If the automated weather station on Mount Washington is to be believed, a wind gust of 101 miles per hour was recorded around midnight on Dec. 1. It’s not clear when and if the information is verified but let’s just say it was plenty windy on Mount Washington.
While the winds have died down and electrical power is being restored, many Mount Washington residents like Erin Crist are only just beginning to deal with the windstorm’s aftermath. A giant eucalyptus tree fell on her home near Frontac Avenue and Mavis Drive and destroyed the roof. The tree is still there but Crist has moved in with family in Highland Park. Said Crist by email:
We weren’t there when it fell, but our corgi puppy was. No damage inside the house and he was OK.
