coming from a part of the world where snow is a non-issue in construction, can someone tell me to what extent does snow affect work on a site like this? will work slow down a lot, and can workers still weld and make secure connections in such cold conditions? just wondering to what extent i really want spring to arrive!

I don't know about the regulations in the U.S.A., but in the Netherlands we have "vorstverlet" (frost delay) when the windchill temperature is -6 C or more. This means that a lot of construction works will halt or that employers have to provide extra measures to keep the workers warm enough. You sometimes observe that construction works halt on the outside, but continue on the inside or that they provide extra clothes or that they try to package the construction site windproof or that they place heaters on the outside.

The all these image angles come from the same camera that moves to pre-programmed views to snap each image. I would guess the snow storm or cold may be messing with the regular pan and tilt movements of the camera. The images are not showing up correctly on the mobile app either. Give it a day or so and the program will probably be restored.

Either that or the Earthcam people are on to us...

They heard how badly we wanted to see the oculus so they changed ALL the presets to show it!!

There's only one camera for all the views. It just changes positions to take the pictures.
