looks like they're assembling a big crane, and another tank passed by.

12-11 They put that thing back on the roof edge of r2.  Is it for roof repairs or maybe hauling debris off the roof?

12-12 pm, I was scanning the recording to see if there was another tank transit and I found one going by at the usual time, about quarter after eight most work nights.  About 35 minutes later the lights returned with no tank.  That's quite a few tanks rolling thru the past few weeks and I might have missed some of them.  I noticed that most of the tanks are sporting a makeshift cover that probably conceals identifying markings.  This evening I found a couple of cam4 sparks, a sign of radiation at the south end of Daiichi.  The north end, Cam1's location, still gets lots more sparks than the south end.

All the best to you Horse and all. May 2018 keep you as healthy and vigilant as possible. And as happy as can be. Lots of love to you all webcam watchers.
