December SNOMG pick ’em winner

Back in November we opened up the RVANews SNOMG pick ’em where our readers got to make predictions about monthly snowfall totals for the 2010-2011 season.

Wanna write for RVANews?

Every now and then, we like to put out a call to our readers to see if there are any undiscovered writing/reporting geniuses out there who would like to contribute to our site. As we’re in the process of planning what we’ll be up to in 2011, in only makes sense to do that again.
