MOUNT WASHINGTON OBSERVATORY LIFE AND WORK
MOULTONBOROUGH — Will Broussard will present "Home of the World's Worst Weather" on Monday, July 14 at 7 p.m. at the Moultonborough Library.
An infamous place of extremes, 6,288-foot Mount Washington, New Hampshire has been captivating audiences for hundreds of years.
While many places on Earth experience severe weather, few are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continuously-staffed outpost on this remote alpine peak since 1932, meaning we have come to know it unlike anyone else.
Through the years, the hardy men and women of the Observatory have experienced white-out blizzards, stunning 110-mile vistas, and everything in between. They have survived a 231 mph wind gust, endless days of disorienting fog, and snow drifts more than 20 feet tall. They have worked with scientists and celebrities, students and snow rangers. They have amassed one of North America's longest continuous climate records, and developed an intimate understanding of the place known as the "Home of the World's Worst Weather."
