Let the Rain Contest Begin!


Let the Rain Contest begin!
 
 This is a contest I have every year to give away a piece of beautiful glass from Glasspondstudio. This is the 5th year of the contest.
 
 I have chosen these earrings as the prize this year because the greens and blues remind me of the brilliant summer colors of the hill sides of Alamos, the blacks are representative of the stormy skies and heavy rain and the gold because our lightning is very dramatic, often with vivid streaks of both gold and silver.
 
To enter the contest you only need to let me know the day and the time, please include am or pm, that you think the rains will begin in Alamos, Sonora, Mexico. You can post it here or on Glasspondstudio's Facebook page:   https://www.facebook.com/Glasspondstudio, or email me, or if I see you on the street, that's great, too. If your day and time win, by being closest to the actual rain day, you then only need to send me your address and the earrings will ship right out to you. 

The month of June is filled, like every month, with festivals in Mexico. San Juan Bautista, is the Patron Saint of Water. His name actually goes on the Mexico calendar, with a specific date. That day, every year, is June 24th. It is the official day that the rains begin. Of course, they seldom begin on that day, some years it is earlier and some years, later. I will let you decide and then the anticipation of the rains begins!! 
 
Please share this and encourage friends to guess as well. It is great fun to have a lot of participants from around the world! Que le vaya bien! Linda Lou

Hey, Tancho, give me a date and time of day, and am or pm, put on your rain dancing shoes, and maybe you'll just win these. Or you can also go here https://www.etsy.com/shop/glasspondstudio?ref=em
and see what else there is.

While they've had a few good rains in the Guad/Chapala area, we still wait on the Jalisco coast. Might have to wait for the next storm coming up the coast.

I want rain tomorrow but will say the 19th (here not there) ;)

Linda Lou and Senor, Too said...

Hola! Thanks for joining in! Yes, Jacqui, it's time again and I have you down!

Ralph and Chris, got it!

Christine, you have to also pick a time and specify am or pm. I took the liberty of picking for you and picked the time you entered your post so you're in for 6-30,5:39pm.

Sparks, took some liberty with you as well and even though you said here (as in your place) and there (as in my place) I put you down for the 19th for 'ALAMOS' and used your blog post time as well which was 7:07am.

PS: Happy Birthday early Ralph and Chris!

Easy, easy stuff.
Weather update: very very breezy this morning!!!! 6/6/2013 LL

Hola Mr. Gill, I have you down, an early morning storm would be nice. I am not sure about being prepared for the rain, (another issue), but yes, I'll do a construction update soon.
