All posts for the month April, 2016

First, as always a big Thanks goes out to Xu Lailuyun for your donation to the snow site this season. Thanks for taking the time and they really do help. Thanks, Xu 😉

OK, only 3 days left for the cities in the Golden Snowball snow contest to catch the defending snow champs, Syracuse. Yeah I know, it’s not going to happen and it’s been pretty much over for the last month or two. What a boring snow contest it has been this season :(

The snow contest ends on the last day of April which is coming up. Of course, if any of the cities decided to get more snow after that date I’m pretty sure we would add it to the totals but it would probably take an executive order from one of the Mayors from one of the cities to overturn this. I’m pretty sure that almost all of you out there aren’t hoping for more snow though :)

I do want to apologize for the lack of posts this snow season. I was able to keep the snow stats updated throughout the season but had a really hard time finding time to do as many posts as I normally do each season so I am sorry for that. The reason for that was a change in my living conditions and a couple of health problems. Nothing major and I also appreciate the several emails I’ve received this season from some of you asking if everthing was OK. Thanks!

The other reason for the lack of posts was the lack of snow. Wow, what a wimpy winter snow season we have all had this season. It’s hard to blog about snow when there wasn’t any most of the time. I think this will be the second lowest snow totals that a winning city will have since I started up the Golden Snowball website to keep track of the snow stats.

Stay tuned for the “It’s a Wrap” post come May 1st for the New York snow contest. I may have to wait a little longer for the National snow contest over at the Golden Snow Globe website.

Have a Great Day All!
