The weather is a favorite topic of speculation, conversation, and sometimes consternation. Explore the many facets of New Hampshire’s weather history in Weather Permitting, a special exhibit at the Monadnock Center opening June 29 with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m.
In this exhibit, explore New Hampshire’s weather history from the cold to the hot and the wet to the dry. See vintage images and artifacts that illustrate our weather history. Weather Permitting includes record-setting storms like the Floods of 1936 and 2005, the Great New England Hurricane of 1938, the Blizzard of 1888 and 1978. A selection of historic thermometers and barometers made by the Charles Wilder Company of Peterborough are on display. A presentation of weather flags shows how the forecast was communicated in the days before radio, television, and the Internet.
Have you heard about the Cold Day? The year without a summer? The Dark Day? Do you know what weather event was the most deadly in New England history? Learn about these events and more in this fascinating look at the weather. Weather Permitting is on display through January 12, 2019.
