Snow Bets

It's time to make the traditional snow bet! Guess when the first snow falls and actually sticks! The traditional judging point has been my parents deck, but since everyone is old and grown and scattered about our lovely island, just guess when it will stick at your house. You'll have to be honest! ha ha. If you are a winner, be sure to say so!

My bet is Monday November 6th.

I am sticking to the tradition of it being our deck!

gpa john said...

I'll make my bet after I have more thoroughly analyzed the weather patterns...

Becky said...

I will bet for Thursday, November 16. It does seem like the judging place should be your folks' deck, it wouldn't be quite the same otherwise. What do you think? Then they'll have to be honest with all the folks scattered far and wide!

Sunday Nov 5th

My guess is November 20th on your parents deck......the 19th on ours :)

Jeffrey Smith said...

Somebody is going to have to tell me if I get this right. I'm going with December 25th. :-)

Derek Linder said...

I will guess December 9th...but I want pictures to prove it, whatever day it is ;)

Jeremy & Olivia said...

The snow has stuck at our house since last Monday; do we win?? ;)

gpa john said...

Monday, November 6th on OUR deck.

gpa john said...

Oops! I see Caren and I are thinking alike. I'll make it November 7th.

Enger Adventures said...

I will guess November 18th.

Matthew said...

Today. November 5.

beth said...

I am going with December 10th. :)

gp Cooke said...

It snowed a little last night. Do I win?

Becky said...

Did last night's snow stick to the deck? Or to anything?

gp Cooke said...

It stuck to the ground at the lookout

Matt Caren Meadow & Logan said...

Well, it stuck to my car, and our railing had a thin layer of slush on it..does that count? Actually I think it came after midnight, so my guess was wrong anyway, and it DIDN'T stick to my parents deck. Oh well.

Today is Nov. 8th and there's still no snow on our deck. I'm guessing Nov.10th. We'll stay up til midnight on the 9th to rightly judge between my bet and Derek's. Thanks for posting this, Caren .. our calendar looked anemic without the usual snow bet entries!

Maybe you should start a baby bet for the date of Kirsten & Chris's baby. If someone correctly guesses the first day of snow AND the baby's birth date the prize could be the baby!

Janet, that is one bet I will not be entering into.....unless the prize changes :)

It's official! The snow stuck on the John's deck at 6pm today, November 11! No one won unless we go by the rule that the closest guesser wins. If that rule holds, it would be Janet (gmajohn). I even took a picture and sent it to Christy, since Caren, Matthew and the kids are visiting her this weekend. By the way, Ken and Bonnie were witnesess to the event.
