    Colorado Woman Selling Snow on eBay

    LOVELAND, Colo. - 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.

    Except no one is bidding on it. there's not even a bid on the much rarer yellow snow from the blizzard.
