Lighting the 231 Cake
Numbers were flying all over the summit. The 75th anniversary of the 231 mile per hour wind on 4/12 was an occasion for Observers Brian Clark, Mike Finnegan, and Intern Ali Boris to light up a cake. Volunteers Sarah and Bill Young were cheering for a new record this Easter 4/12/2009, but settled for zero degrees, zero visibility, and a peak 99 mph wind for the day. The egg and candy hunts were moved indoors. An amazing shift to no wind, blue sky, and 120 mile visibility permitted a glorious winter hike to Mount Jefferson. The Presidential range is amazing.
