The When When Contest is ON!

This picture was taken Saturday morning. We got about 2" of snow overnight. The sun came out, and a lot of it melted, but we are to get More Snow Saturday night and Sunday morning. I'll update this post with pictures later.


The big question is.... "When will the snow MELT?" That's what I want to know.

When will it be ALL GONE?

Would you like to guess? The When When Contest is ON again this year. The cat, woofie or bun who guesses the date when there is NO MORE SNOW when Mom looks out this window each day will get a prize. (Temptaytions and other goodies, you know, fun stuff like that! Mom will also include a small box of the famous Evil Little Chocolates for your mom.)

Every day Mom will get up and take a picture of this same view and post it on my blog. On the day she wakes up and THERE IS NO SNOW ANYWHERE IN THE PICTURE will be THE DAY. If you guess the EXACT day, you will get a prize. If NOBODY guesses the EXACT DAY, the cat who guessed the day CLOSEST TO the day, but not AFTER the day, will get the prize.

Here are the rules:
1. Each cat, woofie or bun gets ONE GUESS EACH.
2. Guesses must be in the comments of THIS POST.
3. The deadline for entries is Midnight Tuesday February 19, 2013. (So when it isn't Tuesday anywhere in the world, the voting will be over.)
4. You have to have a blog, or leave some way for us to get in touch with you, so we have to know who you are. If you have a blog, you're good to go.
5. It's my blog, so if I wanna change the rules, I can.

Now for some useful information.
1. The houses across the street face East. So the snow in their front yards will melt first. Duh.
2. Sun melts the snow.
3. Rain melts it faster.
4. The average high temperature for March in New Hampster is 44F
5. The average low temperature for March in New Hampster is 18F
6. It snows in April. So, guess accordingly.
7. *****The contest ends when there is NO SNOW on the ground in the picture. If it snows the next day, oh well, that's New England weather for you!*****

In 2008, the winning date was April 12.
In 2009, the winning date was April 3.
In 2010, there wasn't enough snow to have the contest.
In 2011, the winning date was April 11.
In 2012, there was no snow. No snow, no contest.

When will the snow be gone in 2013? You tell me.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We heard before ChrissyMouse that New England was gonna have a harder colder than average Winter, so our guesses are:

Ayla, April 13
Iza, April 14
Marley, April 15

We will be glad ta be WAY wrong iffen that means you have a easier shorter Winter, of course... TBT reminds us that he used ta live up there as a kitten, and remembers how miserable it got sometimes.
