The clues:

First: On April 12, 1934, New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Observatory weather station recorded a surface wind speed of 231 miles per hour — a record that stands today, securing the summit’s reputation for experiencing weather as severe as any on Earth.

Second: Since 1952, the New Hampshire primary has been seen as not only the first presidential primary but the most important catalyst for a candidate’s future aspirations. When candidates such as 1960 Democratic contender John F. Kennedy toured the state, hordes of media followed. That attention has increased ever since. The days before the January primary are a flurry of nonstop appearances and speeches — all captured by streams of reporters and cameras.

PREVIOUS PAIRING ANSWER

Reliable Seal

Earl Tupper’s invention of Tupperware after World War II brought the New Hampshire native fame and fortune as American homemakers flocked to parties demonstrating his containers’ airtight, failproof plastic seal.

For more than 20 years Andre the seal was Rockport, Maine’s most beloved and famous visitor, never failing to make the swim from Boston’s New England Aquarium to his summer home in the harbor off Penobscot Bay.
