It’s time to rev-up the snow contest! Pick your date and time in the comments of this post only and you might win a gift pack of Mighty Leaf Tea and chocolate from Healthy Habits at the Harbour Quay.

Update: I have added a new rule (#7) and updated rules #1 and #5

We’re a couple weeks earlier than normal for this contest… hmmm. I wonder if that means anything! 🙂

When will we get the first measureable amount of snow on the ground at Alberniweather Headquarters (Central Port near the Salvation Army).

Here are some resources to help you make your decision. Note that *none* of these resources actually predict snow on the ground, only trends in temperature and possible precipitation. We all know how different our micro-climate can be compared to other parts of the Island or BC, so keep that in mind. 🙂

GOOD LUCK!

    Here are the rules:

    #1: You must pick a date, hour, and minute on a zero (eg. July 3 12:40). The date you choose must be after the closing date of the choosing period (see Rule #5).

    #2: Closest time wins.

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

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

    #5: You have 1 week to make your choices, choices must be entered by 6AM Monday, October 31, 2011.. The contest will be “live” after 6AM on October 31st.

    #6: A measureable amount is generally when the snow completely covers the ground with no gaps and registers at least 1cm on a standard ruler or tape measure. Snow must be measured on the ground on grass, rather than a deck, or sidewalk or road.

    #7 (NEW RULE): You can change your guess at anytime before the end of the guessing period. I will use the last guess posted from you in the comments.

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

    ……….

    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.

    Good Luck!
