Syracuse picked up another 9 1/2 inches of snow to widen the lead over Buffalo and Rochester. The 9 1/2 inches set a new date snow record which was previously 7.2 inches set back in 1960. Rochester piled up almost half a foot of snow pushing Buffalo back down the snow hill and into third place once again. Binghamton has added a few inches here and there but they have probably run out of time now. As for Albany, they’re history in the 2008 – 2009 Golden Snowball contest being almost 90 inches behind the leader Syracuse.
My thinking is that if Rochester and Buffalo can close February out trailing Syracuse by just a couple of feet then it will still be a good contest to the end. If ever there was a time for the cities to do a snow dance it’s now. A good Nor Easter or two can definitely help both of the cities out which is what happened last season. Maybe I’ll try and do a snow dance for both the cities and see if it works 😉 40 or so inches of snow is a lot to make up this late in the season but I think it’s doable still. This is New York remember and who knows what the Snow God has in store for any of the GSB cities. Hmmm! Maybe we should contact NYCO, the keeper of the Snow God and see if she can put the Him/Her away for a couple of weeks to see if The Rock and Buffalo can catch up a bit. NAHHH! Have a Super Weekend All!!
