As we enter the middle of the fall season on the Rockpile, the weather has once again not failed to surprise us. During the eight days that I have been here, we have gone from beautiful, warm, clear days with unlimited visibility, to cold and windy days with fog and no visibility. I have been on various EduTrips and have always been fortunate and amazed by the hospitality and great food afforded to me by the volunteers and staff of Mount Washington Observatory. I am extremely grateful to be able to give back to this great organization and to the wonderful and talented men and women that make up this organization I was also privileged to be part of a great fund raising event last Saturday and to be able to cook and clean for and to support such great people. I encourage anyone who is not a member to join the observatory and to come on an EduTrip or to come help out as a volunteer. I guarantee that you will have one of the greatest experiences of your life while supporting an organization that plays such an important part in our lives by both by weather forecasting and helping to insure the future of the White Mountains (Mount Washington in particular) and mankind’s future in general.
