An Incredible Week on the Summit
2012-03-13 17:16:19.000 – Lou Milanesi, Summit Volunteer
This is my second time volunteering on Mount Washington. This has been an incredible week. We have experienced 120 MPH winds and storms as a cold front moved through. Then at the other extreme we had crystal clear days with winds in only the mid-20s, and temperatures above freezing that were perfect for hiking. The views were magnificent.
I truly want to thank the staff for being patient as they entertained my plethora of meteorological questions. It was a pleasure to cook for them and learn from them. If you are a weather enthusiast as I am and you desire to go to “The Factory” where weather is made, you need to become a member of the Observatory and volunteer. You will never experience anything like it. What are you waiting for?
