Another Beautiful Week on the Summit

I’m enjoying my last week here on the summit as my temporary position with the Mount Washington Observatory comes to an end. I’ve seen and learned so much since I started working with the Observatory in fall of 2012. I have walked (crawled) through 120+ mph winds, taken observations in -35 degree temperatures (with a -90 degree wind chill!), collected the precip can in fog so thick I can barely see my feet, and spent months learning about the human psyche while working nights. I couldn’t have asked for a more unforgettable time here on the summit while working alongside a wonderful group of people.

The days ahead promise to bring a variety of conditions, with the summit sending me off with spring-like temperatures on Monday, only to dip back down well below freezing on Tuesday. As they say on the summit, ‘if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it will be different.’
