    I'm predicting we have a winner today. Summit has been reporting snow for the past six hours.

    Contest Admin has been notified that someone is trying to move the mountain away from this storm so she can win at her later picked date. So, therefore and for ever more - this specific individual contest is closed to new entries. May the Snow Gods rain - or is it reign?

    The first thing I read today was Brian's "Observer Comments", and then I knew, today should be the winning day for the "Snow Contest". Good luck Breeze!

    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's blowing a pretty stiff "breeze" up there, don't know if it's even sticking to be measured. At 10 AM it was mixed precip down to 4300" We'll have to wait until the day's tally is posted.

    If there is any "prize" for this, it is that the road closed for the day, and I'm home, warmed up, and dried off.

    It's pretty much in the bag, except somebody forgot to code the morning snow total in the synoptic metar at 7am (or is it 6am?)....interns.

    Bask in the warmth of your winning position. The F6 in the morning will be the official answer. But, it sure looks like you are left holding the snow shovel.

    Um Brad, I have it on record that < I > don't HAVE access to a shovel. I just deliver news and try to stay dry and warm.

    All grats and props go to others who do the real < drive> work. The MWAR road crew who punch through all manner of crap weather until they can' t: MWSP crew CHAINING UP all 4 at the Toll House to get to the top to fire up the kitchen, for hikers and trains, the Summit HIKER Shuttle crew who come in every day wanting to work, hoping to work, wanting to get people DOWN from the summit safely. Getting Dianne, Mike , Joannie , Chris, Bill, Gus, Danny and others up safely with the latest and current beta......

    So many people come together, to make the whole thing possible, it's hard to tell end from beginning. Getting to the end of it all for another season is tough. I don't work shift change, and I really regret not knowing faces and names.

    All 931xxx and 4/xxx groups have been coded today according to the RAW METAR archive: http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/get...72&raw=1&dbn=m

    The only thing I can find wrong is the COR sent in had the wrong hour so this may have made some METAR readers make it appear incorrect.

    We will declare the official winner tomorrow morning when the F6 is published. But, with 5 inches on the ground at the last measurement, it sure sounds like you picked the right day.

    Waiting for the official tally. With actual wind speeds close to 80 MPH for much of the day, which snowflake got measured?
