Description

Snow

So far, we've got over a foot, and it's still coming down. We really don't need more than a few inches here, so we're making the rest available to the highest bidder.

Due to the perishable nature of snow, and because not even 4WD vehicles are having much luck on our local roads, the winning bidder must make arrangements for pickup. This snow doesn't pack very well, so you'll have to make your own packing arrangements as well.

Note that I'm only offering the excess snow from our own property. If you need it, I may be able to arrange for you to get more.

I'll accept cash or money order for payment. If you clear a path from Interstate 40 to my house, I'll discount your winning bid, charging only an amount equivalent to the eBay fee for the closing bid.

Take our snow, please...

In response to some of your questions:

Thanks for all the email! Remember, folks, this is a three-day auction -- don't miss out!

For those of you still sitting on the fence, here are some more pictures:


A wide view showing our selection.*


A closer view showing the quality of our product.*


A view reflecting our perspective on the snow.* (mmph! mmph!)


Only the finest snow lets you take full advantage of backlighting.*

* House, trees, fire plug, lights and shrubbery not included. Offer void where prohibited by Canadian customs.

It appears that outgoing mail from my ISP isn't getting out, so here are answers to some of the latest round of questions:

Two last pictures:

We've been told any number of times not to leave our cars parked on the shoulder of the road, since they'll interfere with the (still largely hypothetical) snow plows. This fine citizen carefully followed this advice by parking in the middle of the road.

One last shot of the road out from our house.

Thanks for all the mail, everyone!


On 01/28/00 at 07:33:48 PST, seller added the following information:

Due to some uncertainties about our homeowners' association regulations, I'm afraid I have to withdraw this auction. However, I'm happy to announce that I (and many of my neighbors) will make this snow available free of charge to anyone who'd like to come and collect it -- first come, first served!

Stay tuned for more news and photos, including local media coverage of the Snow Clearance! (Yeesh...)
