It’s Great to be Back!

After taking a shift off to visit family and friends for the holidays, I was very excited to return to the rock pile this week. Upon my arrival it was nice to see the summit blanketed in snow and rime ice. It certainly made for beautiful views and after a very warm December with well below average snowfall, the wintry scene was a welcome sight.

This week was my first time riding in the Mount Washington Observatory Snow Cat; an experience I had been looking forward to since my internship began. The experience was like no other! It felt like how I would imagine it would feel to ride in a tank, only with many more windows.

After a warm first half of the shift winter has returned to the summit in full force with the coldest temperatures and wind chills I have experienced during my time here. With cold temperatures, high winds, and snow in the forecast, I am excited to see what the remainder of this shift and winter have in store.
