2011 Summer Contest... The Final Countdown

10 AM Thursday Update... Thanks so much Arkansas.  I just received notification that the Arkansas Weather Blog won best blog in the state of Arkansas by the Society of Professional Journalists.  Thanks for reading.  As you know, this blog has become a passion of mine!

8:30 PM Wednesday Update... If you want to see amazing time lapse of clouds in Maumelle from Wednesday, check out my facebook fan page.  Thanks to my friend Billy for shooting it.  It's awesome!


Only 7 days left in the summer contest and mother nature threw us a curve ball Wednesday with highs only in the lower 80s.  Remember, we're using "Price Is Right" rules.  The closest without going over wins.  Let's say high temperatures hit 90 degrees everyday through the end of the month, that will put a smile on "WeatherNinja's" face wouldn't it?  Anything can happen and others are in the running, except me.  I'm wayyyyyy out of it right now.  The winner of contest #1 wins a free, 1 year subscription to, a blog shirt, and 4 Gold Corral tickets.

The winner of contest #2 (guessing the number of 100 degree days) wins one free copy of RadarScope for IPhone users, one free copy of RadarScope for mac users,  4 tickets to the Golden Corral and an "Arkansas Weather Blog" t-shirt.  If we don't get any more 100 degree days, Adam Smith will be the winner.  Let's wait and see before congratulating Adam, but it's looking very good for him right now.  The contest numbers are below.

We are coming down to the wire in the Arkansas Weather Blog summer contest.  If we don't get any more 100 degree days, Adam Smith will be the winner of contest #2 with 18, 100 degree days so far this year.  This means contest #1 is the one to watch.  Only a handful are still in the running.  I'll keep this updated as we close in on the final day, August 31st.  An explanation of the contests can be found by clicking "Summer Contest" in the bar above.
