Don't say that it will snow 28 times this winter

Here's a scary thought: Will the number of snowfalls in one winter equal the date that the first snowfall fell in the season?

If so, we are in for 28 snowfalls during the winter of 2012-13. (On Oct. 28 was recorded 1.1 inches of snow.) Guy Verhoff, Pandora weather observer, didn't confirm that fact, but did provide a summary of the October weather. Here goes:

The high temperature of October was 78 degrees on Oct. 24. The low was 33 degrees on Oct. 11 and Oct. 30. The average October 2012 daily temperature was 52 degrees. The normal average temperature for October is 52.1 degrees.

Someone will win an iPad; It might as well be you

Here's a message from the Ada Academic Boosters: Want to win an iPad for Christmas? If you are an Ada sixth grader through senior, you are in luck.

The final day to enter is Dec. 1. The winner will be drawn on the live video feed during morning announcements. Bring box tops to your English teacher’s classroom. Put 10 labels in a plastic baggie with your name and drop it off to your English teacher.
