Updated 2/22 8:00 PM – The early evening snow stats are updated and Syracuse Managed to hang on to the lead this time for more than just a few hours. WTG Syracuse. That said I hear it is snowing in Buffalo now so as always it will be interesting come the morning update, STAY TUNED
Updated 2/22 AM – According to the latest National Weather Service update Syracuse has taken the lead in the Golden Snowball contest. The stats are as of the end of yesterday, 2/21 I believe so barring any adjustments from the NWS until the next update it’s Syracuse by 0.2 of an inch over Buffalo. WTG Syracuse.
I believe and KEEP in mind my fuzzy math that this is the first time since AROUND November 17th that Syracuse has had the lead at the top of the snow hill all alone. Syracuse did have the lead for several hours around January 7th or 8th but they shared it with Buffalo at the time in a two way tie in the snow race.
Below is what I posted a little while back not counting this last lead change…
From a previous post – I was curious so I just took a look back to see how long Buffalo has held the lead this season. I also wanted to see if there were any other leaders in the snow contest (Short Memory) and here is how the snow contest has played out so far.
