As if Colorado residents don’t have enough snow to dig out from, one resident is offering more for a price on eBay.
Starting bids were holding steady Friday at 99 cents for snow from “Blizzard I and Blizzard II” being offered by Mary Walker.
She and husband, Jim, got the idea for selling snow after shoveling mounds from two storms a week apart that together dumped more than 4 feet along the Front Range.
“I figured eBay has ghosts and all sorts of weird stuff, so why not snow?” said Walker, who teaches business workshops on employee communications.
Only 10 offerings of snow are available and the proceeds are earmarked for a used snowblower for Jim or a pair of shovels.
She says she doesn’t really expect to find a buyer for their blizzard overstock.
“We just wanted to just give some folks a laugh,” she said.
The Loveland couple who sold three snowballs on eBay for $200 are getting a free trip to the East Coast so they can hand-deliver the snow.
A Connecticut firefighter placed the winning bid for the three snowballs and the Walker’s were faced with trying to ship the snowballs in a way they wouldn’t melt. They had planned to use dry ice.
Now, Frontier Airlines will fly them to New York City for free. That’s just an hour south of Milford, Conn., where Hansen lives with his family.
