All posts for the month November, 2010

Way to go Buffalo sneaking in just enough to knock Albany down from the top spot on the snow mountain. All 5 of the Golden Snowball cities have boarded the sled into the 2010 – 2011 snowfall season. I think come tomorrow there should be some more snow to add to the totals. It still just don’t look right seeing Albany up near the top. Let’s see how long they can stick around.

Have a Great Day All!

OK, ya know I have to try and get some plugs to some of my shopping sites before the snow really starts to fall. We have a few sites that have been updated and one is geared toward apparel and clothing for teens. Both boys and girls clothing. We listed several of what we feel are the top clothing stores for teens at teenscloset.com . Trendy and fashionable shirts and tops, pants, jeans, dresses, shoes and all other apparel.

Another site which includes a lot of toy stores including Walmart is toy-stores.info . I think at last check we have 10’s of thousand of toys and games there and for the best results use the search at the top of the site.

One of my favorite sites that we are still working on is college-sports-apparel.com which is college merchandise. Last I checked we have around 80,000 college products which include some great sweatshirts, t-shirts, jerseys and other sports apparel for almost every college team around. College logo T-shirts and sweatshirts with my favorite logo are definitely one of my favorite Christmas gifts :) Of course in my case it would be Syracuse sweatshirts and t-shirts.

First and foremost a Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!! I like the rest of you I’m sure are looking forward to spending time with family and friends this Thanksgiving. I’m also thankful for the great family and group of friends that I do have and most thankful for the 3 wonderful children that I have.

As far as snow goes, looking at the stats it looks like we are off to a snow season pretty much just like last season other than Albany kicked off the Golden Snowball contest instead of Binghamton. The last I looked at syracuse.com Syracuse has gone enough days in a row without at least an inch falling bringing it up to the 7th longest period without at least an inch of snow falling at one time since stats have been kept. We’ll have to do a little research and see what Bingo, Buffalo and the Rock are as far as that category goes. Enough said for now because we all know there is still a longggg snow season ahead of just waiting to start up.

Have a Super Happy Thanksgiving Everyone and a Special Thanks to Those in The Service Protecting Us.

I figured that seeing how quite a few visitors end up here searching for snow plowing I would add a section for blowing businesses. This way someone looking for snow plowing can hook up with someone in their area. So if you do plowing in the winter send the info to me at comments @ goldensnowball . com (leave the spaces out) and I’ll list it here.

You can send your contact information and the areas that your willing to plow for people, along with cost or free estimates. If you want you can send a logo or business card in picture format and we’ll post that. This is just for the Syracuse, Buffalo, Rochester, Binghamton and Albany areas. Oh, and the cost of a listing here at GSB is free by the way only for snow plowing though. Big bucks if you want to advertise here for something else 😉

Albany officially kicks off the 2010 – 2011 Golden Snowball Contest. NOAA is showing that Albany picked up 1.3 inches of snowfall yesterday. Way to go Albany and enjoy the lead while you have it. Last year Binghamton started off the snow contest.

Just a trace of snow for the other 4 cities which include Binghamton, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse for anyone new to the website. Is this the season that Syracuse finally goes down? Will there be an upset? I think Syracuse’s winning streak may be broken this season for the fact that it’s been too many consecutive wins for them. The question is will it be Buffalo, Rochester or Binghamton that takes over the throne as king of the snow mountain? Yeah right Albany, don’t even dream about it :) Hey, ya never know.

Have a Safe Snowy Season All and Remember,

SEE SNOW DRIVE SLOW!!!
Unless your on a snowmobile of course. Be Careful All!

Who is ready for the snow to start falling? I’ll give a no comment for now anyways :) ZR just posted that Albany is most likely getting ready to start the 2010 – 2011 contest up. I have to be honest I have been avoiding the site in hopes that my fall weather would last/start. It does look like there are a few warm days coming up but I think we all know that we can’t go to much longer without more than just a trace of snow.

I’m still not too happy that goldensnowball.com had to be moved over to blogger so most likely I’ll be changing over to wordpress which is another type of blog so stay tuned to that.

I’m also going to be giving a little space to snow plowers on the site so if that’s what you do in the winter and are in/around any of the cities in the contest then send an email to comments @ goldensnowball . com . Remove the spaces. Include your area that you plow, rates or free estimates, contact info and whatever else as long as it’s not a book 😉

Good Luck to All the Cities and

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE KNOCK SYRACUSE OFF THIS SEASON!!!
