Big Wind Day

Date When Celebrated : Always April 12th

Big Wind Day commemorates the highest wind speed ever recorded on the planet. Can you guess where?  No, it wasn't in the middle of a hurricane or a tornado.

On April 12, 1934, the staff of the Mount Washington Observatory recorded the highest surface wind ever measured, anywhere on earth. This big wind was officially recorded at 231 miles per hour. Imagine the difficulties of even making a recording under those conditions back then!

Will this record ever be broken? Perhaps, but until then, enjoy Big Wind Day. 

Not the "Big Wind" you expected- - When talking to the family about documenting "Big Wind" day, family members teased "quick everyone, get out of the room!"


Origin of "Big Wind Day":

While we discovered why this day was created, we don't know who created it, or when. Perhaps, the records of it's creation are "Gone with the Wind".
