Greetings and saluations everyone. With January now halfway over, its time to start getting entries in for the February contest. You goal for February is to guess how cold will be on the summit. You are looking for the lowest temperature the summit experiences over the 28 day period. Here are the rules:

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 summit's temperature is not allowed. Bribing the night observer is allowed - but they cannot influence the temperature readings.
6. All guesses must be submitted here on this forum by the end of January 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!!!

May the coldest number win this month! Good luck!

In regards to the first rule, the numbers on the F6 report are whole numbers, not decimal numbers.

Maybe I'm getting too technical but, do you mean the average for the month (28 day period) or on any given day within the 28 period?

Technically, if I don't bring up these things....then there will be flaws in the system :cool: and we can't have that on my watch.

PS: Thanks for the compliment Miser <giggles>

You are looking for the lowest number recorded. I pretty much copied and pasted the rules from the last contest to this contest, so that is why the decimal number is there for the first rule.

After 1 day, the lowest temperature on the summit is -15. This number has to go lower! I will DQ myself somehow if it doesn't.

Well, I dont have to worry about DQing myself as the lowest temp yesterday was -17. Moa57 currently is the leader in the house!

As the calendar has rolled over to the month of March, its time to declare a winner in the February contest. Looking at the F6 report, I see the lowest temperature recorded for the month is -19. With a perfect guess, Snow Miser has officially won the February contest. Congrats on your cold hard fought win this month Snow Miser!
