Our Turn at High Winds

2016-05-22 15:33:38.000 – Mike Carmon, Weather Observer & Education Specialist


With the immense popularity of last week’s video of summit observers enduring high winds on the observation deck, our shift (who was off at the time) got a little jealous of all the fun they had.

We had to wait a little while for the right weather conditions. But sure enough, our patience was rewarded. Once that happened, we set out to make our own video of extreme conditions during our shift week.

Check out the video on our facebook page here. Don’t worry though; the observers captured in this video are professionals and were perfectly safe throughout the filming process!
