    Default May 2013 Contest

    At the suggestion of tdb1977 and seeing as nobody has posted an idea as of yet for the May 2013 contest, I am proposing that the contest be the number of days in May that the low temperature for the day comes in at 32 degrees or colder. All picks must be in by 11:59 pm on Tuesday April 30th.

    Matt

    And in borrowing tdb's rules from previous contests, here they are:

    1. One submission per forum ID
    2. There can be no duplicates. First person to submit a particular number will own that guess.
    3. If the proper answer is not selected by anyone, the winner will be the closest guess, without going over, according to the
    F6 report.
    4. The official source of data is the Daily F6 as published on the Observatory's web site.
    5. Anyone & everyone will be allowed to enter.
    6. Most of all... Have Fun!!!

    Good luck everyone

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

    Well, basically a third of the way through May and it is beginning to look like we will have the second month in a row with no winner as we only have two days where the low temp was at 32 or below. Some cold coming in this week hopefully we will get several days to add to the total.

    Hopefully this little cold spell rolling through this Memorial Day weekend will give us a few more much needed days in order to get all of us in the ballpark.
