Syracuse, NY Snows Into The Lead in Golden Snowball Snow Contest

Congrats to Syracuse on slipping past Buffalo and Rochester the last couple of days. All of the cities were pretty far behind what their normal average snowfall should be for this time in the season.

Syracuse broke a date snow record for today already with 8.8 inches of snow being reported so far beating the old record of 5.9 inches which goes back to 1951. That was enough snow to put Syracuse in the lead in the National Golden Snow Globe snow contest also. Erie, PA was winning the National snow contest which is for the bigger cities with a population of 100,000 or more as of the 2010 census. You can check out the Top 25 snowiest Big cities in the United States at www.goldensnowglobe.com.

I think we are going to see a lot of lead changes this snow season and it looks like Buffalo is ready to join in the snowball fights this season. Buffalo is way overdue to have a decent snow season and it should be a fun one at that :)

Have a Great Night All and Be Safe On The Roads :)

Rochester Slips Past Buffalo, Leads Snow Contest

Updated 12/11 7 PM – First off as always I just want to give a big Thanks to Faye H. for your recent donation and the first one of the season. Thanks for also pointing out something that I needed to change on the site. I appreciate you taking the time Faye :)

It was a short visit to the top of the Golden Snowball contest for Buffalo. Buffalo knocked Syracuse out of first place yesterday and today it’s Rochester’s turn to knock Buffalo out of the top spot. As of this last update, Rochester leads the Golden Snowball snow contest. WTG Roc :)

Buffalo slid down to second place but is only 3 tenths of an inch behind Rochester. Syracuse dropped all the way down to the number 3 spot on the snow hill. The good news is, we will probably be seeing more changes in the next few days because I’m seeing a lot of reports of maybe a lot of snow which should be starting pretty soon if it hasn’t already in some of the cities. Stay safe and of course check with your local weather pros for the latest watches, warnings and forecasts.

Have a great night all :)

Buffalo Leads Golden Snowball Snow Contest

I had a feeling that after watching the snowy Buffalo Bills game against the Indianapolis Colts that Buffalo was going to snow ahead of Syracuse in the New York Golden Snowball snow contest and they did. Buffalo also won the game playing in the snow which was fun to watch. WTG Buffalo :)

Buffalo leads Syracuse by 0.6 of an inch as of this last update and I’m guessing they will probably be adding more snow to their lead when the next update comes out tomorrow. Albany was in a tie with Rochester as of yesterdays snow stats but Rochester wasn’t having any of that and got enough snow to hold on to the 3rd place spot on the snow hill by themselves.

Last Seasons Snow Champs and Snowy Season

Binghamton which is the defending snow champs from last season, the 2016-2017 snow season is in dead last right now. It has to be lonely at the bottom of the Golden Snowball hill :) Binghamton had an awesome snow season last season and broke a ton of snow records for the city including the hardest to break, their highest seasonal snowfall totals on record. Right now Binghamton has 2.1 inches of snow compared to 40.3 inches on this date last season. What a difference a season makes but it’s still early.

Last season at this time in Binghamton was leading the Golden Snowball snow contest and Buffalo was in last place. The total opposite this season and you know what that means. OK, I don’t have a clue what that means but I do know it should be a fun snow season ahead and it’s only just begun.

Have a Great Night All :)
