This record-breaking wind proved that real weather extremes do rule mountaintops. Freezing cold temperatures, exceptionally high winds, dense fog, heavy icing and abundant snowfall on Mount Washington rival some of the most rugged places on Earth, including Antarctica. The life-threatening weather extremes here far exceed those which have been recorded in the polar regions and on peaks three and four times Mount Washington's height.
Who would have thought that this little peak in New Hampshire, a place that appears so beautiful and serene to distant onlookers, would be home to the worst weather in the world? Let's take a closer look into this unique atmospheric phenomenon.
