Introducing Jason's Snowmageddon Super Bowl Snow Prediction Contest

Let's just consider this morning's Snow Prediction Contest the Pro Bowl, the warm-up act that's fun to watch, but pales in comparison to the Super Bowl.

Introducing Jason's Snowmageddon Super Bowl Snow Prediction Contest:

In the comments below, predict the total snowfall total as of 8:00 PM, EST. (Latest NWS warning predicts the snow ends by 8:00.)

Once again, I will measure three places in my front yard and take the average. Entries are due by 5:00 PM, EST.

If I'm going to call it Jason's Snowmageddon Super Bowl Snow Prediction Contest, I better have a pretty fantastic prize, right?

How about the biggest box of goodies I've ever given away? Closest to actual total (without going over) will receive:

-The James Miracle (hardcover)
-Christmas Jars (hardcover)
-Christmas Jars Reunion (hardcover)
-Penny's Christmas Jar Miracle (hardcover)
-The Wednesday Letters (hardcover)
-Recovering Charles (hardcover)
-The Cross Gardener (advance copy)
-The Cross Gardener (audio CD's)
-A Christmas Jar for Santa (limited edition Christmas card)
-Christmas Jar bookmarks
-Christmas Jar wraps

Winner will be announced here on the blog shortly after 8:00 PM. We'll figure out a tie-breaker if we need one.

Good luck!

  1. OK--I think I should get something for going first! As of now you have an average of 19.5 inches. You are expected to get another 4-7 inches. I'm guessing by 5:00 EST that you have a total of 24.5 inches.

  28. And the reason you live in Woodstock is because of the location you based your book "The Wednesday Letters." BTW, I loved that book so much and in fact, was my first book I read of yours. I can't wait to get the book "The Cross Gardener."

    I have seen pictures of that area and I can tell you that given the chance.. I believe we could be neighbors. Bless you my friend! Carol
