Buffalo Leads Golden Snowball Contest

Buffalo continues to lead the Golden Snowball contest by more than half a foot of snow this season. It is just the beginning of the season and I’m sure just reading that made a few people cringe but it is just the start of he snow season.

I think the rest of the cities should be glad that the airport didn’t get that epic lake effect snow that fell on some of the cities to the west or the snow contest would be pretty much over already. Then again I am sure that the city of Buffalo is also glad they didn’t get that lake effect.

Syracuse’s snow stats have changed within the last few days. I think NOAA has decided to deduct the snow totals as the snow melts. I’m joking of course and every now and then there is an adjustment on a city’s snow totals whether it be a reporting mistake or perhaps just a typo. Syracuse at one point a few days ago was reporting 11 inches of snowfall on the season but as of the last couple of days are only showing 8.7 inches. No biggy except it is always nice to see Rochester in last place too every now and then.

I think for later today they are predicting a mix of snow and rain, and snow sleet freezing rain but nothing major as far as I know. Chances are the roads will get slick though so take it slow. Look for another update later in the day and have a great day :)
