    Wow - we got down to +5 F last night. Someone needs to leave the freezer door open for a while to get in the range for this contest.

    We hit our first negative number for a daily low temperature. It got to -1 F. We need more cold to get things into our guesses range.

    We are at -4 F here on the summit at 9:56 PM. So, we will have a new low for the month. But, we are not even close to our guesses for the contest.

    Many of us must have been thinking of Jan and Feb temps?

    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!

    Looks like it, wish I had checked in sooner to knock some sense into these guesses.

    I think there is still a page that shows normals, means and extremes for each month. That is a great starting point for future guesses.

    We will definitely have to consult that before make our guesses for the next contest.

    The F6 pages have all of that info. In December 2010 there was a low of -15. In December of 08 & 09, it was -25, so a lot of the guesses are right in the ballpark of recent history.

    Good point, I guess December has consistently produced a low number the past three years.

    The past F6 reports for December are exactly why I picked the temp I did.

    Come on Santa I thought you were going to have a little talk with Mother Nature for us, we're not liking this warm weather....We want SNOW!!!

    Oh what's that?? There's a big o' storm coming in from the West at the same time as the "Bad" weather crew is returning to the Rock Pile...hmmm interesting.
