Happy Fourth of July!

Showing off our festive temporary tattoos.

Our shift won’t be watching any fireworks today, though as Ryan pointed out, we had a great show last night with the storms that rolled through. Still, nothing was holding us back from celebrating this American holiday. We decorated the Weather Room and used temporary tattoos to make the atmosphere at the Mount Washington Observatory feel more festive.

While most people would consider the weather we are getting poor for Independence Day, I am actually very excited about it. As I write this comment, Hurricane Arthur is off the coast of New Jersey, almost to Cape Cod. It is expected that we are going to experience winds with gusts up to 100+ miles per hour up here on the summit! It would be incredible to experience a force like that. Our strongest gusts are forecasted to occur tomorrow morning, and I will anxiously be awaiting them.

Observer Footnote The Mount Washington Observatory will be hosting the sixth annual Science in the Mountains lecture series this summer! This free, informative lecture series is open to the public. The first presentation will be July 16th! We hope to see you there!
