We have a winner!

I'm sure you're all holding your breath waiting to find out who won the contest. Well, I hope you're not really holding your breath, because I'm a little slow at getting the results out, and I wouldn't want to lose anyone from "lack of breath". ;-)

Actually, the snow was gone by Monday when we got back from Chicago, but I didn't get a picture taken until yesterday morning. Tuesday it rained all day, and Wednesday Courtney was here all day but wasn't feeling well, so that brought me to yesterday. It didn't matter, though, since the earliest guess was for April 10th, and that isn't even here yet. So we're okay.

And who is the lucky winner that guessed April 10th? It's Dale! Congratulations! You can pick out which two photos you want printed and let me know.

I'm so amazed (and thankful!!) that the snow melted as fast as it did... I was more inclined to go with the May 1st guess myself.

Here's our proof that it's gone (March 20th and April 8th... less than 3 weeks!):

Granted, there is a tiny bit of snow yet on the left side of the pic... BUT... what I specifically intended and said was "the snow Courtney is standing on"... and obviously that is all gone. So don't argue with me (Mark)! ;-) And look at how green that grass is... WOOHOO!

Well, that was fun. Now I'll have to think of another contest... someday.

I officially deeply dislike Dale! I was gonna guess April 10th cause it's my Daddy's birthday. But Dale got it first. stinky Dale.


Seriously, congrats Dale!

I still can not get over how high that snow was!

It's OK Becky, I just got lucky.
And you are right, sometimes I am stinky.
Mother Nature is kind of fickle,and when she changes mood, it can be real dramatic, especially here in MN.
Thank you for the congrats.
Now, Grandma G, could you remind me which pictures I get to choose from? I think it might be very appropriate for one to be of Courtney on top of "Snow Mountain".


Grandma G said...

The choice of the two 5x7 pics is from the winter ones that I've posted this past season. But if you're as sick of snow as I am and would prefer something else from the blog, that'll work. :) Just let me know which two you'd like.

Grandma G said...

Maybe stinky Dale needs some of my homemade deodorant! ;) I've been getting good reports back on it.

Becky said...

Hee hee. I try to behave, sort of. ;)
Does the handmade deo act as an anti-perspirant too?

Grandma G said...

No, it's not an anti-perspirant... just an anti-stinkyant.
