Yesterday was very quiet on the summit as the storms, which wrecked havoc on the southern part of New Hampshire, kept most people away. Today, however, has been a totally different story. The morning started out as normal but we soon broke free of the fog and, as the day progressed, it turned out to be really nice with calm winds, warm temperatures and even some blue sky! The summit was crowed with tourists and we have been very busy giving tours to members. We have also been visited by several people who will be hiking up tomorrow as part of Seek The Peak. This fund raising event is one of the most important days of the year for the observatory and, with some 300 registered hikers taking part, one of the busiest as well.n

nWe are currently preparing for an onslaught of visitors tomorrow. We’ll be giving tours to the hikers as well as snacks. This week’s volunteers, Steve and Kirk, along with Dennis, our teacher extern, are already working in the kitchen preparing cookies. Let’s hope everyone taking part tomorrow has a great time and thank you all for your efforts and support.n
