***Update July 8th***

There is no longer any snow on Rib Mountain. If you haven't already, you can now say goodbye to the long cold Winter we just experienced. Having the last snow melt off of Rib Mountain is perhaps the final "nail in the coffin" for winter.

There was a small patch of snow on the "mountain" on Monday morning but when I arrived around 6pm in the evening it was gone. I still found it rather surreal that I was on Rib Mountain on July 7th and I was searching for snow. Last year when the contest did not end until June 30th, I thought it could never melt any later, but this year we set a new record. July 7th is the winning date for the snowmelt contest.

Congratulations to the surprisingly large number of people who predicted the winning date. We have 32 super forecasters who will be entered into the grand prize drawing. The drawing will occur live on Wake-Up Wisconsin this Thursday during the 6 to 7 am hour. In case you have forgotten (I know, it has been a long time since we started) there are 5 R-store gift cards up for grabs valued at $250, $150, $100, $50, and $25. All of those who are not drawn in the top 5 will receive a consolation prize of a free R-store car wash coupon.

Check the list of winners. If you are on it, give yourself a pat on the back and let your friends and family know about your awesome forecasting skills.
