5 comments on “Could Least Snowiest Records Be Broken

  1. Wow, I’m surprised that Binghamton’s least snowiest is so high, especially when compared to Buffalo or Rochester which have relatively higher annual averages.

    • Michael, Syracuse and Binghamtons snow stats that I have listed only go back to the 50’s. My guess is that their all time low snow could be less than that. I still need to check with NOAA to see what the least amnt of snow would be for all of the cities at their current locations.

      • Gotcha thanks! I grew up between Binghamton and Ithaca. I live in Indiana now and we are at 1 stinkin’ inch for the season, lame!

  2. Hey Stephen,

    Yes right now it does kind of seem like Anchorage is doing a repeat of Syracuse. I think they may be shut down right now though. If it lasts there is still plenty of time IMO for another city to over take them :)

    As for what I mentioned about the cities breaking their least snowiest records, I mentioned that before I did a little more research. When I first posted that I had different numbers. The stats from our stats page which has their lows a lot higher. I looked around and came up with some other stats for the cities that dated back further. That said I don’t know where the meaasurements are from though. If they are from where they measure now or at another location. I’ll contact NOAA to see if they know. I’m sure they will have that info.

    Whacha got in mind besides shaving your head, lol :)

  3. A couple of thoughts:

    I think Buffalo is a little too close to their least snowiest season for them to possibly break it. But still, Binghamton, Rochester and Syracuse do have the potential. Do I think it’ll happen? No. But then again, I didn’t think the leader would be at just over 2 feet at this point either.

    I agree that if Albany wins (whether it’s this year or sometime in the future) that I should do something, but I don’t think it’s shaving my head, haha. I have an idea floating around that I’ll have to contact you with at some point.

    Finally, doesn’t it seem like Anchorage is last year’s Syracuse the way they’ve been getting blasted with snow this season? I might have to do a post on GSG this weekend comparing Anchorage 2011-12 to Syracuse 2010-11. Could be fun and/or interesting.
