Winds were gusting to 102 MPH and the wind chill was -40°F, but that didn't stop two Mt. Washington Observatory staff members from heading out on the observation deck this week to see what it was like.
Ah, yes, the summer life. It seemed like one minute I was sitting on the deck, pretending to take a chemical reading from a drink with a pool test strip. The next minute, I was downstairs in my office waiting for dinner when I heard a loud crashing sound. At first, I thought it was thunder...and then I heard the call from Marie-Anne: "Jon, come up here, quick!"
Yesterday David, Pam, Ray and Diane Turgeon came over to my house. They're my in laws and their visit, while always welcome, was for a purpose. They were there to take down some trees that trouble me every year by dropping endless amounts of leaves and acorns into the pool. Not this year!
The forecast for today is heavy rain and wind with gusts up to close to 50 mph. Of course with the wind there is the possibility of power outages. Whenever there is a threat of a power outage I go on a cleaning rampage of sorts. Is it just me? Or do you do the same thing?
