Yes, that’s right I’m having a “How long will it take to melt?” contest!
See this dirty, grimy pile of snow?
The truck is an S-10 pickup truck if that gives you a perspective on the size. This pile, located outside of the building I work in is at least 10 – 12 feet shorter than it initially was plus it stretched to the light pole.
The ultimate question is…how many Northern Illinois Spring days will it take to melt it completely? The last few days have been nice and sunny with temps in the 50’s but it still dips down to below freezing at night. And you never know, we could even have more snow yet which would add to it or days of warm rain that would melt it faster.
Are you willing to take a guess? There just might be a prize involved for the winner. Of course, we don’t have a correct answer yet. We won’t until the pile is melted. But that’s okay because I haven’t thought of a prize yet either!
So, come on and play along, will you? To enter, just leave a comment with the date that you think the pile will be totally gone. It’s that simple!
Ready, set, go!
