Winter has returned to the Summit

I got up this morning to find fresh layer of new snow had been deposited on the Summit. As promised in the morning Forecast a strong Low pressure system moved over us dipping the barograph down to 23.20 before starting to rebound as a high started to build in throughout the day. Temperatures dipped to the low single digits and we experienced our first wind gust of over the century mark for the season at 116.9 miles per hour at 8:20 am.

Earlier this morning Marty was seen wandering through the rotunda of the Sherman Adams building checking things out with one of our volunteers. The rest of the day he was seen sprawled out on one of the couches in the living area – All that exercise must have tired him out.

Sustained winds weren’t high enough for anyone to try for the ‘Century’ club today however Dave did take a lap around the observation deck in 85-90 mile per hours winds and came back saying it was exciting.
