Here it is late December and all I can talk about is an inch here and there. Binghamton won the latest snow round picking up just over a couple of inches. Syracuse gained about 8/10 of an inch on Buffalo’s lead picking up 1.3 inches of snowfall. Buffalo and Rock City both added another half of an inch and of course nothing but a trace showing up so far for Albany.
As boring as the snow race might seem so far there is no doubt in my mind that this season could play out to be one of the most exciting ones since the resurrection of the Golden Snowball contest. Binghamton and Rochester have a small battle going on for third place right now and Syracuse is slowly closing the big snow gap that buffalo had. So far Syracuse is the leader for snowfall amount in December picking up just over a foot of the white gold while Buffalo reports 7.4 inches for the month.
As for my snow season predictions, I’m going to stick with them. I still think Nor’ Easterns will come into play this season. How off is Syracuse compared to last seasons totals. Last year on todays date Syracuse had 59.7 inches of snow compared to 12.2 this season. If my fuzzy math is right that’s almost 4 feet of a snow difference. Who would of thought after Buffalo’s snow blast in October that December would of been this mellow? Have a great day All!
