The top of Mt. Washington has earned the title “Home of the World’s Worst Weather”. I have been on top of that mountain when it was clear and you could see for miles. Then I have been on top of that mountain where visibility is about 50-feet and the winds are so strong you can barely walk. As the cover picture documents, the highest winds recorded was on top of this mountain. As you can see the buildings are chained down and in the winter the chains are frozen. They have a 24-hour observatory that is manned by a two-person crew for an eight-day shift. The temperatures can go as low as -40 degree F and winds over 100 miles per hour. Because visibility can be so poor the workers need to be careful when they venture outside because they can get disoriented. They have had snow on July 4th when most of us are enjoying warm, picnic temperatures. If you live in that area you can volunteer to help the team! Refer to their website for more information about the observatory if you are interested in weather. This is the website where I got my information for this posting.
