    3. If your date has past and there has not been 2.0" or more of snow, you are out - in the cold.

    4. You may only enter once.

    5. If you work for a company that alters the weather, makes snow over 6,000 feet, or can move mountains to be under snow clouds - you are not allowed to enter.

    6. The winner gets to make a huge snowman at the base of Tuckerman Headwall by themselves.
    The original rules are re-posted here with numbers. Rule #5 is important - we do not want anyone to have a fair advantage.

    Does that mean I may not be able to enter next time?
    Bob

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    It depends on which part of rule #5 applies to you and what the contest topic is.

    I don't work for a company that does that. My snow making, mountain moving machine is home made so I was still in. Until today, I couldn't get the final part I needed because of the holiday. Maybe next year.

    Next year the rules could be slightly different. But, we do know for this year - you are out. Rich has today and tomorrow according to the rules. But, he also has beautiful non-snow weather days. Does Breeze have a chance as we approach the weekend storm?

    November 4th or the day after the Yankees get knocked out of the postseason, whichever comes first!



    Ohhhhhhh and while we're at it please form some nice climbable ice in Huntington's by say Dec 15ish as that looks like my "weekend trip" this year.... hoping to go up Yale Gully if I can get somebody to tie a rope with, or south gully if solo..............but probably way to early for the ice to form?

    As we wrap up the 14th, I know I am out unless it starts snowing hard real fast.

    Looks like you called it.......


    "Precipitation will be heavy at times and although this storm should see mostly snow on the higher summits, with temperatures hovering right around freezing, rain, freezing rain, sleet, or wet snow can be expected this afternoon through Friday."
