What a difference a day makes…today not being one of those days, but tomorrow will be!

After enduring many days in the fog (with the exception of a few hours of clearing to allow for two beautiful sunsets) most of our time spent on the summit has been wet, cool, and with little in the way of visibility. As a new intern starting just this week, all of this time stuck inside takes some getting used to. Luckily there are many things to keep me busy such as learning to give tours (my first was today) as well as my other responsibilities as an intern on the summit.

Tomorrow should bring an end to the persistent rain showers much of the northeast has been seeing, with the passage of a cold front from Canada finally pushing the low pressure system we’ve been dealing with offshore. With the promise of at least some sun tomorrow, maybe I’ll finally get a chance to do a real hike, after I finish up my work for the day of course. Speaking of which, time to get back to work. Look forward to seeing you on the summit!
