A Birthday Celebration

Happy Friday everyone! We hope everyone had a wonderful first day of August! Can you believe it’s August already!? Today turned out to be extremelyhazy, but the haze sure did provide some nice color this evening as thesunset was briefly visible when we momentarily broke out of the clouds.

Life on the summit is really no different from life in the valley,especially when it comes to birthdays! Today, we celebrated observer MikeDorfman’s birthday in style with party hats, festive leis, and otherbirthday decorations. It also just so happened that our volunteers Tom andJosh made Mike’s favorite meal for dinner by coincidence; how perfect! Wefinished the night off with a delicious birthday cake, thanks again to ourwonderful volunteers. It was a fantastic way to start off the month ofAugust!

Observer footnote: Join us next Wednesday, August 6 as wecontinue our free summer lecture series Science in the Mountains! Nextweek’s presentation will focus on the seasonal variations of temperatureinversions along the Mount Washington Auto Road, and will start at 7PM atthe Weather Discovery Center in North Conway. We’ll see you there!
