Laramie, Wyoming - Just for Fun

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Live in Laramie Real Estate, Laramie, Wyoming WY #12296

You know the winter doldrums have hit when a person can find inspiration in nearly anything!  Today's inspiration - the basketball stuck on our roof since the first snow fall in the middle of November.  The challenge?! ... Can you guess on which day just enough snow will melt and allow it to roll off the roof? 

Our roof on January 29, 2011 

Basketball on Roof

 

Will there be a BIG prize?  No.... I'm afraid not.  But I will announce the winner, loud and clear, here in my Active Rain Blog.  C'mon what could be better than that?!   (tongue in cheek...)

***UPDATE*** 

Yesterday, March 5, 2011, the ball rolled off the roof!  Yippee!  I wonder if that means that spring is officially on its way......

Anyway, the person who guessesd the closest was  Carey Valentine  who guessed March 17th! 

Sorry I don't have anything else to offer but a big Wyoming - YEE HAW! Way to go Cary!

Hello Brenda, I was born and raised in the south and do not know to much about the cold and the snow. But I think this will be fun so I am going to guess. How Feb 14.

Brenda, Since I went to school in Laramie, I think it will be way after Feb.  But you never know, if you get Chinook winds it could be anytime.  But I will guess April 20.

I can tell you that if that basketball were on my roof, it would be mid-April. But I've got 3 feet of snow up there now... So I'll go with March 20 for you!

Hi Gary and Tim- I was hoping it would be sooner since it was so nice yesterday!  (40 degrees) but looks like we are in for a cold front so I'm afraid it could be stuck up there until March or April.  Boo Hoo....

Hi Brenda - Are you sure that basket ball will roll off and not shatter after being so cold for so long?  I have lived in the snow and lived in the rain.  Prefer the rain as it does not have to be shoveled.  Thanks for the blog and the picture.

p.s. We have almost made the 31 days, good job.

Hi Brenda, I really wouldn't know, but when I lived in Massachusetts, snow stayed around until well into March and April.  I guess there's a kid in the neighborhood who really is looking forward to getting his ball back!
