When Will The Snow Be Gone - Contest is Staring Early


Long time readers will know all about this event. You may notice it is starting early. That is because we have had a wild winter. From November to end of February we got 77 cm/30 inches of snow when the average is at least 200cm/79 inches. It has also been a very mild winter with lots of thawing. Because we don't know if this snow is going to stay much longer, we have decided to start our contest early.

The rules:

Pick a date between March 9 2024 and well whenever you want. Put it in the comments below by end of the day Friday March 8, 2024 (11:59 pm EST). 

Please look at the other comments to make sure your date isn't taken. If it is Lady will give you the next available day.

The person who is the closest without going over will get a prize or can select the charity of their choice for a donation. 

Snow gone = no more snow in the yard (it doesn't count snow in the bush).

It is that easy!

If the snow is gone before Saturday, Lady will pick a charity to give a donation to.  Looking at this weeks forecast, Lady isn't sure it will last. 

In Celcius

Good luck everyone!
