Shift change day is always naturally hectic, perhaps even more so this week though. Therefore this comment will be brief…
Ken Rancourt leaves the summit today, after he covered a week of vacation for myself, and he seemingly rewired everything in the tower, and across the summit. Fiber-optic cables now connect all the summit buildings, and this will lead to great projects and sensing around the White Mountains in the future. In all, a very productive week.
While the events of the day were very busy in the transition and transfer of new information, the weather has been quite benign. Temps have warmed up and the winds have died, atleast in comparison to last week. A thin cloud veils the summit, but winds are a mere 20mph right now, very light by summit standards. The forecast for now looks tranquil into the weekend…perhaps we’ll able to calm down as much as the weather has!
