Great Weather

Another great sunrise

The wintry blast of wind and ice that graced the summit on Saturday has past – in the end it was just a quick taste of things to come . In fact the weather has done a complete 180 since then with temperatures already in the mid 50s and still heading up and winds struggling to reach 5 mph. Quite a change.

Yesterday was really spectacular up here with both an amazing sunrise and sunset – it’s not often that we get both in the same day. The air was also very dry – with the humidity averaging between 15% to 25% all day. The result was very clear views out to the distant peaks in the Adirondacks and Canada. At night the stars were crystal clear too.

This morning we saw another great sunrise and hopefully there’ll be another sunset tonight. The weather is certainly spoiling us this shift.
