All posts for the month March, 2010

It looks like the Robins are starting to come back into town. This morning was the first one that I have seen. Normally I will see a few when I first see them but only one this time. It looks like he/she has the whole neighborhood to itself for the time being. Has anyone else been seeing them?

Nothing to talk about as far as snow goes. When I updated the National contest earlier in the week only a handful of cities had snow to add to their totals. This week has been awesome weather wise and I finally got the car cleaned out. Yup, took the camping stuff out from last year including tent, sleeping bags and cooler. I also took out the golf clubs, dusted them off but put them back into the car. My son called from the golf course today but I couldn’t get out. Too busy watching the NCAA Tourney.

CONGRATS to CORNELL BIG RED – Wooo Hooo

Syracuse plays tonight and after the tough start the Big East teams had yesterday so far so good today with Pitt and West Virginia winning big. Yesterday the BE went 1-3 and most likely killed one of my brackets. I’m still OK on 2 others I played. All for fun and just matchsticks as the prize of course 😉 The bracket that got killed I made it a big east final four with Georgetown and Notre Dame in there. Both teams lost of course. I think the worse thing about it is with all of the upsets so far up until tonight I only had 6 losses on that one and the only loss on the left side of the bracket was Georgetown :( Oh well, hopefully the other 2 will pull through for me. How are all of you doing on your tourney picks. Just one sweet 16 loss so far on my end. Good Luck All and hopefully everyone has been enjoying the weather. I’m still thinking some more snow to go after these teaser days disappear.

Have a Super Weekend!!!

Update – Finally got a full update in on the snowiest US city contest at goldensnowglobe.com

First off thanks for all the posts and emails offering condolences, thoughts and prayers. They were deeply appreciated :)

Second off congrats to the Syracuse Orangemen on being ranked #1 in all of the basketball polls this week. Wooo Hooo and Go Cuse!!! It’s been a fun season.

Now back to the snow contest 😉 The stats were just updated and although the snow season is winding down it’s Rochester and even Binghamton are just a snow storm away from over taking Syracuse as the snowiest city in the Golden Snowball contest and March has had some good ones so it ain’t over until the fat man sings and I’m not singing yet.

Binghamton has been the surprise city in my opinion this season so far. Right now they are less than an inch from their normal seasonal snowfall. They are also the only city above their totals for this time last season. No doubt the biggest slagger is Buffalo right now. They are below their normal average seasonal snowfall to date and who would have thought they would be in 4th place this far into the season. Not me!

Rochester is hanging with Da’Cuse still and thats were a storm that hangs to the west could set them up for a victory. I know it was either last season or the season before where Buffalo and Rochester picked up about a couple of feet late in the contest and Syracuse didn’t get squat. Something to think about. I think ZR or one of the other visitors should do a little snow dance to see if they can close the gap. Right now it’s looking like some warmer temps are here for several days but I don’t think we have seen the last of the cold and the way this season has been so far anything can happen.

Have a Great Day All!

Normally I wouldn’t post something like this here for the fact of keeping the site fun but I’ve been getting a ton of emails wondering why no updates lately. Rather than answering all the emails I’ll just post here. A few days ago my Mom passed away and it’s been a couple of tough months before that which is why it’s been hit and miss. Hopefully in the next couple of days I’ll be getting something up here. Thanks for understanding 😉
