Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Thanks whitemtvisitor for the great December contest. Things have slowed enough that I am able to put some thoughts and ideas down for the first contest of 2013. For January, you will need to guess the amount of precipitation that is reported by the summit. Please enter all guesses by next Monday night at 11:59 PM.

1. Entries can have decimal number but only out one digit pass the decimal point
2. One submission per forum ID
3. There can be no duplicates. First person to submit a particular number will own that guess.
4. If the proper answer is not selected by anyone, the winner will be the closest guess, without going over, according to the F6 report.
5. Any attempt to alter the amount of precipitation that the summit receives for the month will be an automatically disqualification.
6. All guesses must be submitted here on this forum by the end of December 31st.
7. The official source of data is the Daily F6 as published on the Observatory's web site.
8. Anyone & everyone will be allowed to enter.
9. Most of all... Have Fun!!!

Good luck everyone!

Thanks for posting the new contest! Is the total amount of precipitation we have to guess in the "TOTAL (EQUIV)" column? If yes, my guess will be 2.96".

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!

I'll go with 3.79" "TOTAL (EQUIV)"

Yes. We are looking for total (equiv). Also, I made a mistake on line 1 in the rules. It should be out two decimal spots and not one. Opps :o

Everyone is still over for the month with 1.75" of precipitation on the summit so far this month. The February contest will be coming out in the next few days once I finalize everything in my head. So be on the look out for it to pop up.

3 days to go in the month and the summit sits at 3.44" of precipitation. This puts sdways01 in the club house with 3.14 inches of liquid. Just .14 inches and KathC will take over the leaderboard. The last 3 days are leading up to some big excitement.

The monthly total now stands at 3.59 inches of liquid, and this moves KathyC to first place. Two days left and its anyone's game from here. Good luck!!

3.93 is now showing up on the F6 report. whitemtnvisitor is now in the driver's seat. Will enough be collected over the final day to put either Anna LeBlanc or myself into the winners circle? Or will whitemtnvisitor hold on for the victory. Just 11 tiny hours remain!

I'm sure it's one of you guys, but I'm leaning toward you tdb 1977. It poured something fierce in Intervale last night from 2 am to 6 am, & then threw in a couple of mid morning deluges, just to top it off. I would be really surprised if the number came in less than your guess. Good luck to both of you as another fun contest comes to an end.

With a whooping 1.59 inches yesterday, the summit picked up 5.52 inches for the month. I guess this means, I won! That seems a little weird to put that down. Thanks everyone for playing in the January contest!
