It certainly feels like winter in New England recently. After a pretty warm start to January- a top 10 warmest-ever January in fact-we are back in the bitter cold, with (finally) some snow in the forecast. Now, we all live here in New England because we think of winter as a great adventure, right? Well, if you really want a winter adventure, then venture up 6288 feet to the top of Mt. Washington where you will find the "worst weather on Earth." Check out the video posted this week from the great folks up at the Mt Washington Observatory.
Mt Washinton, New Hampshire. 6,288 feet high. One a clear day you can see as far as 130 miles to Maine, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Quebec, and the Atlantic Ocean. The Auto Road up to the top is a scary, but wicked fun and beautiful trip. Of course, if it's a mountain, then people have to see how quickly they can walk, run, bike, and drive up to the summit. Here are the records for getting to the top according to the fine folks at the Mt Washington Auto Road
Happy June! It might be in the '70s and '80s for you in the next few days, but it's still, believe it or not, snowing on the top of Mt. Washington. The top of Mt Washington (6288 feet high) is famously known as "Home of the World's Worst Weather."
Let's face it. Cabin fever has set in for most of us, but there's really no where to go. How about a drive? I feel like the Sunday drive, which we used to do a lot when i was a little kid, is coming back in a big way.
We certainly had some wicked thunderstorms move through in the past 24 hours. Many lost power! It always looks pretty cool on top of Mt. Washington, but can you imagine watching a thunderstorm up there? The great folks at the Observatory caught a good strike on Thursday night.
