I don’t think it’s going to happen but…. Looking at some of the cities least snowiest seasons there is a chance that some of the Golden Snowball cities just may break their records. Keep in mind that there is still a lot of time left in the snow season but with the lack of snow this season it is still possible.
I know Albany won’t break their record. Just a good gust of wind should blow enough snow over from Syracuse to put them over their pitiful record of 13.8 inches As for the other cities though you would have to think that it’s possible. All 4 of the cities have less than half of their least snowiest season on record. Steve Madsen who resides in Buffalo AKA – the General Syracuse & Binghamton dates back to 1951 – 52 season.
* ALBANY *
Min – 13.8 inches ( 1912 – 1913 )
* BINGHAMTON *
Min – 47.8 inches ( 1988 – 1989 )
* BUFFALO *
Min - 22.4 (1889-1890)
* ROCHESTER *
Min - 29.2 (1932-1933)
* SYRACUSE *
Min – 59.4 inches ( 2001 – 2002 )
Then on another note, the snow contest is still wide open to any of the 5 Goldensnowball cities. Yup, even Albany has a real chance right now of winning the Golden Snowball trophy which would be the first time ever for them. I think if that happens then Stephen or Sean Kirst should shave their head In my opinion it’s not looking good for Syracuse right now and this could be the season they go down. One or two good storms could plow any of the cities way past the others. Good Luck to all of the GSB cities and hopefully the Snow Gods will bless you with some snow soon
Right now in the National snowfall contest at the Golden Snow Globe site the big 3 from NY are getting their butts kicked Anchorage, AK continues to add to their totals and at last update they were about 65 inches ahead of Syracuse. I think one of the big 3 will need quite a few storms to catch up but it will be interesting to watch. I’ll try and update those stats in the next couple of days.
Have a Great Day All and let’s hope this next round of snow due anytime now drops more than they are forecasting
