snow melt contest!

Third year, can you believe it?

Here’s the bottom line. Guess when this giant pile of snow at work will be all gone and I’ll send you something. Two winners, one random and one who guesses most closely when it’ll be gone.

The pile this year:
snowpile2010march02 snowpile2010march02 (2) snowpile2010march02 (3)

Here’s the details.

Comment in this post by Monday, March 15, 5 pm eastern time (we switch to daylight savings time the day before) when you think this pile of snow will be totally gone, so that there’s not even a patch of ice left on the ground. This post. Leave a date.

I will draw a random winner that evening.

And then we wait and wait and wait until the pile is gone.

Hints:

Here was the pile in December.

Here is the post about last year’s winner.

Here is last year’s pile.

And here is the post about the winner the year prior (a different pile).

We didn’t get as much snow this year as last, and it seems to be warmer earlier… but one never knows around here!

The prizes:
needle cases 071
For the random drawing, the winner can choose one of these needle cases. Here’s some inside looks at a few of them,
needle cases 009 needle cases 016 needle cases 028
And here are some that have stuff in them.

For the winner of the melt date, maybe one of these, maybe something fibery. The Fiber Frolic usually happens between the contest announcement and the melt date, so you never know…

If a non fiber person wins, well, we can talk! Maybe some good coffee from my favorite roaster.

    Oh jeez… I always suck at guessing these things. Um… we’ve got less snow… it’s been relatively warm the past week… May 24th.

    I’m going to say June 13. Hopefully it will be a lot earlier, but I think we’re being lulled into thinking that spring is actually here to stay.

    My guess is a very optimistic April 11th. If we can’t have a lot of snow.. I don’t want any :)
