Wishing for Snow

Giving Mother Nature a Jolly Hint for Snow
Today has been anything but winter weather. I woke to snow but the warming temperatures quickly changed it to freezing rain, then rain. With the snow on the ground dwindling by the time I took over observations for the day, I had my doubts if we would have a white Christmas here on the summit in two weeks. Knowing that this is the summit of Mount Washington and anything can happen, I tried my best to encourage Mother Nature with a little holiday spirit. I turned to my trusty Santa hat and performed observations as jolly as I could. Hopefully the fact that the temperatures are dropping again is a sign that it worked. For now I will just have to keep my fingers crossed and wish for snow!
