First week

2010-09-03 18:49:01.000 – Erica Sandschulte,  Summit Intern

It has been with out a doubt a great week! It being my third complete day on the mountain, this morning was the first time I was able to see thirty miles out to the horizon with some clear blue breaks overhead. It was a beautiful morning. As the day went on clouds started to move in and by the afternoon we were completely covered.

This is my first time on the mountain and I get to spend it as an intern for the fall season. I am thrilled to be here and experience the weather on top of Mount Washington! I have already taken part in routine weather observations led by Brian Clark and Mike Finnegan. They have been great, they both are knowledgeable in their weather expertise; I can already tell I will be learning a lot from this team of meteorologists. I can’t wait to see what this year has to offer and learn as much as I can!
