    Default May 2104 Contest - Total minutes of sunshine

    With April's contest being all about the rain, lets add a little bit of light and set May's contest to total minutes of sunshine! That will brighten things up a bit I hope! For the month of May, there are a total of 27,878 minutes of sunshine during the month. Hopefully, there will be lots of sunshine on the summit this coming May.

    This month's rules:

    1. One submission per ID
    2. There cannot be any duplicates. If someone has guessed that number first, they own the number for the month. There are plenty of numbers to choose from
    3. If there is no winner, the person closet to the final number will be declared the winner
    4. The official number will come from the F6 report for the month of May
    5. Anyone can enter the contest, including those that happen to work on the summit (they sure are lucky!)
    6. Any attempt to keep the summit clear of clouds so more sunshine can pour down onto the summit is prohibited. This includes setting up some sort of giant fan that is powerful enough to push the clouds away
    7. And finally, have fun with this!

    All entries need to be in by April 30th, at 11:59 PM. Good luck everyone

    9714 is my guess.

    Since the rules only say I can't blow clouds away, once we hit that number I'm bringing up a fog machine.

    Well, darn. I didn't specify that in the rules. Hmmm. You got me there!

    09217 minutes - tdb1977

    10550 minutes - Moa57
    11300 minutes - snow miser

    I was going to go with 1 minute and then have the fog machine show up for the rest of the month, but I decided that would be just to cruel to happen. Thanks for the idea sdways01

    At least give them a full hour or so clear up there.
