I'm definitely interested in participating but I'm hopeful someone else wants to organize it.

Blizzard usually does these but I don't know what happened. I liked the contest too but I'm horrible at organizing things. Here it is anyways so lets place our bets and decide on a reasonable deadline as some of us have already seen our first snowfall.

Similar to past years, basically predict the amount of snowfall that will fall at these locations until April 15th. Members who have seen snowfall already can factor that into their estimates. The member with the minimum cumulative departure wins.

Climate ID: 615S001 (North York, On):

YOW(Ottawa, On):

YUL(Montreal, Que):

AJW(St John's, NL):

YVR(Vancouver, BC):

Good Luck! wink.gif

The amounts I've used are including snow that has fallen already. If what has fell already is not going to be included I'll change the amounts. Mainly for Ottawa being they have seen some snow already.

You can use snow that has already fallen as we've started so late this year. I'm thinking the deadline for the contest could be Dec 5th? Should give everyone some time to participate if they want.

Seems a good chance everyone could wind up underdone on YVR; GWT is in the driver's seat on that one by the looks of it.
