CONTEST! First Snow 2018 – Enter now on the blog!

The Question: When will we get measurable snow at Alberniweather? 

Enter your guesses before Nov 12 on the bottom of the webpage or by email at  alberniweather@gmail.com .  Please no Facebook or Twitter entries as it gets too hard to keep track! πŸ™‚ You must provide the date and time on a zero or a five (eg. Nov 23 12:45PM).  Each entry is a five minute ‘window’.  Check the rules at the bottom if you have any questions or shoot me an email or PM. This post will remain in the β€œStory of the Day” slider at the top of the page until the entry time is past at midnight November 12.

Entries close at  12AM Monday November 12. 

I will add the entries to the Calendar below as they arrive.

If we get a qualifying amount of snow  before the entry period closes, don’t worry… closest will still win, AND we will have a second contest as soon as the snow melts!

The Prize(s!)

Healthy Habits is donating a prize! Β And One Tree Health and Wellness is donating a Gift Certificate. Β So at least 2 people are going to win something! πŸ™‚

If you are a business that would like to donate a prize please get in touch! Β The more prizes, the more I’ll give out winners for ‘closest’ guesses! πŸ™‚

So when do you think it will snow? Your guesses will appear in the calendar below as you submit them. If you are on mobile or can’t see the calendar, click here.

Good Luck!

Here are the rules:

#1: You must pick a date, hour, and minute (eg. Nov 23 12:45). Minutes should be on the zeros or fives. You will end up with a 5 minute “window” so if you pick November 23 at 12:45PM, your window will be November 23 from 12:45PM to 12:50PM.

#2: Closest time wins.

#3: A winner will be declared when there is enough snow on the front lawn of Alberniweather HQ to measure 1cm with a standard ruler.

#4: If it snows before the contest entry period closes, a prize will be awarded and a 2nd contest will commence as soon as the snow melts.

#5: You need to be able to come to Port Alberni to get your prize!

#6: You must enter your guess in the comments section of this webapge (not facebook or twitter). You can also enter by email at alberniweather@gmail.com

#7: You can only pick one date, but you can change the date at any time during the entry period.

#8: Choices must be entered by Midnight November 12.

#9: If my wife (Theresa) wins she will get a prize as will the next closest contestant. πŸ™‚

#10 NEW RULE for 2018: You can guess “No Snow at All”. This will be on a First come first served basis kind of like guessing $1 on the Price is Right! :). I believe Port Alberni has never recorded snow in May so I’ll “call it” on May 1. If no snow has fallen by then, the “No Snow” winner will be declared and other prizes will go to the latest guesses.

#11: I reserve the right to add to these rules since I probably missed something. πŸ™‚

    1. Done! πŸ™‚ I put in the 2nd guess assuming that is the one you settled on. If the two guesses are meant for two different people just let me know the name of the second person and I will add it in.

  1. Hey Chris, I’d like to donate a 5 lb. box of our Certified Organic Blueberries (Frozen) to the winner- (unless I’m the winner, haha) We are short of berries or I’d donate a whole bunch more πŸ™‚
