Snow Melting Contest

Contest is closed.
Acuz I have nefur had a contest, Momma said I could host one. I thoughted and thoughted and then asided to have a snow melting contest, cuz we have so much in the Big Piney Woods. The pile of snow for the contest will be the snow next to the garage, where the metal monsters and snow eating monster sleeps. (behind me) You can see the pile that will be the contest pile, to my right, and Momma took a picher Monday, which is at the bottom of this post. This post is the last for us for this week, so lotsa cats can enter.

Here are the rules:

1. Guess the month/day the snow is completely gone, not even an ice patch left.
2. Post your guess in the comment section of this post. Only cat bloggers, please.
3. The cat getting closest, without going over, wins.
4. If someone has guessed your date, you can't use it. Choose another.
5. Contest is open from right now, and closes Sunday, Feb. 3 . at 6:00 PM PST. At that time, Momma will make a list of the entrants, and guesses, and post them on Monday, Feb. 4.
6. One guess only, per cat. If you have more than one cat, each can enter, but make shure they sign their name.

Hint: Momma says the snow can melt real fast, if a south wind comes up or if it rains or gets really warm. We are also due for another week of snow, so that pile will probably get taller. We are getting ANOTHER storm right now, with a bigger one on Thursday. Hope that helps! Momma will take weekly pichers and post them on Monday.

The winner will be announced the day after the snow is gone.

Taken Monday morning, Jan. 28th.

I am going to attempt to make a list, to help you pick dates that aren't used. This list isn't complete, as new guesses are made before I can add them, so please check prior comments. Here is the list I have, so far: Please correct me if you see an error ..... Of course, prizes will be sent to the winning cat.......CalicoMom Toni
