SCN Crazy Snowfall Picture Contest Rules

It looks like good old fashioned winter in Seward, Alaska has returned after a three-year hiatus. This past week has leaned toward the extreme side of snowfall in a short period of time.  The snow piles at the home office of Seward City News are up to the second story windows and we are almost out of room to pile more (a shoutout to Steve Pautz of Seward Bobcat Service for keeping our driveway clear). With this in mind, we’d like to see how everyone else survived this latest “flurry”, so a picture contest is in order.  If you have extreme snowfall pictures you would like to submit, we’d like to see them and post the best ones on SCN.

The winning image will be judged by the “Wow” factor that illustrates the magnitude of how much snow we got this week, and the hardiness of Seward and Moose Pass residents.   If you woke up and found your car missing (buried), had to dig a tunnel to your front door,  or had a catastrophic failure of a structure on your property, we want to see it. These are not the limits though, almost anything that demonstrates the severity of this week’s snowfall will be considered.
