    Radio Tower Blown Over on Sugarloaf

    Heard it was rated to 140 mph. Would've been a fun ride on Timberline.

    Mt. Washington gusted to 171 mph...highest gust ever recorded in February.

    Might've been a problem with less snow but the depths should be adding some stability. Then again this is Sugarloaf, a lift could fall over in calm winds lol.

    YUP Mt Wash hit 171mph, with sustained winds of 140+ !!

    Across the street at The Cat wind measured w/ a hand anemometer to be 114mph

    Didn't seem any worse today than it was before the tower went down. But who knows once a weekend crowd arrives and uses up the service.
