...the highest wind speed on our planet (in history) was recorded there. He said that I was full of beans. Who's correct?

I hope you were not talking about me. All I said is I would vote for Mt. Rainier as having the worst weather based on its record snowfall amounts. I have never made a comment on wind speed at either Mountain. Mt. Washington indeed has bad weather, as does Mt. Rainier and other mountains. Comparing them is the problem since Rainier has received over 1100" of snow in a year and Mt. Washington has high winds. Which is worse depends upon which mountain you are climbing and the conditions during the climb. Hopefully, your comments are directed towards someone else, so your credibility remains intact.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! Are you even serious? Ask any weather man which mountain has worse weather. If you tell them that it's Mt. Rainier they will laugh in your face. Just as I do. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!
But actually as a matter of fact Mt. Washington lost the wind speed record two or three years ago to some mountain on south Georgia island, and then got it back last year. So there are surely mountains out there ith worse winds on occasion, but none of them have weather stations.
Mt. Washington also more recorded deaths in the last hundred years than any other mountain in the world, and it's not like there's nobody climbing Rainier.
If you try your arguement with a weather man they really will laugh at you.
