Maybe VAST can buy some and get it shipped here? HCS group buy? :smilielol:

Colorado woman selling snow on eBay

Call it a winter sale. Jim and Mary Walker are selling snow on eBay. Starting bids were holding steady Friday at 99 cents for samples from "Blizzard I and Blizzard II."

The Walkers 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 Mary Walker, who teaches business workshops on employee communications.

How much snow 99 cents or whatever the winning bid gets depends. Walker's auction notice suggests avoiding shipping and handling charges by stopping by their home and picking it up — in a dump truck.

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.

Here is the link to the ebay auction

Very funny description:

We've had so much fun with this and heard from so many super people that we've decided to run the auction ONE more time! We don't want to disappoint anyone who's just hearing about it. But don't be fooled! We've had copycats! Just to reassure you...this is the original! Of course, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! Later this week we'll be offering a pdf offering of all the questions and answers from Auction 1...sort of the Rest of the Genuine Colorado Snow Story. Some of you are absolutely hysterical. Check back!

1 MORE TIME!
END OF 2006 SNOW! We’re overstocked! All of it must go!
I’ve been authorized by my husband to begin the sell off ALL of our inventory! He’s tired of shoveling the stuff from place to place. It’s a winter blow out!
Here’s your chance to own genuine Colorado snow from Blizzard I and Blizzard II released in December 2006. (Blue spruce not included.) This is not the same boring powder snow you see in the ski areas…this is snow from the notoriously dry Front Range of Colorado. We NEVER get this much snow…ask any really old Colorado native.

What a memento! Especially for those of you who spent time in posh luxury at Denver’s weather-proof International Airport. Think of the stories you’ll be able to tell your children and grandchildren! Or those of you .deprived in places like Hawaii? Why should Alaska and Colorado have all the fun? You can have a piece of prime snow fall!

You can personally pick up your snow any time this week to avoid shipping and handling charges. Bring a dump truck and your own shovels. Otherwise, your snow will arrive in some sort of leak proof container…a jar? (We promise no yellow snow!) Sorry, positively no refunds. Quantities vary.

Proceeds of this auction will go towards a used snowblower for hubby…or a pair of shovels for the two of us.

Shipping and handling depends on your location and can be figured out at the bottom of the page. I accept checks, money orders and PayPal, although I hold items until checks clear.

NOTE: All of my items are previously owned unless they say new in the description. They come from auctions, thrift stores or are on consignment. I do not sell damaged items, but I do not clean or dry clean. I leave that up to you. Everything is sold "as is

On Jan-01-07 at 16:43:05 PST, seller added the following information:
Just to be clear...we can ship your snow 1 of 3 ways. 1) For the shipping stated in the auction we'll put snow in a leakproof container (jar or zip lock bag) and ship it in a box. Yes, it will melt. You'll have to refreeze it and shave it to return it to it's natural state. 2) To keep it frozen we need to use dry ice and a foam cooler and ship it overnight fedx. Probably a gallon zip lock bag of snow. That will be a lot more, but you'll get snow. 3) You can come get it...
