Guessing is now CLOSED.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

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

UPDATE! We’ve Added a prize from Boomerangs! A $25 Gift Certificate. 🙂

Enter your guesses before Nov 1 on the blog in the discussion thread at the bottom of the page or by email at  alberniweather@gmail.com . Please no Facebook or Twitter entries as it gets too hard to keep track! 🙂 You just need to 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 ‘stick’ on the top of the page until the entry time is done.

Entries close at  12AM Wednesday November 1.

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

You can check out the Accuweather Winter 2017 Forecast for hints.

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!)

1st Prize: A Gift Package from Kari at Healthy Habits.

2nd Prize: A $25 Gift Certificate from Darren at Boomerangs Café!

If any other businesses would like to donate prizes for 2nd and 3rd closest let me know 🙂

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 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 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 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: Choices must be entered by Midnight November 1.

#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. Hi 🙂 Did you get my entry? It’s difficult to tell what’s going on from this end, definitely some kind of glitch 😉 and then I reposted because I couldn’t see my original post, and I accidentally put 18 instead of 17 🙄 fat fingered the keyboard again lol 😂
