Wow. That’s what went through my mind two weeks ago when the #somsnow15 contest went live. I imagined some people would really like it, but the way you responded blew me away. It’s clear that in this most miserable of winters we were all desperately seeking a little fun.
The deadline to enter #somsnow15 was Sunday, March 1 at midnight and this week I organized all the guesses so we can keep track of who’s still in the running for the awesome prizes (a $25 Union Square Donuts gift card, Somerville Beat stickers and, most important, bragging rights). I’ll update the spreadsheet every week, crossing off the dates that have passed until it’s time to announce the winner.
I also snapped some new photos of the pile in the last two weeks so you can see its current status. It’s definitely melted a bit, but it’s also gotten a lot wider. And, of course, it’s snowed a couple of times again. I’m going to keep taking and posting photos along the way so you can monitor the pile right along with me.
You can keep track of everything contest-related on the #somsnow15 page. Thanks so much to everyone who entered–your ability to play along in the face of what’s been a truly terrible winter made me smile and warmed my heart. It made me love our community even more than I already do–Somerville spirit all the way.
And now, we wait. I’m so excited to find out whose guess is correct and crown them the winner of #somsnow15. For now, think spring.
