Snow in July

A dusting crowns Mount Washington.

Snow in July

It may be heading to 100 around here, but here is a cooling tidbit.

Up on the top of Mount Washington, N.H. -- where winter does sleep, just not very much -- snow was reported yesterday.

Officially, 0.2 inches was recorded at the summit on a day when the temperature got all the way to 37. Winds go up to 69 m.p.h., with an average speed of 41.

Here is the eyewitness report from the observer on duty.
