    7 days into the month and the average wind speed is 26.7, which rounded up to 27 miles per hour. Still a lot of time to go for the month, but BaxterCA2 is currently dead on with the gust.

    Just to be sure we are all on the same page.

    4. If the proper answer is not selected by anyone, the winner will be the closest guesser whose number is numerically lower than the actual answer. In other words, don't go too far hot or you will be left out in the cold

    As of 8/7/12 the average wind speed is 24.8 mph. I would interpret this as Snow Miser having the correct answer/guess so far.

    Hi all
    Not too worried about the avg wind speed at this point since it's only August 8th..... we all should know the wind will pick up, and get slower that's a fact.

    This is so true. It seems to be really quiet on the mountain lately, but it can change fiercely in a very short time...

    That's for sure Prez! The mountain's stability now is not to be taken lightly.

    Oh Snow Miser....The Mountain is stable (as far as I know) but, the wind....the wind changes everyday, every minute. So far you are taking this contest but, it ain't over until the fat lady sings or the F6 report for the month is offical.... See ya on the first
