Hey Everyone! The Annual CVG Snowfall Contest is back! The rules are similar to past years. Please submit your guess for the amount of snowfall that CVG will receive between November 1st and March 31st. As a tie breaker question: When will CVG see its first official snowfall accumulation of at least 0.1" or more? This year, a TRACE will NOT count as it has in the past. This could make your tie breaker guess, a little more difficult. :devil: Verification will be from the ILN Climate Report for CVG.

Below as an example of how your guess should be submitted:

Total CVG Snowfall from 11/1/17 - 3/31/18: 27.3"
When Will the First Official Snow Accumulation Occur at CVG? November 28th

Remember, snowfall amounts of 0.1" or more has to be recorded at CVG for this to count. A TRACE does not count.

Your guess must be posted in this thread by Monday October 30, 2017 at 12am. You may edit your post until then also. Have fun and good luck! :D

Les since I am still dealing with the devastating loss in the 90 degree contest I am going to post early so I can at least make folks laugh somewhat. I had to go into my secret formula to get a snowfall amount and 1st snowfall.

I believe the 1st snowfall will be on Nov 17th.

My final total for the year is 42.4 inches.

Don't forget folks, you have until Monday October 30th at midnight to get your guesses in. Waiting until Halloween would put you past the deadline. So get your guesses in ASAP please, thank you! So far, the responses have been tremendous and level of participation has been fantastic! I am very pleased. :D

One thing I have learned about these type of contests is if you are not sure what to guess the best thing you can do is take an average of what everybody else has guessed and that should put you in the ball park. so with that being said mine are...
First snow: Nov 24
Total snow : 26.5"
