At the suggestion of tdb1977 and seeing as nobody has posted an idea as of yet for the May 2013 contest, I am proposing that the contest be the number of days in May that the low temperature for the day comes in at 32 degrees or colder. All picks must be in by 11:59 pm on Tuesday April 30th.

Matt

And in borrowing tdb's rules from previous contests, here they are:

1. One submission per forum ID
2. There can be no duplicates. First person to submit a particular number will own that guess.
3. If the proper answer is not selected by anyone, the winner will be the closest guess, without going over, according to the
F6 report.
4. The official source of data is the Daily F6 as published on the Observatory's web site.
5. Anyone & everyone will be allowed to enter.
6. Most of all... Have Fun!!!

Good luck everyone

Well, basically a third of the way through May and it is beginning to look like we will have the second month in a row with no winner as we only have two days where the low temp was at 32 or below. Some cold coming in this week hopefully we will get several days to add to the total.

Currently holding at 9 days after a short cold stretch

Hopefully this little cold spell rolling through this Memorial Day weekend will give us a few more much needed days in order to get all of us in the ballpark.

Coming down to the wire, it's going to be a close one and realistically I think only whitemtnvisitor with 13, sdways01 with 14 and Snow Miser with 15 are still in the running. We're now at 10 and it's already below for today which gives us 11.

Interesting how it looked like no one would possibly make it for a while, & now I'll watch it slip on by...

Congrats sdways01! I would have to say that you have it all wrapped up. No chill happening on the mountain tonight...

Rumor has it that Snow Miser is hauling a giant air conditioner to the summit today in an attempt to bring the low for the day below 32 degrees which would give him the win if he succeeds.

Shhh! I'm sneaking up the seldom used Nelson Crag Trail now with it strapped to my back. If this morning fog holds, I may be able to make it unseen. :D LOL

I hope you have a quiet generator or battery pack so people don't hear it and catch you.

It actually has a mini nuclear fusion reactor, capable of generating 1.21 gigawatts of energy, without making a sound. LOL

Make sure you set it to the correct day then.

Looks like this will be two in a row for me... since April didn't have an official winner.
