Gotta Love It! Less than 4 inches of snow separate 4 of the golden snowball cities heading into the New Year. I think this is probably the closest race going into January since the Golden Snowball contest started up again several years ago. The good thing is that snow is in the forecast for the next several days so it should get even more interesting to see which city wins this latest round. Some of the snow looked like it was hanging to the south so Binghamton may have a shot at making a move in the next update.
Looking at the stats from this time last season Syracuse was sledding to victory with an almost two foot lead over Buffalo and Rochester. Not this season! Syracuse still remains near the bottom but has slowly inched it’s way back into the snow race. Just a few flakes of snow separate Buffalo from Rochester and like I mentioned, I’m loving it.
In the national snow contest none of the cities from New York are in the top 10. Both Rochester and Buffalo dropped out and Syracuse has been lucky just to even be in the contest. Syracuse did make a big jump though from 36th place to 25th and that’s not counting the snow from the last day or two. Buffalo and Rochester are hanging right around the top 10 snowiest cities for this season but all of us have are work cut out for us. I’m still thinking that the cities to beat are going to be the us three along with Grand Rapids, Michigan, Erie, Pa and a few of the cities in Colorado. Don’t forget though, I’m normally wrong 😉
Have a Great, Safe Happy New Years Eve All!
