    I'm going with 12. I'm smart. I'll let you in on a little secret on Seis de Mayo.

    If you're looking for a reality check its May. The average low is 30F. Unlike January, February or even March each day you advance makes a huge difference. Its only getting warmer.

    If you don't guess below 12 you'll lose.

    Dang! that would have been my guess. Well 11 and 10(twice) are taken too so I will say 9 F.

    Already squeezed out. There is a full moon coming up at the middle of the month but thinking it will be colder than now is a stretch. 12 degrees will probably win. Is the data available to more accuracy than whole degrees?

    8 degrees does not have a chance of winning. It is the next lowest I can take unless we can go with tenths. Is there a data source for the temp with tenths to determine a winner?

    There is, but its not statistically significant. Daily high and low temperatures are rounded to the nearest whole degree.

    We'll talk more about this tomorrow.
