OKay I am in! To start off, today I rode up Donner Pass (from Truckee, CA up Old 40) in 20 degree, windy (at least 10mph winds with some gusts) weather and so let's see...that's what 6 points?

50min X 6 = 300 Suckitude

Yeah that seams about right...wasn't too bad...do I get an extra point for taking beanie (under my helmet) off on an incline without stopping and holding it the whole way?

Welcome to the challenge. I took the liberty of adding your name to the tracking spreadsheet (link below). Feel free to fill in past activities if you have enough information to guesstimate your score.

Based on what you have said I get 5 points per minute rather than 6. Although if you give yourself the benefit of the doubt and say the wind was 11 mph instead of 10 mph you can add another point for wind. Of course I don't know if there was any snow or rain which will also increase your points per minute.

Cycling bonus - 1 point
20 degrees F - 3 points
10 mph wind - 1 point

The long range forecast in Calgary calls for ridiculously warm temperatures for this time of year. And I have a business trip to Las Vegas from Mar 15 - 20. It wouldn't surprise me if I don't count any more points between now and the end of the challenge.

Today is the last day of the Crappy Winter Weather Challenge 2014 - 2015. So if anyone has any data to enter get it in soon. However, at this point any new data that is added is obviously not going to have much effect on the final standings.

Lumber Dad had the highest score for every single month of the challenge.
Congratulations Lumber Dad on your dominance of the crappy winter weather challenge!
Don

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.
