    Default Bonus Contest! Highest Wind Gust from big storm early next week

    Pretty simple. Place your guess to the highest wind gust the summit will receive from the storm that will include "Sandy". All guesses will need to be in by 12:00 AM Monday morning. Anyone can join in the fun. Models are showing this system *could* move directly into New England and the summit should have experience some wicked weather from this storm. Closest to the correct number will be the winner. Final number will be determined from the F6 report. Good luck!

    not yet seeing all I want to see with the forecast, but I'm going to see " the Prez" @ 127 and raise that high wind bid to 144 mph.

    Mind you, I DON'T want that whistling over my head or any one elses, but don't forget Sandy is blocked into the western part of the North Atlantic Basin by Tony.

    My best scenario would keep both of them Fish Storms.
