The end of a NICE day!

There are BAD day, there are OK days, and then there are NICE days. Today was one of those NICE days. And I wasn’t the only one that thought it was a nice day up here or in New Hampshire. I heard it from tourists in the Sherman Adams rotunda, on the observation deck, from our guests on the Summit Adventure trip, our intern, our day observer, Gus from State Park and from an overwhelming amount of Facebook status updates from friends and businesses around the state. The summit (and most of New Hampshire) had just that right mix of weather ingredients to make just about everyone happy today. For those that like a bit of fog to start the day, the summit and valleys had a bit. For those that love sunshine, the summit and valleys had a ton of it today. For those that love it warm but not hot, we shared that today. For those that love low humidity’s, we shared that today. For those that love low winds, we shared that today. For those that love sunrise or sunset, we shared one or both of those today. For those that love the rain and/or thunderstorms, Coos County (which includes the summit of Mt Washington) had some of these this evening. And for those that love cool sleeping weather, we’ll share that too by sunrise behind the frontal passage. There was just about something for almost everyone it seemed today just making it a NICE day all around. And I say almost because I am sure there were some elements a few people didn’t like or receive today. But it is New England and in my time here, I have learned that if you don’t like the weather now, just wait 15 minutes. And if you still don’t like it, wait a day, a week, or a month; somewhere in a years span there’s bound to be at least one day that fits your liking. Just be patient, it’ll come.
