I'll go with 31.5, Taking in account that the astrological gibberish coincides with the planetary perpendicularity of Nostradamus' long range BS combined with the meteorology of Dr. Gray's anatomy.

Lots of rain coming this week, at least in Southern NH, not sure how that will be up top on the rockpile, but I'm sure it will be warm(er)

Now I'm thinking my guess was a tad too high :(

ugh rain and fog.

Did I say 73.5, I really meant 7.35 :)

The summit is looking rocky again. Or as I used to call it when teaching at Camden Snow Bowl..."low tide" (when the rocks would peek through the melting snow)

If I guess low for Feb we'll get hammered! I guessed big for January and it'd been pretty low so far (unless it starts snowing nonstop for the new few days)

17.5 for the month now...with only two more shots before the end of the month...meager!

18.4 inches so far. We are running out of time! We have to get to 30.2 inches for EricJ to win. Or else JimJ wins without even being close.

Brad
01-28-2008, 08:39 AM
20.5 inches - we are running out of time.

Steve M

we need a really huge snowstorm.

EricJ

10" would be huge enough.

I will guess 34.7

Hi NJgail...
Despite the fact that the deadline has passed...I see no reason not to let you in with this guess.

Typically though, contests close on the 4th of the month...

Please play again!

Brad

Please play again!
It sure looks like you will be the winner for January. Can he do two in a row? Stay tuned because we are running out of time.

Not to mention, they typically close before the outcome is decided. Can I toss in my guess? I'm going for one tenth less than whatever Jim put down.

21.5 inches so far for January! Last day to make snow. Does it have to be natural or can it be man-made? We are about out of time.

Steve M
01-31-2008, 07:50 AM
Yes, we are out of time, and most of us have egg on our face!:o

JimS

21.5 it is! Now I have to look in my magic crystal ball for February!

Brad
02-05-2008, 07:12 PM
We have to officially declare JimS the winner for January. The fact that he has inside information by being a recent observer (I assume the less recent ones here are just rusty) does not have much bearing on the outcome.

We will see what success he has in February.
