Watch: Giant Wind Gusts Lift Meteorologist

A brave meteorologist at New Hampshire's Mount Washington provided an incredible demonstration of the powerful winds found atop the peak when he stepped out onto the observation deck.

Facing off against gusts reaching as high as 109 miles-per-hour, the weather observer is able to withstand the winds at first, but was tossed in the air when he jumps into the enormous force.

Upon landing on the ground, he then gets an impromptu wind-powered ride along the ground until getting up and trying again.

Based on his performance, he may be able to make a career out of being a mime, should the whole weather thing not work out.
