Craig S. I just saw that there was a donation to the site in my PayPal and just wanted to personally (online of course) say Thanks! It’s always a nice surprise to see. Thanks again Craig, Patrick
OK, I don’t know if season summary so far makes any sense but hopefully by now you are all use to my great grammar in my posts. Hey, I do try and By the way I do read the emails I get once in awhile from some of you correcting me and I don’t just blow them off 😉
Buffalo continues to lead the Golden Snowball contest and keeps adding to their snow lead over the rest of the cities. Buffalo has held the lead since around 11/17.2014 As of the last update Buffalo leads the next best city and defending snow champs Syracuse by 12.8 inches. It’s looking like all of the cities in the Golden Snowball Contest will be seeing some snow the next few days and hopefully longer 😉 The biggest problem the cities have been haing is that when they get some snow Buffalo gets just a little more and most of the time it’s just tenths of an inch of snow but it keeps adding to their lead…
I was curious so I just took a look back to see how long Buffalo has held the lead this season. I also wanted to see if there were any other leaders in the snow contest (Short Memory) and here is how the snow contest has played out so far.

Buffalo is the King of the snow contest for now and has been the King since around November 18th of 2014. Way to go Buffalo! Can Buffalo or should I say will Buffalo finish out the snowball fight this season? Stay Tuned and It’s hard to believe that we have only had 3 leaders this far into the snow season.
Have a Great Day Everyone 😉
