Happy Halloween Everyone!

2014-10-31 20:01:00.000 – Michael Kyle, Weather Observer/IT Specialist

 

At around 10:50 this morning the Mount Washington Observatory deck camera caught a glimpse of an extraterrestrial and he was wasn’t alone. Shortly after that, the two extraterrestrials ran into weather observer and education specialist Mike Carmon who was outside taking an observation. Mike explained to the two extraterrestrials that he was outside performing an hourly weather observation that collects a variety of weather variables used in a METAR report. These reports are just one of thousands of reports that are made simultaneously across the country. The METAR reports are used to help meteorologists and others see the current conditions, but also all the data collect is used in forecast models which help meteorologist in making their forecasts.

After that Marty the summit cat came out to visit, and show off his Halloween costume. After seeing Marty, Mike informed the two extraterrestrials that the summit will be heading into the fog soon and that they should leave soon because this might be their only chance for the next few days. There is a storm moving in up the East Coast which is possibly going to have winds gusting up to 100mph only a few days away. After hearing that, the two extraterrestrials took a quick picture at the Mount Washington summit sign. They then shook Mike’s hand and thanked him for the hospitality and vanished as mysteriously as they came.
