    1. sorry about that! just realized half the post didn’t come through! Yes! Rule #1:

      You must pick a date, hour, and minute (eg. July 3 12:45). Minutes should be on the fives.

      Happy guessing! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Cassandra! I would highly recommend picking a date after this weekend! The guessing time doesn’t close until next week so it’s safe to say there should not be any snow before then πŸ™‚ That said, if it snowed on my birthday, I’d be pretty happy! πŸ˜€

    1. Hi Danneau! Sorry your guess won’t be entered into the official contest calendar because it’s after the entry deadline. Though I suspect you fall under rule #8 anyway. But good luck anyway! πŸ™‚

      1. ooops. I did the same. sorry did not read correctly about the deadline, was too excited about the contest lol. Sorry about that. Linda
