Guess ice-out contest

An annual tradition at my house is to guess the date that the lake will break free from its long winter nap. This year I thought I'd invite everyone to join for a chance to win a mystery prize.  (It involves a book.)

Leave a comment with your best guess of date and time for ice-out.  Good luck!



ALSO: happiness is... finding your book listed in THE BIGGEST HITS OF THE YEAR  in Trends in MG at the Write Angle!

I love this! In Michigan, my husband and I would always guess when the huge piles of parking lot "snert" (snow and dirt) would finally melt.

That's fun! Okay - I'll say April 26th at noon :)

Glad you enjoyed the post!

Hmmm....and I thought my family's guess-the-new-baby's-day-of-arrival was tricky. :) I'll guess April 21, morning. Because I'm an optimist. :)

Congrats on the "Best Book" news, Terry! I know next to nothing about ice, but I'll go with April 20th at 5 p.m.

I haven't a clue so I'll just say May 1 because that's my nephew's birthday.

Congratulations on the Biggest Hits list!

That's awesome news. I'll take a wild guess at May 7th.

I'm guessing May 8 for reasons I'm not going to divulge!
For your sake, I hope it's sooner. That's a long cold spell you've got going.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Oops. You said time, too. Okay then 9 a.m.

Great idea for a contest! Hmm, okay, I'll guess... since it's so cold and doesn't seem to be getting any warmer... 18 May. At about 5 pm.
