So…I’m having a contest to see who can guess when the ice on Lake Champlain will break up in front of my house. As you can see, it’s still frozen. Lovely and sparkly this morning…but still mighty cold and solid.
To enter the contest, just leave a comment with the date and time you think the ice will go out. (We’ll define that as the day/time that there are many floating chunks of ice instead of one big slab of ice between my house and the island, okay?) Whoever is closest wins one of my last ARCs of MARTY MCGUIRE, my new chapter book series with Scholastic coming May 1st.
If the ice goes out while we’re all sleeping here or otherwise not available or paying attention, then I’ll have a drawing among all the entries that were close.
I’d posted this contact as a quick mention before, so if you’ve already guessed, don’t worry – you’re all set and I have your date/time recorded! If you haven’t guessed yet…the deadline is TUESDAY, MARCH 29 at 7pm EST. I’ll post ice/weather updates after that so you can root for warm temperatures and windy days near the time of your guess. Enter, okay? It’ll be fun!
