Snow drifts at the front door…

Finally, some normal wintry weather has arrived on Mount Washington. Snow, sleet, freezing rain, freezing fog, high winds and COLD temperatures. All these conditions and more arrived yesterday, and look like they will hold for through the week now. The staff is on their way out the front door with shovels for the first time in a while, to remove the rather large drifts that have built up. All this from the storm that dropped a bit over 6 inches on the summit.

And the summit needed it, after last week’s warm up we were looking a little bare…see pictures:

These pictures were taken the new Bretton Woods Cam just two days ago.

A view from this new camera will launch on our website at the end of our new membership drive, which at the current pace may be soon. All it takes for this camera to be brought online is your new Observatory membership. And were 15% of our way to our goal in just one week! Your support goes towards operation costs at the summit, research on our climate record, outreach education, and sustaining the content on this website.

Lastly, and in other (now old) news, the CBS Evening News was up on the summit yesterday to film a storm on the warm weather all across and above New England. It will air tonight, we hope you will tune in!

*UPDATE: Here is a link to the CBS story that aired last night!
