Detailed Product Description
New Hampshire, 2008, 1st edition. 100 pp, b/w photos. New paperback.

Where can you build a snowman in June, commute by sled, and witness hurricane-force winds twelve months out of the year? The answer is only at the 6288-foot-high Mount Washington Observatory, perched among the clouds in New Hampshire's White Mountains.
 
A record-breaking 231-mph gust of wind shrieked across the summit in 1934, earning the mountain its nickname: "Home of the World's Worst Weather." A few hardy souls live at the Observatory year-round, enduring savage thunderstorms, twenty-foot snowdrifts, blinding fog, and odd questions from visitors ("Can you see New Hampshire from here?").
 
Discover what a meteorologist's typical day is like in the harsh but spectacular world above timberline. Come meet Nin the Cat, Marty on the Mountain, tobogganing ravens, hapless hikers, and meandering moose. These humorous and informative stories about life on a mountaintop are sure to appeal to hikers and weather aficionados alike. Foreword by meteorologist Mish Michaels.
