Rochester continues to melt away the lead that both Buffalo and Syracuse has on them. Add another 3.4 inches to Rochester’s totals compared to Buffalo’s latest report of another 1.3 inches and Syracuse showing an embarrassing 1 tenth of an inch for yesterday and the same for Binghamton, just 1/10 of new snowfall. Both city’s should hold their head down in shame after letting Albany, who picked up 0.4 on the day beat them. That will change though. Snow is in the forecast for today and tonight, right into part of tomorrow.
Several warnings, advisories and so on are in effect for a few of the cities. Right now Syracuse is getting a good blast of snow on and off with the heavier stuff expected to come down later. The chances are that Buffalo and Rock city will get in on the action also. Buffalo has been able to fend off Syracuse’s attempts so far to over take them in the Golden Snowball contest. At one point Syracuse was within 1.1 inches of taking the lead away but Buffalo picked up several more inches to stay king of the snow hill. I mentioned before and I’ll say it again. Watch out for Rochester because they are making a move and are well capable of sledding into the lead with a couple good snowfalls that miss the other both DaCuse and Buffalo.
More on the battle of the Snowmen to come soon including Syracuse’s ill fated attempt to send a snowman spy into the Generals territory in Buffalo.
