    Default Febraruy 2013 Contest - How cold will it be?

    Greetings and saluations everyone. With January now halfway over, its time to start getting entries in for the February contest. You goal for February is to guess how cold will be on the summit. You are looking for the lowest temperature the summit experiences over the 28 day period. Here are the rules:

    1. Entries can have decimal number but only out one digit pass the decimal point
    2. One submission per forum ID
    3. There can be no duplicates. First person to submit a particular number will own that guess.
    4. If the proper answer is not selected by anyone, the winner will be the closest guess, without going over, according to the F6 report.
    5. Any attempt to alter the summit's temperature is not allowed. Bribing the night observer is allowed - but they cannot influence the temperature readings.
    6. All guesses must be submitted here on this forum by the end of January 31st.
    7. The official source of data is the Daily F6 as published on the Observatory's web site.
    8. Anyone & everyone will be allowed to enter.
    9. Most of all... Have Fun!!!

    May the coldest number win this month! Good luck!

    In regards to the first rule, the numbers on the F6 report are whole numbers, not decimal numbers.

    Maybe I'm getting too technical but, do you mean the average for the month (28 day period) or on any given day within the 28 period?

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees

    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Technically, if I don't bring up these things....then there will be flaws in the system and we can't have that on my watch.

    You are looking for the lowest number recorded. I pretty much copied and pasted the rules from the last contest to this contest, so that is why the decimal number is there for the first rule.
