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

Enter your guesses before Nov 1 in the comments ( in the comments of the webpage so far) only please (no Facebook or Twitter entries as it gets too confusing! :)).  Or by email at alberniweather@gmail.com .  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!  This post will ‘stick’ on the top of the page until the entry time is done.

Entries close at  12AM Tuesday November 1.

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

You can check out the Accuweather Winter 2016 Forecast for hints or check the September Summary and Outlook too.

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.

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: You have 2 weeks to make your choices, 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. UHOH Maurice, that time is taken! I have shifted yours to the 4:50-4:55 slot. Or you can reply with another selection. Check the calendar above to see if there is a conflict.

  1. Sorry, cancel my first guess please – I didn’t know 2 others were within 30 minutes of mine.
    My new guess: November 29 at 7:30 a.m.
