My Mt. Washington, NH Journey...

There is something about the howl of the winds that makes people fear. Fear is not an option on the top of the highest mountain summit in the northeast, Mt. Washington.


Last year I took a trip out to 13 states in the western parts of the United States. One of the trips was where I visited Pikes Peak Mountain, which has an elevation of 14,110ft. Gradually rising up the mountain, the Pikes Peak Cog railway pulled along. Upon the peak, the clouds were high above the summit (cirrus clouds), but a distinctive haze was visible limiting visibility to lets say only four states wide view. On clear days the visibility is endless. At the summit the temperature is about 30degrees colder than the base. Pikes Peak was quite an adventure all in itself, and so all in all I had been up a twice as taller mountain that Mount Washington and I expected similar weather, views, etc. But Pikes Peak is no comparison to the ferociousness of Mount Washington. As the saying goes Mountain Weather is unpredictable and that is surely true.

Let me first start off with talking about the beauty of New Hampshire. I had been to southern New Hampshire before near the Atlantic coastline, but never in the northern parts of the state. Mt. Washington is located in the center of White Mountains National Forest. Scenic vistas are visible all across the region as the mountain loom off in each direction on the horizon.

Mountain peaks averaging near 4,000ft or more with little villages in each valley each with its quaint New England charm with a general store, inns, bed & breakfasts, cafes, town halls, churches, and more. It really is quite the scenic region. People busy walking the narrow town sidewalks looking for that afternoon ice cream cone or just that afternoon walk in the park. There are also many state parks in the region with tall waterfalls and creeks with water rippling down the over the rocks. Birds and animals busy looking for food and water in the afternoon and enjoying the calmness of nature. Winding roads between the canyons and gorges of the mountainsides. And then Mount Washington appears on the horizon with a cloud of fog on the summit limiting the full extent of the size of the mountain to the naked eye. A postcard view describes the entire region. And yes this is how my journey up Mt. Washington began.

Ah the cog railway. The engine is sort of reminiscing of "the-little-engine-that-could." It is a really small steam locomotive that they have been using for quite some time.

At moving at a speed of 3mph up the mountain it is not a hop, skip, and jump to the top. In fact it takes a total of 1.5hours to the summit. But the feel of the nostalgic railway gives it its charm. The tracks are quite old and climb at a degree of near 30degrees making one section of the track, known as Jacob's Ladder, the most fearsome and dangerous railway in the entire world. But remember they have been doing this since the mid 19th century, and all employees at the railway ensure everyone that it is completely safe.

Climbing the mountainside I watched out the window of the ever-changing mountainside where it seems you travel from one world to the next starting in the forests of New Hampshire to the Arctic deserts of frozen tundra.

The alpine tree line is the last climate zone located near the summit where it looks like you are on top of the moon with only a few little plants and moss along with large boulder-sized rocks. No animals live at the summit, so there is absolutely no life. Climbing continued on the cog railway as we all just about entered into the thick clouds. But before I took a look up the steep train track and looked at the fearsome looking clouds moving at some of the fastest speeds I have ever seen.

And then we enter the thick fog with visibility measured in yards. As we continue to climb higher the howl of the wind is now heard, and a shiver is felt as a cold wind is felt upon you neck slipping into the window cracks. Finally we are at the top and the breaks of the train come to a screeching halt. The winds were blowing fast, but not overly fast at the station. We had 20minutes to walk around before we headed back down the mountain. I immediately headed to the observation deck and pulled out my handheld anemometer. All of a sudden as I stepped on the deck the wind howled at a sustained wind of nearly 54mph for over a several minute period, gusts reached a whopping 63.9mph on my anemometer. With clouds and fog moving quickly over the summit horizon and winds whipping, it gave an end-of-the-world type feel. But I loved it, as truly my love of weather came right out. As most people went indoors to get warm, keep in mind it was 44.5degrees, I went out braving the elements. Then I heard the train whistle, and I was very reluctant to travel down already. I could have stayed up all day. Boarding the train I was still in awe of the weather I had just faced. Waiting for the next day to go up on the summit was going to be a difficult task. Though you could hardly see your hand in front of your face in the fog, and as most people were disappointed, I was thoroughly thrilled.

As the next day's morning sunrise dotted the landscape I was quickly awakened to check the morning sky. And as I looked up, yes it was blue sky with spotty cirrus and cumulus clouds, and yes a clear summit making the trip a really once in a lifetime experience.

This time it was the auto road that would lead me up the mountain. Upon traveling up you get a packet with a bumper sticker saying "my car climbed mount Washington", a certificate of travel, and a slightly chilling warning packet about driving the road. The road is quite narrow and follows the side of the mountain with large cliffs below. Also the road is quite steep making the travel down the mountain relatively hard on your breaks. But it was all worth it! As we reached the top the visibility was endless as I looked onto the landscape of what seemed the top of the world looking on to thousands of miles of beauty. Interestingly enough the wind was relatively calm if you consider 30mph calm. Typically the mountaintop is covered in thick pea soup fog with winds to 40mph+. But Friday was a rare day. In fact 60% of the time the mountain is shrouded in fog. Anyways at the summit I took some pictures and then headed into the museum and gift shop.

There I found out information about touring the weather observatory. I became a 6-month member of the observatory which includes many benefits from special tours of the weather station to special website attributes to a special weather magazine, "Windswept." After filling out a few forms I trotted down to the entrance of the observatory awaiting my personal tour of the station. There I met a friendly woman who was an official weather observer at the summit headquarters. Now when I went into the tour I expected the weather room to look like a NASA control center full of computers. But what I saw was quite interesting in its self. There were a few monitors with weather maps, so of which I even post in my blog, which I found to be funny.

There was also another area with a weather wall full of many computers and monitors displaying current weather.

There also were a few older weather instruments that measured the typical wind, temperature, pressure, humidity, and etc readings.

I found out that the permanent observers work a Wednesday-to-Wednesday shift and actually do not make any forecasts. But this does not mean they do not have a busy schedule, especially in the winter. Each hour they send in an official weather observation to NOAA which is seen on their website. For example...

But they send it in a code with a whole bunch of numbers put together. On our tour we then went up through the weather tower to see the actual instruments. And yes I was at the top of the top of the weather tower.

The instruments were interesting to look at with some new modern technology, but also some older technology with instrument such as mercury thermometers in a Stevenson screen to block solar radiation. During the winter as temperatures drop in the negatives with wind chills in the negatives 70s the observers have to hourly check the weather and knock off any rim ice that has formed. They even have protective metal A-Frame type structures that the observers walk under to avoid being hit with falling ice as winds gust over 100mph. In fact the highest wind gust ever was 231mph, which was recorded in April of 1934, and remains the worlds recorded for the strongest wind gust ever officially recorded. Weather observations have been ongoing from 1870-Present at the summit. I could talk on and on about my tour, but I do not want to extend this blog any longer than it has to be. Feel free to ask me any questions. Anyways sadly my tour came to an end. But then there was the museum, which explains why Mount Washington is home to "The World's Worst Weather." It deals with the active New England storm track along with other factors such as a natural wind tunnel created by the mountains. At the gift shop I did buy a wonderful book, which already I have read. The book is "Among the Clouds" by Eric Pinder, which details the life of an observer at the top of Mount Washington. Soon my Mount Washington journey was coming to a close and I took one last look onto the scenic views of the New Hampshire landscape from the summit. Traveling down the mountain I took one last look out the window at the large mountain the looms in the distance visible from miles and miles away.

Now back to the reality of now what seems our boring weather in Pennsylvania compared to the weather at Mt. Washington.

With winds gusting over 100mph and snowfall nearly 300inches per year, the vast landscape of the mountain summit is familiar with the Arctic. Mount Washington is home to the “worlds worst weather” is quite a true statement as I experienced some of it first-hand. But this was in summer, and winter is a whole other beast of weather. To any weather fanatic this is a must see. You truly will be amazed. Exposed to the worst of the elements most cannot imagine working on the summit, except for the brave few known as the weather observers. I hope to return to Mt. Washington someday in the near future and to the beauty of the New Hampshire landscape. I can only imagine what winds over 100mph feels combined with dense fog and negative temperatures. But this is just a typical winter day at the summit. During my experience I was visited by 60mph winds, dense fog, 40degree temperature, and patchy snow cover all in my short 2-day visit. The journey home was a sad one as I reflected on my once in a lifetime trip that many weather enthusiasts worldwide would love to travel to. Truly only one word describes the experience… breathtaking.

hurigo- Lol, that is funny. For some reason hotels never tune into their "own" local on the 8s.

TheRasberryPatch- No this summer has not been too terribly hot nor terribly dry.

Thanks Blizz, I'll count on getting your good advice. Probably nothing to worry about, but something about the setup looks familiar.

BTW, I was in DC this past weekend. Of course, I tuned in to the weather channel. They had postings on Harrisburg on the local on the 8s. I'd forgotten how close Harrisburg is.

hurigo, when i was in avon last month there are no lifeguards.
you really have to be on your guard when swimming in the ocean.
it is so much better when the temps are in the 90's to be on the beach. it hasn't really been that unbearable around here this summer. we had a week back in the beginning of June, but that has pretty much been it.

hurigo- Haven't really thought about that idea. Currently there is a bermuda high that if the low would develop will help the low to hug the shoreline. Interesting scenerio. Water temperatures are adequate for development. Not sure on shear levels though off the east coast of Florida? It is something to watch, but pretty hard to predict at this point. I will be sure to keep you updated!

Blizz, do you have the time to comment on that blob of convection on the western shore of Florida? I'm wondering if it might traverse FL and blow up in the Atlantic. Then, depending on the mood of the Bermuda High or the endless trofs (?sp) exiting, it could hug the coast or scoot out to sea.

So Blizz and Patch, you know what I'm talking about with those rip currents! There are very many private area beaches where there are no lifeguards.

I guess ya'll are sufferin' with the 90s up there. Down here, I can easily take the lower and mid-90s, but I don't do so well when it goes above 98.

well said hurigo. especially around your beaches where there any many lifeguards if any. there were some deaths this past weekend from rip currents on the nj shore. they say the waves and rip currents are from bertha, also.

TheRasberryPatch- Wow those plants sound bountiful in crop production. I just do not have enough room for a potato patch.

hurigo- Yes it is nice weather with crystal blue sky. And dewpoints have been a nice upper 50s. Got up to 91degrees though today so that may it a little warm. Yes I had heard about the bad rip currents. In fact three years ago I was caught in a rip current near Emerald Isle, NC. It was pretty wild. And as you said as soon as I swam parallel to the shore I got out of the rip current.

Hello Blizz,
We are having absolutely beautiful weather. It's the kind of weather the Chamber of Commerce would order if that were possible. The temps are 80s and the humidity is low. We do have a problem with coastal flood watch statements and rip currents. Visitors, who are not used to swimming in the Atlantic, may not know what to do when caught in a rip current. Some may not even know what a rip current is. When caught in a rip current (you'll know you're in one if you cannot swim to shore) one should swim parallel to the beach. Don't try to fight the current. Further north or south, the current will likely change and one can swim in.

last year was my first year for potatoes. it was my first year in this house with this garden. i only had four rows with some plants not coming up and got an incredible amount of fingerlings. they are so tasty. i can't wait to grill them in a pan with onions and sauce. i digressed. i didn't weigh them, but probably filled a 50lb potato bag. i was eating them until november.
this year i have 5 rows and every potato produced a plant. i can't even imagine how many i will have once i dig them up. i have one row of rose gold, one row of yukon gold, one row of corolla, one row of rose finn apple fingerling and one row of russian banana fingerling. the fingerlings produce an incredible amount of potatoes for one plant.
hope your plants are doing well.

Lol, I guess I did not specify. For the months December 2008 through January 2009 that outlook is for. But take the model's prediction with a grain of salt.

Well I just heard the EURO model long term forecast was released and calls for signifcant blocking located near the Hudson Bay calling for very cold conditions in the northern parts of the country including the midwest and northeast. Also an active storm track is shown setup bringing above normal precipitation. This is all quite interesting to say the least.

check your vws and where it is sending - that it is sending to the server correctly. i had that problem a week ago. i wasn't paying any attention and looked up my data and found that it wasn't being updated to find that under server was "update". don't know how that was there, but i changed it back. also, when they changed the server they didn't have my pictures of the station. i just contacted them and they have corrected the situation. those guys are on the ball when you have questions or problems. good luck

Awesome blog, Blizz!!

Man, I'm jealous...I really am...haha

Mt.Washington is awesome and you captured some great pics! Personally, I like the one that's second from the bottom. Those clouds on the horizon look like distant snow-capped mountains.

I'm glad that you got some clear skies to be able to take those pics. You kind of lucked out by getting both the fog and the clear skies. Mt.Washington isn't Mt.Washington without it's fog, even though fog is kind of boring, that zero visibility stuff ain't too boring...lol

Blizzard-your photos and description of your trip to Mt.Washington are outstanding. I am envious! I was wondering if you got to ask them about the volunteer program they have for members, which allows you to spend a week up at the observatory in exchange for doing chores (cooking, cleaning, etc.). That is something I'd be willing to do just to spend some time up there!

wow, i hadn't realized about tomorrow. i moved into this house back in october 2006 which took signifcant damage from the tornado. the previous owners were out of their house for 6 months while it was being rebuilt. a neighbor has pictures on a cd he gave me that i will try and post of before and after. it was amazing how many large and tall trees were completely destroyed.

btw - just been eating cucumbers. i will have so many in a couple of weeks. and will have to make some b&b pickles. when you plant pickling cucumbers they produce so fast and at a fast rate. i have picked at least 30 cukes already from 9 plants.
