Sunshine this time of year is every bit as strong as rays felt in late August, and abundant smiles found in the Mt. Washington Valley prove this point. April smiles, however, are easily erased during this tumultuous time of year. From flooding rains to heavy snow, April plays with solar energy in ways that August wouldn’t dare. Consequently it comes as little surprise to locals that our highest wind blew during this chaotic month.

If, like me, you get excited by April weather, I invite you and your family to join me for a free program at our Weather Discovery Centerin North Conway: Wednesday Night; 7:00 PM. As a tribute to April we’ll talk about our big wind, we’ll discuss lightning and play with a little electricity, too! Now, with a classic April storm forecasted to dump more rains on the valley whilst driving mountain winds toward hurricane force, why would you miss out on this vacation-week opportunity?
