REMINDER: The Deadline for Entries is Monday 6AM. That is also the earliest time you can guess. If you have already guessed and want to change your mind, that’s OK as long as you do it before 6AM Monday. The contest was in the paper today! :+) Cool stuff. Hope everyone has fun. And btw. It’s CHILLY OUT THERE! 🙂
It’s time to rev-up the snow contest! Pick your date and time in the comments of this post only.
A prize will be announced in a little while once I scrounge one up. 🙂
When will we get the first measureable amount of snow on the ground at Alberniweather Headquarters.
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! (questions? firstname.lastname@example.org)
Here are the rules:
#1: You must pick a date, hour, and minute on a zero (eg. December 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 only get one choice. But see #7 for changing your mind.
#5: You have 1 week to make your choices, choices must be entered by 6AM Monday, November 12, 2012..
#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: 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.
