All posts for the month February, 2010

Noonish Update – The NOAA stats for Buffalo and Rochester were posted around 4:30 this morning and we have another change in the snowfall lineup. Binghamton has knocked Buffalo down to the number 4 spot on the snow hill. Right now it looks like the storm is flaring up a bit around Rochester and swirling it’s way towards Buffalo.

Syracuse finally hit the 100 inch mark as of around Midnight but I think the bigger news is how Binghamton is making a move on the cities to the north. Buffalo and Rochester haven’t had their stats updated since yesterday afternoon as I’m typing and I think the new stats come out around 4 – 5 am when I’ll be napping. That said there is a good chance that by the end of today Bingo just might be moving up a spot, hmmm, or two. More to come later today! Night All!

Well finally it looks lie it’s a go for some decent snow and it’s about time. At last check I think Binghamton, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse were all under winter storm warnings for a good part of tomorrow into Friday.

From reading around the general amounts seem to be in the 8 – 12 inch range and if it stalls a couple of cities could get more. Remember I’m clueless and with that in mind it’s looking like Binghamton could may make out the best.

Good Luck and Drive Careful Everyone!

It looks like Rochester doesn’t want any part of third place this season. Every time Buffalo moves up the snow hill The Rock just pushes them back down it. I think it’s time for the cities to start doing a snow dance. I’ll be doing one more before the snow season winds down for the fact that the golden snowball contest and the National snow contest are just a little too close for comfort. GO CUSE!!!!

The snow stats for the snowiest US city pop 100,000 was just updated a little while ago. Check it out at .

Have a Super Week All!

Since the last update here and I’m sorry about the lack of them Buffalo has slid past Rochester and is now in second place. Only a couple of tenths of an inch separate the two cities and the question is will one of them start piling up the snow to challenge Syracuse?

The New York snow race is still close with just a snow storm or two separating the top 3. A couple good lake effect snow events to the west of Syracuse could also put either Buffalo or Rochester on the top. Could this be the season that Da’Cuse goes down??? Still plenty of time left to see who ends up king of the snow hill.

Have a Super Day All!

Syracuse still has a narrow snow lead here in the golden snowball contest buttt…. They just got bumped from the top spot in the national snow contest for snowiest big cities. With the last couple of storms in the Pa, Md and Dc states it was bound to happen. Syracuse and Rochester got smacked by a snowball or two to drop but Buffalo managed to hang on to their spot since the last update.

It’s still pretty quiet for most of the GSB cities although Binghamton was able to pull in some snow from the last storm. Hopefully this weekend we can add some good snow to the totals but so far the way the season has been going….. It just may be time for another snow dance and if NYCO is reading please start sucking up to the Snow God or something.

Have a great day all!

I’m still loving how close the golden snowball contest is this season. Just a foot of snow give or take a little separates the top 3 cities. For those of you who follow the contest you know that’s nothing.

Syracuse seems to add a little here and there each day but so does Rochester and Buffalo. I just wish that one of the bigger storms like the one that just hit the coast would start coming farther up north and more to the west so that we can have some fun too.

I did just update the Snowiest city in the US website at goldensnowglobe .com and things are getting really interesting for the national snow contest. Check it out at Golden Snow Globe.

Cheers and have a Great night all!!!
