I imagine that webcams are a fairly low priority after a big icestorm...considering they have to clear exits, fire escapes, exhaust pipes, the towers, and the instruments which all affect operations. Last I checked though, it got done!

Clearing the windows was no ez task, as you have to do it from below with a long pole. Falling ice is a big concern, and from saturday's pictures, they had ALOT of HEAVY ice. Safety comes first on the Rockpile! Always has...

Besides, if you've ever been in the obs in winter...ice covered windows is the view from mtwash to the observers!!!!

The West web camera is "inside" looking out towards the west. I think it is in the tower along with the Deck camera. However, with the wind coming out of the west the window glass in front of this camera tends to freeze up with ice.

The North camera is in the observation room and is really inside. The glass in front of the North and Deck cameras do not seem to ice up as much being out of the wind more.
