I live near Yellowstone as well.Long ago I decided that if Old Faithful failed to go off at it's scheduled time, then something is very wrong. I
decided to check out the live Old Faithful webcam and here's what I found,
"01/20/2011 - Efforts to fix the live streaming camera and restore the static webcam at Old Faithful were unsuccessful. An update will be posted when
new information is available.
01/13/2011 - A trip down to Old Faithful is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 19, in order to troubleshoot the live streaming webcam, as well as the
static webcam. The live camera is stuck in one position, and the static webcam has lost network connectivity. It is not yet known whether that camera
will be able to be returned to service this winter.
We are experiencing sporadic equipment failure with the Live Streaming Cam. We get it working, it stays on for a while, and then fails. So please,
keep checking back to see if it is streaming. Meanwhile, the static cam also remains down due to connection issues. Because of the weather, and the
remote location, access to the cameras is limited. It remains our highest priority to get these cameras running consistently, so we'll continue
working our hardest to mitigate these issues."
The cams just happen to be down. Are you kidding me! Jus' sayin'!
