Congrats Mark! We should meet up there for a celebratory hike! My son is 10 today and he said it would snow on his b-day on the summit! Never question a 10year old!
Congratulations Mark and Rich! Rich you should be very proud of your son.Wish him a Happy Birthday from all of us.
Congrats to you both....
October is one of the greatest months of the year....
Won't make the summit this year.
Well, since some of you don't find weather observers/meteorologist on the actual summit reliable sources of information for this contest (even though neither of us entered), the excel version of the WS Form F-6 has been posted with an "official" 7.4 inches for the 13th of October.
Staff Meteorologist/Night Observer, KMWN (Mt Washington Obs., NH)
We have a Winnah-s. Congratulations, officially, to Mark and Rich! 7.4 inches shows up on the F6 this morning.
I'm sure Marty will be very proud to wear his spider collar from his Auntie Kathy this year too.
Sorry you won't make it to the summit this year but I'm sure Marty knows how much you love him.
He was very affectionate and playful when we visited him this Summer.He makes the purrrrfect Halloween mascot don't you think?
Keep close to Nature's heart...
and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean. - John Muir
