The 1-2cm of snow  on Friday November 28 was just enough to declare Teresa Pavin the winner of the snow contest!  Yay Teresa! You have won a fabulous gift package from Healthy Habits!

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

Enter your guesses in the comments of this post only or by email at alberniweather@gmail.com check the rules at the bottom so you know what you need to give me for your guess to be valid!

Entries are open until 8PM Saturday November 22nd.

Because I started the contest later than usual, if it snows 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

Kari at Healthy Habits has once again donated a fabulous gift package for the lucky winner!  Thanks Kari! 🙂

If any other businesses would like to donate prizes we could do a 2nd and 3rd closest too? Just putting it out there. 🙂

So when do you think it will snow? Your guesses will appear in the calendar below as you submit them.

Good Luck!

Here are the rules:

#1: You must pick a date, hour, and minute (eg. Nov 3 12:45). Minutes should be on the zeros or fives. You will end up with a 5 minute “window” (eg. Nov 3 12:45-12:50).

#2: Closest time wins.

#3: A winner will be chosen when there is enough snow on the front lawn of Alberniweather HQ to measure 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 post or 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: You have 1 week to make your choices, choices must be entered by 8PM November 22, 2014.

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

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

  1. I think December is going to remain mild, so I’m gonna go with January 10th, my wife’s Birthday, at 6:00 am.

  2. December 25th at 3:45 a.m. (just in time for the Fat Man to drop off the prezzies) and gone by December 26th at 3:45 a.m.

  3. Somehow I missed the contest altogether, but just for fun, knowing that I cannot win because I’m too late to enter (and maybe have a bias which disqualifies me???), I pick 10pm Friday November 28th 🙂

    1. Ha! Well, fair is fair. The entry period is now closed. However, I will put your guess in the calendar… what is your ‘bias’ telling you that makes you so sure… THAT is what we all want to know! 😀
