212 to 32…
The Observatory has tied the record low of -26 for Sunday the 26th! From this shifts perspectiveits just plain cold outside, really no other way to describe it.
There is only one way to celebrate record low temperatures in February on Mount WashingtonHot Water Fireworks!!! Basically, take a pot of boiling water outside, throw it in the airand well, you can see the results for yourself! Tim described the process fairly in depth here last week!
I had never seen this before, let me tell youits AMAZING!!!
Two quick program notes:Tonight at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway, Dr. Peter Crane, will offer a program on “Mount Washington, its weather, and the Observatory”, which will give an overview of the mountain’s weather and the history and work of the Observatory. The program is free and open to the public at 7 tonight at the Weather Discovery Center, on Main Street in North Conway village.
Andthe Weather Discovery Center is open daily this week from 10 to 5, celebrating Winter Carnival week with FREE ADMISSION thanks to the support of our friends at Attitash.
