COMPETITION + PRIZE: How long will the snow pile last!


SMU

Recommended Posts

Ok In the spirit of a little fun I have piled up the snow in the garden ( whats left ) for a competition.

PRIZE: A nominal beer ( or soft drink token ) of £2.50 via PAYPAL.

Rules-

Entry Closes Tomorrow at 07:00 AM.

All you need to post is the date & time ( incase dates clash ) where the snow mound will be gone & replaced by a full cover of grass...

Obviously things to consider-

Its now a plie of hard ice- mound was done Sunday.

Weather till Friday looks like being very cold with somepossible very low overnight minima- cementing it all together.

Milder weather lands at the weekend...

Heres the offending pile:
