Can You Believe SNOW!!!

 Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft (1,917 m) and the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River. It is famous for dangerously erratic weather. For 76 years, until 2010, a weather observatory on the summit held the record for the highest wind gust directly measured at the Earth's surface, 231 mph (372 km/h or 103 m/s), on the afternoon of April 12, 1934
Here were the conditions on Mount Washington last night.

Temperature  22.8°F
Wind35.1 mph

Before mom went to bed, Dad told her that the weather guessers were saying there could be 5 - 8 inches of snow on Mount Washington overnight. Boy, am I HAPPY I don't live there!
