    Default The Official 2019 Laurium Glacier Meltdown Contest

    It's time!

    For those that are unfamiliar with how this goes, the first person to guess the correct date for the melting of the huge snowdrift outside of Laurium (The Laurium Glacier) will win a Keweenaw Kamo T-shirt of their choice. Anyone else guessing the correct date, but not being first, will receive a ThinkSnow Sticker.

    Only the date need be posted, as I cannot watch it closely enough to use time.

    Here is a picture of the "Glacier". Its a monster this season!

    I went by it this week and it was still hanging in there. I will be sure to post a pic in the next journal (not sure if that will be tonight or not).

    I guess I forgot to officially close the contest to guessing, but the last guess was made April 8th, so no issues there.

    Please note that any future guesses do not count.

    Any recent pictures. As the weather seems to stay on the colder side it looks like it will be late this year.

    Funny you should ask. I got a picture of it this morning. Still hanging in there. Looks to make it to June. Not sure how deep into June!

    Haha! Yep, it's been Rona'd. Because of our move, I was going to have to enlist Nora to do the watching to and from work, but schools are out for the year and that make's it very difficult to keep tabs on it. Sorry!

    well NOT sure if this would be a possible option, or maybe fin one like it
    but a SKI resort near me runs a live feed cam, and they have snow left
    can use something like this as a GAME of sort to GUESS when the snow will be gone??
    There are lots of web cams all over too, so, , maybe pick one and have a contest on things?

    I know the cams at MT Rainer off the John Dee web site map, holds snow LATE late into summer, for a really LONG guess game!


    or here is my PA< snow, all FAKE snow mostly, as never had any real snow here this yr LOL
    but again, could be a way to have a contest, and wee all can check on things daily if wanted!
    Food for thought!

    That is an interesting thought. I am just torn between keeping it to the Laurium Glacier and picking a different area. Will think about it.
