    Whether you fly a kite in a soft summer breeze or shovel snow after a January blizzard, the dynamics of wind and weather remain the same. Eric Pinder, certified observer at Mount Washington Meteorological Observatory, takes listeners on a voyage of discovery through the atmosphere, a swirling ocean of air that surrounds and sustains life. The journey begins in a sunny New England woodlot and ends atop the polar ice of Antarctica - where we learn, remarkably, that the two extremes are not so different after all.
