On this day, 72 years ago, weather observers on Mount Washington recorded the highest wind speed on the surface of the earth, a record that stands to this day. The weather station at the summit is a in a way a tribute to the dedicated work of these early crews, but today, the data gathered here is perhaps more valuable than ever.

How long will this record stand…our crew believes its only a matter of time before the wind rocks the summit again!
