    [EDIT] Comments now set to show most recent, first.

    Tim, since this comment appears at the bottom of a long list of comments about the Central Square Cam, may I suggest posting this to the LynnHappens fb page? May get more views, there. I’ll be on the lookout, as well. Good luck!

    Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately, if I reverse comment order on this page, it changes the settings for comments everywhere on the site.

    This is the 4th comment system I’ve tried on LynnHappens. It’s the best so far, but still far from perfect. I don’t like the idea of deleting comments, but if I can’t find a more flexible commenting system that also rejects spam comments, you may be right and I may have to at least delete comments for this page.

    You should delete the comments that are from 2015 and before. Or at least put the most recent at the top of the page. It just doesn’t make sense to have all these old comments here. Thank you

    Slight issue. Camera won’t work when I have another USB device plugged in. It didn’t used to behave this way. Will return to live broadcast shortly.

    I spoke with one city councilor and I can tell you that tickets have been issued. Since those receiving tickets probably don’t want to tell the world, we’re not really hearing about it. I can tell you it’s happening, though. If you think a property owner should be cited, please let Inspectional Services and your ward councilor know.

    I have some pictures of Summer Street and the snow banks are at least 10 feet from the curb and that was Saturday afternoon…..I can’t imagine what it looks like now….. The city needs to do a better job in cleaning these streets!!!! Are they also issuing tickets to those who haven’t shoveled yet?????

    I just put it back on – but I may have to take it down later to reclaim some computing power for processing other video. I always have it on for major weather events. For a while I had it on for weeks at a time, but it seemed few were clicking to watch.

    Thanks for doing a great job with keeping this cam going.
    It really is very useful to watch and fun too! As I am not out in that weather 🙂 Lynn Square looks pretty good also with the lamposts and clock !!!

    I have friends overseas that also can see and watch my weather in “real” time:-)

    Thanks again,
    Keep safe…. Peace out….

    My apologies. I had not realized the camera dropped its connection. The service doesn’t issue an alert when this happens. It’s live, now.

    why go off air during a storm? *shrug*

    Going to clean the snow off the central sq cam!

    I hope the people I keep seeing on the platform are using it for a short cut and not expecting a train.

    At 2:05 somebody was going up the street in a wheelchair. A white SUV type vehicle stopped and picked them up. A good samaritan?

    Thanks for the snow cam! I can keep my shades drawn to keep the cold out and just keep this window open to watch the storm. 🙂

    Lots of people getting off those trains, getting home early. There just may be a few spaces on the North side, now.

    Good advice!

    If you intend to park at the Central Square parking garage, at 11:30 Lynn residents were jammed into the North Side when the South Side of the garage was wide open. It happens every year, folks, Stop killing yourself, cross over to the South Side and you won’t have to wedge yourself into a space that you should be attempting to fit in. Stay warm… blessings…
