    Default MWO Web Site Camera images

    For over a year I have run a set of processes taking the web camera images off the MWO web site and getting the images posted to my personal Fotki photo web site. Over time these have created confusion for folks wanting to keep track of my photos and activities. Then I saw the new "Conditions" weather summary image on the MWO site and that put me over the top.

    I have now created a new Fotki account for the Mount Washington Observatory with an id of "MWO". Each of the 4 web camera images off the MWO site now flow to this new photo site. And I have included the Conditions image in the process.

    The uploads go to albums in the "Current Images" folder. Each day I move the daytime images to the archives. Once a day I will move the 3:00 PM Conditions image (which covers the prior 24 hour period) to its archive album.

    This will give us insight to the conditions on our favorite mountain.

    Suggestions and feedback are welcome.

    After finishing my normal morning moving of yesterday's images to the archives I checked Fotki's home page and the MWO Fotki account was listed as "the most active" account on Fotki. For sure this is a slow morning being December 31st!

    To get ready for the new Presidentials web camera image I have added an album for it. Once the images start flowing to the MWO site they should also flow to the Fotki photo site.

    Sign up and join the Observatory - then we can get to see the images sooner!

    The new album is in the Current folder in the MWO Fotki link below.

    The new Presidentials camera image would be great to see today. You go to hazecam.net and check out the view of Mt Washington from the east and the summit is in the clouds. Ravines camera images show the same. The images around Maine like at http://www.wgme.com/webcam/webcam3_new.shtml show a wonderful day.

    I am sure the new Presidential camera images today would be so cool - summit in the clouds - late afternoon sun shining off the snow on the western side of Mt Washington. Oh my - I can't wait to see what it is like. We are almost to the 1/2 way point in getting 250 new members.

    The bottom 2 graphs on the Conditions image have stopped recording data - on the image.

    Some of the web cameras are inside heated or semi-heated space at the summit. Is the Ravines camera inside? Or is it heated some way to keep the lens clear?

    Will the new Presidentials camera be inside or is it heated or will it get covered in snow or ice?

    The Ravines cam is "inside", but it is not heated. There is no climate control in the box or even in the building.

    Default Tucks Zoom

    Take a look at the Tuck's zoom. You can see two distinct trails heading up through the snow on the summit cone. It's very clear up there today.
