It was refund day for some lucky customers of a northwest Indiana jeweler.Engstrom Jewelers of Valparaiso, Indiana ran a promotion for jewelry purchased between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. They promised refunds to customers if more than four inches of snow fell on the first day of the year. Four-point-nine inches fell on January 1.

On Friday, customers started picking up their refund checks.

This was the third year of the promotion, but the first time the jeweler has had to pay up.
