    Default Contest - 1st Major Snow Recorded

    Lets start a new contest to guess the date of the first snow of the winter. Using the daily F6 report as the judge, what day will we have 1.0 inches of snow or more? The winner will be the closest guess either side of the actual date.

    Excellent contest idea...

    For those interested, here's some normals and averages:
    http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/normals.php

    We have had an inch+ in August before, and it's common in September, but not the last two years, which took until October 14th and 20th respectively. In 2005, it took until the 30th or September. In 2002, 3.5 inches fell on September 11th.

    So...this year...I'm going to bet on September 17th!

    Just an observation Brad...you should probably edit to put a closing date on the entries.

    We need a closing date for guesses. The date is August 15th at 9PM EDT.
