Page History:
December 2009Original version with 4 camera views, designed based on the Mount Rainier Paradise WebCams webpage, with cameras from the Washington Mountain WebCams webpage
Includes the option to show the last 24 hours of NWAC and SNOTEL telemetry data from Mount Saint Helens below the webcams
Includes code to error-check for missing SNOTEL data
January 2010Added the distance of each camera from Mount Saint Helens in the photo captions
Added camera image modification time from webserver for the KATU Vancouver WA Camera
March 2010Fixed broken links to SNOTEL website
May 2010Fixed unwanted line breaks in SNOTEL telemetry dates on narrow screens
November 2010 Fixed a minor bug in the SNOTEL data display, which only occurred between 11pm and midnight and showed the previous day's date for the 0000 hour's data row
March 2011 Fixed a minor quirk in the SNOTEL data display, which only occurred when SNOTEL data is not available at a given site for the previous 24 hours
February 2012Updated the URLs from which to download the SNOTEL data, which had recently been changed slightly
December 2012Added more code to properly handle the new HTTP Status 404 errors from the SNOTEL server, and other unknown SNOTEL errors
March 2013 Forced to write a new external script to grab SNOTEL data, after the long-existing SNOTEL data programs on the NWCC website were suddenly redirected to a beta-version report generator
The new script is a major improvement, it displays wind and solar data for any SNOTEL sites which have those sensors, mostly installed within the last few years
Added the nearby Lone Pine, Spencer Meadow, and Pepper Creek SNOTEL sites, all located to the east of Mount Saint Helens
September 2013Fixed one WSDOT camera link which had changed
December 2013 Expanded to 10 camera views, adding the Toledo Airport cam, Toledo weather cam, and several WSDOT cams along I-5 in a second row
Revised the page layout to use separate tables for each row, to better accommodate the very different widths of images, and reduced image sizes slightly from 480-360-240 to 400-300-200 pixels high
September 2014 Updated the URLs for both VolcanoCams, which are finally back online after very lengthy outages, since May 2014 for the original non-HD cam (which has now been upgraded to HD) and December 2013 for the other HD cam
November 2014 Reduced to 9 camera views, removing the long-defunct KATU Vancouver WA cam
Added the new Pinto Rock SNOTEL site, which was installed in October 2014
December 2015 Expanded to 15 camera views in 3 rows, adding the astonishing distant view of St Helens and Rainier (104 miles!!) and Adams from Mt Scott in Happy Valley, OR (see the view in CalTopo), plus the Green Mountain cam east of Woodland, 3 more WSDOT cams at Toledo Airport, and another WSDOT cam along I-5    
Added the Calamity SNOTEL site to the south of St Helens (the only site in the Washington Cascades which was not already included on any of these webcams pages), revised the location description for several of the SNOTEL sites, and rearranged the telemetry sites into 2 rows
January 2016 Expanded to 16 camera views, adding the KGW-TV Portland Wells Fargo Center movable cam (already on the Mount Hood WebCams page), which sometimes very nicely zooms in on Mount Saint Helens
Improved the location info for the NWAC and many of the SNOTEL telemetry sites, and updated the external script which grabs NWAC data to generate an HTML table which matches the style of the SNOTEL and MesoWest data, so these WebCams pages can now show an arbitrary mix of NWAC, SNOTEL, and MesoWest telemetry sites in any order
Wrote a new external script to grab data from MesoWest (such as the data from the RAWS telemetry sites), which downloads the data as a CSV file and formats it to match the style of the SNOTEL data
Added 3 nearby RAWS hourly telemetry sites in the foothills northwest and south of Mount Saint Helens which have precip, wind, solar, and other sensors (but not snowdepth)
February 2016 Major internal PHP code cleanup, updating and/or deleting legacy code left over from very long ago, from the Mount Rainier Paradise WebCams webpage (March 2009) on which all of these "Webcams + Telemetry Pages" are based, and even from the original Washington Mountain WebCams webpage (December 2004) on which the Rainier page was based
March 2016Fixed all Weather Underground camera URLs, which now apparently need "?time()" appended in order to update properly
