Yesterday, Stacey spoke about our adventurous shift change to the summit. This reminds us that the beginning of the winter season is upon us here on the summit and even more preparations must be completed.
This morning, Stacey, Steve, and I took on the task of changing the tire chains for the Observatory’s truck and van. We took off the old worn out chains and reattached new ones. It was labor intensive however; we all know how important good chains are. The weather is changing fast here on Mount Washington and as snow and ice begin to accumulate, chains are necessary. Now we can feel confident in the next coming weeks as we travel to the summit before our winter Snowcat makes its seasonal reveal.
