Still Foggy

2006-06-10 09:14:48.000 – Dan Huber,  Summit Intern

Faithful Observer…

Yet again the word of the day up here on top of Mount Washington is going to be fog. This intern has seen nothing but fog since he arrived. He is beginning to suspect that the fog has been creeping into the brains of the entire crew up here. Yet through thick and thin your faithful summit observers and interns continue to monitor the conditions, hoping for a break in the clouds. We are able to continue our steadfast surveillance through support from people like you!

Riding in the midst of the fog arrives another fairly unpleasant weather phenomenon, forty degree rain and drizzle. In fact, out of the last forty days dating back to May 1st the summit has only recorded six days with no precipitation. It seems our streak of wet weather will have no end. Yet our spirits remain high despite all obstacles as we are living at 6288 feet.

If you wish to observe the state of the crew and learn something about the weather, we have daily videoconferences with visitors at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway. Admission is free thanks to a sponsorship from the Mount Washington Auto Road.
