A Happy Thanksgiving On The Summit

Mount Washington Observatory is a manned weather station that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We work in two crews for eight days at a time, swapping out every Wednesday (typically). This all means that regardless of holidays, one crew will be up here manning operations and observing the weather. This year’s crew, Kaitlyn, Mike D, Andrew, and myself had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. And while it is hard to be away from family and friends for the holidays, we always make the best of it with our summit equivalent of a family. We all chipped in and contributed a portion of tonight’s meal all the while enjoying each others company. Here are some pictures documenting our Thanksgiving Dinner:
