    Have a great ride up from Jersey, I wish I were going....

    I just have to say that I really enjoy seeing people coming together from different places to try to achieve something. This would be a really cool thing to see, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

If you need a place to store extra image files, let me know and I will create another album for you. Then you can FTP or use the Fotki built in features to upload the files. When you get home you can download them or whatever. It could be a handy place to store them if the SD card gets full.

    Trying to film the rime ice as we speak... The camera is mounted in the parapet, shooting one of the pipe mounts. Have been clearing the lens every 15 minutes or so, we'll see what happens...

    Something tells me you're not getting true rime right now. Southeast winds, strong storm points to glaze. Just a guess.

    Based on the observers' opinions, and my limited experience, it appears to be rime, not glaze. What we're getting right now is the typical white, rough, feathery ice, not your basic clear, smooth glaze ice.

    It looks like you are storing the images in the camera at this point - as I do not see anything flowing to the Fotki site.

    +PL, 99mph winds and glaze ice. Sounds nice up there about now.

    The camera that I used is actually standalone - it is essentially a small (about 1/2" in diameter, by 3 inches), waterproof video camera on a 10' cable, that records to an SD card. I was able to mount the camera through a hole next to the parapet door, and keep the recorder inside, relatively warm, and plugged into power. The camera was in place for about 8 hours. The lens/camera did ice up pretty quickly, as expected, but I deiced it at least once an hour, sometime more. Ryan will probably edit the footage tonight, and we'll see what we end up with.
