I started out with 3-5, then changed on the last day of changes to 4-7 because I was tired of being overly pessimistic about Arctic sea ice.  Oh well.
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

I really expected it would end 4th, but 3-5 seems to have done the trick.  :)
Compare, compare, compare

As did I.  It was extremely close with 2010.

Ah, just missed the correct slot by one day. Let's see if the Arctic drops back to 2nd place today.

I went for 3-5.  Beginners luck I guess.

I was torn between 3-5 and 4-7, and ulyimstely wrnt for the latter, partly since the former is relatively narrow in  numerical terms (greater than 12.10 and less than 12.34, vs greater than 12.19 and less than 12.47). Honestly, though, I'd not be too surprised by anything between 11.9 and 12.6.

Ah, regrets. So it goes.

Just to show how close they were, recent JAXA data is now 5th lowest.

I guessed 12.15, (2nd or 3rd place), and the end result was 12.16.

I considerably under-estimated the Pacific ice, and considerably over-estimated the Atlantic ice. The errors cancelled each other out ;D

Happy New Year everyone!
