    Sorry to bother everyone, but lately I have been feeling homesick and miss Edmonton. I came across the live traffic cameras as I was Google searching, but I was wondering if anybody knew of any web sites that had live cameras of scenic parts of Edmonton that I could take a gander at whenever I feel homesick.

    PS- I realize that this is an odd request

    You could tell they drove to Sherwood Park because he hit three red lights. Not sure how they got through the other two, but I know for absolute certain the light at Baseline would have been red.

    there are quite a few live cams in Edmonton on this site.
    Sorry just realized you had this site.

    There are some still frame type things from weather cams, but just wow, had no idea there were cams like this all over the world. Would love to have one pointed down Whyte Ave.

    Google maps ---> Street view ---> Virtually walk the streets of almost anywhere in the world.

    Did this a few times for places I've travelled to and miss.

    Thank you to everyone who tried to help out. Google maps is alright, but I was hoping to see some live snow fall around some familiar spots. I guess I'll just have to cry myself to sleep

    Would you settle for a picture of the river valley updated every 15 minutes?
