It’s practically an institution! It’s Snow Contest time…. here are the rules:

When will we get measurable snow at the Alberniweather doorstep (6th and Redford)!?

Here are the rules:

#1: You must pick a date, hour, and minute (eg. July 3 12:45).

#2: Closest time wins.

#3: You must enter your guess in the comments section of this post.

#4: You can only pick once, so choose carefully.

#5: There will be a prize to the winner… to be announced at the time (because it’s more fun when you don’t know!) Last year was a fabulous Canadian Tire snow shovel.

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

#7: Only snow produced by actual weather is counted. (no confetti, ice shavings, or snow machines or other artificial methods:D)

#8: I reserve the right to add to these rules since I probably missed something. 🙂

#9: Guesses must be submitted by Midnight, 0:00PST the day of your guess. (ie. No guesses on the day of)
……….

So that’s it. Start picking! As your guesses start to come in I will put them on a Google Calendar so that you can see them all.

Remember, snow at the lake doesn’t necessarily mean snow in town!

Good Luck!
