    If you are following the progress of the snow bank, the official date of the snow pile melting was Sunday, April 13! We had one guess for that day and it was Malcolm Graham. Congratulations to Malcolm for winning a $20 gift certificate to our store.

    Guesses ranged from February 28 all the way through June 28 and April 15 was the most popular day with 10 guesses.
