Thursday, April 12, 1934

Walked to school with Ruth Ray, Pauline and Nadine. Waited for them after school.

Mount Washington, New Hampshire
Located in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains

Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft
 (1,917 m), famous for dangerously erratic weather. For 76 years, a weather observatory on 
 the summit held the record for the highest wind gust directly measured at the Earth's surface,
 231 mph (372 km/h) (or 103 m/s), on the afternoon of April 12, 1934.
