After all the excitement of yesterday’s Mount Washington Road Race, the mood on the Rockpile has calmed with the end of the weekend and heavy rain showers nearly here. It’s interesting to note while living on the summit for eight days at a time to see just how drastically energy fluctuates from the quiet early morning start of the day, to the frenzy at midday with the arrivals of hikers, Cog travelers and Auto Road patrons, to the calm and quiet of the sun set (for night observers, the energy and excitement of their shifts is just the opposite).

For most of us here at the Observatory, Sunday is just another work day recording and observing the weather; however, we all sincerely hope that all of the father’s out there had an extraordinary day. On behalf of the all of the staff (human and feline) at the Mount Washington Observatory, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
