Tip Top House with Our New Snow

It has certainly been quite a busy week up here on the summit. We started out with pretty mild temperatures in the middle of the week, but it’s obvious now that winter hasn’t gone away for good just yet!

I’m a new summer intern up here on Mount Washington and although it’s only my fifth day on the summit, I’ve already learned so much about how the Observatory operates on a daily basis. There is always something going on! Whether it’s a tour, a live webcam session with visitors at the Weather Discovery Center in the valley, or preparing a weather outlook for the radio stations, there are many tasks that must be completed throughout the day; and I’m having a blast lending a helping hand and learning from the pros!

It also didn’t take me long to realize that I’m not in Oklahoma anymore! Upon returning home, I quickly ditched my shorts and tees for a neck gaiter, gloves, and heavy outerwear and boy did it come in handy. It’s amazing how quickly the summit conditions change and I’m thrilled to be spending the summer up here learning about mountain meteorology with my new best friend, Marty. BOOMER!
