An Interesting Sight

Yesterday evening we had quite the interesting cloud off in the distance. Just to the left of the cloud is Mt. Washington (not pictured), the tallest mountain in New England and said to be the home of the worst weather in the United States. Mt Washington is centered between 3 different storm jets which produces insanely bad weather just about all year round at the peak.

In fact, Mt Washington holds the record for the fastest wind speed ever recorded and is well known around here for icicles that form horizontally because of the wind.

It's my guess that the wind swirling within the different storm jets formed this cool cloud. These pictures really don't do it justice.

Hopefully when we make it up to Mt Washington in the summer (we only live about 30 minutes away), we won't experience any of the horrible weather conditions, but it's possible. Our neighbors have told us to bring heavy sweaters when we go up to the peak.

Now it just needs to be summer already so we can start enjoying all the interesting things around us. Bring on the warm weather!
