Marching On

The big storm missed us.  What was supposed to be 18 plus inches of snow turned into less than an inch.  I guess South Dakota and Iowa got our share of moisture.
Here is the snow stick.  It measures 9 inches.

We will have a snow stick contest.  Leave your guess. What day will the snow stick be free of snow? I have a green Smoky Bear ruler someplace..when it is free of snow by the stick I will declare a winner.   The snow stick is in a different spot this year.  I will leave the guessing open until March 03 Midnight, at that time I will add all the guesses to the bottom of this post.  Last year the snow left the snow stick on April 8th.

Ahh..what would the winner like?  How about a carving?  A Far Side original?  Yes I am sure I can come up with a few little bark houses..I have several in the works at the moment.  It will give me an incentive to finish them up:)

  1. Here I thought you were buried in snow. You can never trust a weatherman to get a prediction correct. Hopefully you won't get much more snow this winter. My snow stick guess is March 21.

  2. My guess is March 29th. My hubby's birthday - I would love to give him one of your bark houses as a gift.

  3. i couldn't even begin to guess. Most of the snow here in Southeastern WI is gone. And to top that I have seen six robins already plus the red-winged blackbirds have returned. Crazy winter!!!

  4. I'm going to guess it'll be gone by March 18th. Ours is only about 3 inches deep and they're calling for a Chinook on the weekend so maybe this will be it for us although I really doubt it.

  5. I'm thinking March 21st. Heard rumors from our neighbors that there is 20+ inches of new snowfall at our cottage. Be thankful it missed you guys.

  7. Ah, beware the Ides of March, for surely the grass will show.
    The sun will be out, the birdies will sing and the grass will begin to grow.
    The bees will buzz, the flies will hum and it will be time to mow!
    But Mother Nature is a fickle one, and will later make it snow!

    So....I do want a carving!! I crave a carving!
    My guess - March 15!

  8. March 26th will be a great day for you to go green. I bet I am way off but I feel like gambling today. We are going to lose our snow again this week or next.

  9. I wondered it you had your Snow Stick planted this winter. My guess is April 15th because I think you're going to get at least two more storms with measurable snow.

  17. So Dirt is saying earlier than last year but not by much, he figures you need to get some more snow in before it starts goin' away, (is a law of averages fellow) And so we will say April 2. At first he said "by June" but I wouldn't want to say that out loud so as to not distress you.
