Binghamton, New York kicked off the new 2015 – 2016 snow season by picking up 0.2 inches of snow yesterday. Congrats Binghamton and let the 2015 – 2016 Golden Snowball snow games begin. I’m sure everyone is sooo happy to get that pesky summer out of the way and start up the Winter season huh I didn’t think so The good news is that, ummm, OK, there really isn’t too much good news because we all have a long snowy season ahead of us.
Buffalo is way overdue to win the Golden Snowball contest and I have a feeling this may be Buffalo’s season to do it. Buffalo has come really close the last couple of seasons and of course who can forget last season when they received that epic snowfall that unfortunately hit all around the area but missed the airport. Since the Ressurection of the Golden Snowball contest Rochester has been the only city to dethrone Syracuse from the top of the snow hill and it will be interesting to see if The Rock has it in them this season.
Binghamton has actually won the contest way back in the past when the original Golden Snowball contest was running, but that was a long time ago. I think it will take some pretty weird weather for them to win it again. Then there is Albany. Enough said about Albany 😉
It should be a fun 2015 – 2016 snow season so break out the gloves, boots and whatever else you need to make it through the winter. I’ll take a look later at the snow stats when they get updated again to see if any of the other cities have any measurable snowfall to report so stay tuned. Last I looked there was still a lot of lake effect snow falling around some of the Golden Snowball cities.
The National Snow Contest, the Golden Snow Globe started up several days back with Anchorage, Alaska picking up 2.8 inches of snow for the new season. Click Here for the snowiest big cities in the country at the National snow contest.
Have an Awesome Sunday Everyone 😉
