Default Not today, I think.

Several of the streams I fish start on the slopes of Mt Washington, in NH.

I just looked at the weather there this morning:

"WEATHER: Currently the summit of Mt. Washington is at -26F (-32C) with winds gusting just shy of 100mph (161kph). These are very challenging conditions for travel above treeline. Even down lower on the mountain, we caution you to be conservative with your decisions today."

This is why they have signs like this along the trails.

I agree, no need to be out in those kind of conditions!
Here I am whining about 10-15 mph winds.

Good call! Folks die in such places because they think they can conquer nature. They can't. Best we can do is deal with it. Too many don't understand the awesome power that nature has & fail to prepare for the worse nature can offer.

If you get caught out there in a bad situation & are prepared, your chances of surviving are better. But, best to not put yourself in those situations to begin with if you don't have to.

That's why the wild brook trout fishing is so good under the rock pile.
Keeps the whimps away.

Fishing, but I didn't get there today. Other stuff happened.

Looks like Thursday or Friday now.
