Well… We chose the over and it looks like that was a good bet seeing as there is currently snow on the summit of Mount Washington.
The highest peak in New England saw its first snowfall of the season over the night and freezing temps and fog are continuing to cloud the mountain. It looks as though it was just a dusting but hey– we’ll take it.
LET IT SNOW!
