They call it the nastiest weather in North America, and they ain't kidding. The wind was roaring Saturday on top of Mt. Washington!

According to the brave and hearty souls on the Mt Washington Observatory:

It's off the charts! An incredible wind storm is ongoing this morning on the summit, with a peak gust of 148 mph reaching the highest levels observed in over a decade!
