Snow Stick Contest 2021

 We better have a snow stick contest! 

Right now there is about 7 inches of snow at the snowstick.  I took this photo a few days ago before I sent my big girl camera away.

A good rain and we could have bare ground!   I best get busy on a few woodcarvings! 

I am still working in the grey yarn and wasp nests...I am determined to use up all that grey yarn!  Very little progress has been made on the mosaic scarf or my shawl.   Yarn was ordered for a new project...I couldn't help myself.  In fact Far Guy helped me pick out the colors. 

I am working on some birthday cards as my Mom said her stash was getting low. 

Please leave me a comment with your guess of what day the snowstick will be free of snow, ice and water this year. Guesses will appear here and the guessing will end on Monday night March 1st!  Then we will wait for the snow to disappear!

  1. The first date that popped into my head was March 22, but I hope for your sake it's sooner than that.

  2. I'm guessing April 25th...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL!

  3. March 16. We have a few hardy flowers blooming...snowdrops and winter aconite.

  4. March 7 - I'm looking forward to spring, warmer weather and chats outside. I love you and miss you both! Julie Ann

  5. March 7th is my guess for the snow to be melted at the snow stick. Karen

    1. Since March 7th was already taken, I'll take March 8th.

  6. Fun! We have warm temps predicted next week. I highly doubt we won't get another snow storm before the piles are all gone, and you are north of me. So, my guess is April 3rd ??

  7. March 10th is my guess. It can really go fast though with a few warm days. Here in Kansas we went from -17F to 70+ in one week and our snow is all gone.

  8. I’ll bet on some rain and say March 12.

  9. Yep, that's about like ours too. Melt, baby, melt!! :-) ~Andrea xoxo

  10. We get out 2nd virus shot on March 12th. Let's go with that.

  11. Connie, love your contest! Wish it was today, but my guess is the Ides of March, March 15th this year. I'm ready for flowers.

  12. March 23.......look forward to you doing this each year.....something fun!!

  13. I'm guessing March 18th.

  15. My guess is March 17! More yarn, more fun. I like that Far Guy helped you pick it out.

  16. March 29th, my husband's birthday.

  17. I'm picking April 4th ... my birthday and Easter this year

  18. This year has been weird weather wise but hopefully spring will arrive sooner rather than later. I'll guess March 26th.

    Take care, stay well!

  19. I'll guess March 28th just because it's my birthday--LOL! There seems to be no rhyme or reason with the weather lately enough to make an educated guess. Could all melt away or we could have blizzards. ;)

  20. I'll take April 1, because it's Fool's Day! :-)

  21. Alright, it's snow stick time! My guess is April 2nd. That was my Dad's birthday. Enjoy your weekend!

  22. March 29th if it isn't taken already. Then move me to the first April available date. Thanks

  23. I'll pick the Ides of March, the 15th.

  24. I would say April 1st because it is my nephews birthday

  25. I'll take March 27th - my daughter's birthday ;)

  26. March 30th (if it isn't taken). I think with our crazy weather it will all melt and then we will have lots of snow in April :)

  27. I'm gonna guess March 20 My middle sons 25th birthday. 🌟🌻

  28. April 13 :) I don't normally comment but I do read your blog every day.
