    Default Contest: December's Low Temperature

    I'm trying to get some action going here so I decided to launch a contest to guess/predict December's low temperature. Entries will be closed after December 5th. No prizes for now, but if this goes well maybe I will sponsor some small prize for future contests.

    There's absolutely no skill involved in my guess, just a guess. I will go for a low of -20F. I reserve the right to change this before voting closes.

    Edit: Thanks for that info on the range of record lows, that should be helpful. Even with that data I will stick with my current guess. My theory, wrong or not, is that Mount Washington approaches or exceeds a daily record almost every month. At worst once every three months. Which brings -20F into play.

    Great Idea!

    A little background to make this fair...
    From the MWO Archives.

    -Average Daily Temperatures in DEC range from 8F to 15F
    -Record Lows Range from (-18F) at the beginning of the month to (-46F) near the end.
    -Warmest Dec Temperature: 47F
    -Lowest December Temp Last year was -22F

    I'm going to go with a balmy -9F for reasons I do not wish to disclose!
