Celebrated each year in the United States on April 12, it is National Big Wind Day. This day commemorates the recording of, what was, the highest natural wind gust measured on the Earth’s surface. On the afternoon of April 12, 1934, the Mount Washington Observatory recorded winds at 231 miles per hour.  Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft and it is the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River.
