    Default Big Wind Contest ...next 48 hours

    A huge pressure gradient is setting up behind this storm, and winds could easily be the highest of the year...

    I have my guess in at 148mph for the peak early Saturday Morning...

    On a side note, we've seen the pictures of the HEAVY icing at treeline right now on Tim/Vals pictures. I'm very concerned about tree damage with this storm...

    Deadline for entry....11:59 PM tonight (Thursday)

    It was pretty warm up there last night, don't you think most of that ice is gone?

    It was pretty warm, but there was also alot of ice...
    I suspect you're likely right though... much of it probably came down...the forest dodges a bullet!
