A Super Weekend Ahead

It was an absolutely gorgeous day today on the summit; the best weather I’ve seen yet! (Ok I’ll admit it, I think those 120 mph wind gusts that I was lucky enough to experience take the prize!)

The summit has been bustling with activity recently. With tours, media visits, and the ‘Minis on Top’ event this weekend, it’s obvious that with beautiful days like today, we will see more and more visitors throughout the next few months.

As far as my internship goes, I am loving every minute. I have the opportunity to work with some very talented people and I am constantly learning something new which never makes for a dull day. It is a unique experience to live and work in the same place but it is an adjustment that I have quickly embraced.

I am particularly excited for this weekend, not just for the surplus of Mini Coopers that will ride up to the summit, but also because Saturday evening into early Sunday morning, we may be able to witness a ‘Supermoon’ – weather permitting, of course! The moon will appear to be slightly larger in the sky as it reaches its closest point to Earth during its monthly orbit, which is also known as the lunar perigee. This lunar perigee just so happens to coincide with a full moon, which is why this event has been termed ‘Supermoon’. Although still a couple days away, Saturday evening is currently looking to be increasingly cloudy with a chance of showers possible. I have my fingers crossed!
