Grandfather Mountain's Unique Weather

(1/31/06) Last week, winds at Grandfather Mountain near Boone were clocked at more than 200-miles-per-hour. How high the winds actually got isn't known, because the equipment used to record that information only registers up to 200-miles-an-hour. To find out more about the very unique weather situation and its effects on the privately-owned tourist attraction, WFAE's Scott Graf spoke with its vice president, Harris Prevost.
