What a Windstorm!

Posted April 18, 2007

The Nor'easter brought some gusty winds to our area -- especially in the mountains, where Asheville had a 66 mph wind gust.  But it was nothing compared to the winds atop Mount Washington in New Hampshire.

The observatory recorded 120 mph sustained winds and a gust to 156 mph during this week's storm.  They posted amazing video on YouTube of the winds blowing hard against the observatory's door.
