STORIES ABOUT MT. WASHINGTON -- Eric Pinder, the author of "Cat in the Clouds," visited students at Lunenburg Elementary School on Feb. 13. Eric fascinated students with stories and movies about his years as a worker at the Observatory on Mt. Washington. Walking against winds of 100-plus miles per hour to prepare weather instruments was all part of a day's work, but there are plenty of benefits to working on a mountain "with the world's worst weather. Students giggled as they watched wind-skiing, soap bubbles freezing, and liquids "blowing" into the atmosphere. They were all fascinated with photos and stories of the cats at the mountain. The author visit and the books for each child were provided through funds from Children's Literacy Foundation (CLiF) Grant. Above, Eric signs a book for Ethan Labounty, a first grader.
