Updated 7 PM 1/8 – Well that was a short lived stay at the top for Syracuse who managed to tie Buffalo when all was said and done yesterday. With the new snow that fell today Buffalo has managed to not only stay at the top but pus Syracuse off of the top of the snow hill that they both shared for less than 12 hours 😉
I don’t think Buffalo is done yet either looking at their forecast for the next couple of days. I have a feeling they will be adding to their snow totals and to the lead they have also. They are also slowing closing in on a few cities in the National snow contest over at The Golden Snow Globe where it’s also been pretty interesting and close. WTG Buffalo 😉
It’s a Tie! It’s been awhile since we have had a lead change and it looks like it’s going to be awhile longer. We have a two way tie for the top spot on the snow hill. Buffalo has held the lead for quite some time now but they are playing nice and decided to share the top spot for now with Syracuse.
The last update from the National Weather Service has both Buffalo and Syracuse reporting 34.0 inches of snow on the season so far. I’m sure this will change come the next update because I don’t think this includes any of the overnight snow and should be as of the end of yesterday, the 7th.
I’ll be getting another update in later and it will be interesting to see if Buffalo continues it’s run at the top or if Syracuse or any of the other cities can knock them down from the King of The Snow Hill spot on top. I think I’ll go with Buffalo keeping the lead and most likely just Buffalo. Stay Tuned 😉
A big Thanks to Joey G. for your donation to the website. Thanks Joey, I appreciate it 😉
It’s starting to look like winter may finally arrive after the nice break we had the past month or so. The weather pros are saying that the coldest air of the season is on it’s way which means it’s time to Crank Up The Lake Effect Machines
As boring as the last month has been I am really liking the fact that all 5 of the cities are still in contention for the Golden Snowball Award so far this season. Even Rochester, Ha 😛 OK, normally I would say even Albany but it seems like The Roc has been in last place just as long as Albany has been for the 2014 – 2015 snow season.
Rochester was just tied for last place again but managed to show a tenth of an inch from the overnight to pull ahead of Albany. Of course I am just picking on Rochester and I am sure you will be at the top of the snow hill before the season is over. As long as it’s not at the very end of the season 😉
Buffalo has held the lead for a good part of the season and it will be interesting to see how that all pans out this week. I believe that all of the cities are expecting the cold air to stick around for awhile so the GSB trophy is up for grabs. Let’s hope Mother Nature can set up some decent snow bands over the LES cities and get this contest sledding again.
Sorry about the lack of posts the last month or so but I have been trying to kick some kind of sickness that has lasted almost 2 months now Between that and working on my Christmas sites it took away from the time I had to spend on here. Christmas is over, I’m still broke like some of ya’s but at least I will have more time for the snow sites now. I have been able to get a lot of updates in though this season and that should continue. Here is hoping for a lot of snow for you skiers, sledders and some cold air for those of you who are waiting for the lakes to freeze to start ice fishing 😉
As far as the National Big City Snow Contest goes that is a really close contest too. All 3 of our cities with a population of 100,000 or more are in the top 10 and in striking distance of taking the top spot on the snow mountain away from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Go Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester!
It was a choice between Dean Martin’s version of let it snow which I like or Jessica Simpson’s version. They guys won out this time 😉
Have an Awesome Day All!
