As it stands right now all of the Golden Snowball cities with the exception of Albany have received a trace so far. It’s almost 100 percent that the 2008 – 2009 golden snowball season will begin sometime early tomorrow or sometime tomorrow night and it will be interesting to see who starts off this season with a lead. I don’t see Buffalo getting sneaky this season by getting a couple of feet lead on the rest of us like they did with the freak storm a couple of Octobers ago. At least let’s all hope they don’t. This is the time of year where I hate to see any heavy snow fall because the temperatures are normally right around freezing so the snow is the heavy weighted stuff. That along with the winds that may come with the snow could make for a mess in some locations. That October storm in Buffalo was a nasty storm as shown by the Generals video below.
There is nothing like the first fresh snowfall of the season to coat everything white making even a cloudy day seem brighter. For some reason it seems a little more enjoyable though when the snow actually holds off until after Halloween. Oh well, we’ve seen it many times in CNY and the surrounding areas in October so I suppose it’s time to get go into winter mode. For now anyways and hope a few more fall days lay in the near future.
