Binghamton Likes it On Top of the GSB Snow Hill
OK, Binghamton, NY has once again defended the Top spot on the Golden Snowball snow hill. Binghamton was able to not only hold off today’s charge up the hill by Syracuse, NY but was able to push them back down a little further. WTG Bingo!
Syracuse was able to close in on Binghamton the last day or so and was only 2 tenths of an inch away from reaching Binghamton. I was watching the radars thinking Syracuse may have slipped into the top spot today but it turns out that Binghamton won this snowball fight picking up 2.5 inches of snow so far today compared to Syracuse’s 1.4 inches so far. This is as of 5 pm according to the National Weather Service.
City Snow Totals From Yesterday, 12/27
* Binghamton – 2.5 inches of snow
* Buffalo – 2.5 inches
* Albany – 2.1 inches
* Syracuse – 1.4 inches
* Rochester – 1.1 inches
Binghamton King In The Golden Snowball Contest So Far
It will be interesting to see what the rest of tonight has in store and also the next couple of days. If I were a betting man, oh yeah, I am I think I’ll be putting my money down on Syracuse to gain the lead come tomorrow evening snow update. Syracuse has lead the National Golden Snow Globe contest for a good part of the snow season but has yet to lead our great NY Golden Snowball contest this season.
Binghamton started the 2016-2017 snow season off in the Golden Snowball contest in 1st place back on October 27th picking up an inch of snow. So far this season Albany (Really) was the only other city to hold the top spot in the snow race.
Buffalo, believe it or not, has been in last place a good part of the snow season up until the last couple of weeks, give or take. Buffalo didn’t pass the 1 inch of snow mark until around December 6th or 7th but seem to be getting on a roll now.
Rochester, NY, the only city that has beaten Syracuse since the Golden Snowball contest started up again seems to be content right now at just hanging in the middle of the pack. The best thing about this season so far is that, that, that it’s only just begun
Keep and eye on your weather the next few days because there is a good chance it is or will be a little nasty. Check your favorite pros for you forecast and stay safe. Have a Great night All!
