Updated 7 PM – Well that was a short campout for Syracuse at the top of the snow hill. I don’t think they even had time to pitch a tent while they were on top. Binghamton, NY wasn’t having anything to do with Syracuse taking over the lead from them and got enough snow to take back the top spot and Binghamton is the first city in the Golden Snowball contest to hit the 1-inch mark.
Rochester remains in 2nd place and now Syracuse gets bumped down the the number 3 spot on the snow hill. Looks like there is going to be a lot of back and fourth this season unless one of the cities decides to really snow it on to take a big lead. Where is Buffalo?
Updated 2 PM 11/23 – Syracuse took over the top spot on the snow hill once again and Rochester received their first measurable snowfall of the 2015-2016 snow season. So far 3 of the Golden Snowball cities have snow this season and it probably won’t be long before Buffalo gets on the snowboard. Maybe come the next update?
Syracuse slipped past Binghamton by a couple of tenths of an inch of snow and Rochester started their season off with 0.6 inches of snow which was just enough to move Rochester into 2nd place on the snow hill. Yeah I know, pretty boring so far but just think, it’s only just begun
It will be interesting to see if Syracuse can hold on to the lead come the next update later this afternoon. I’ve seen a few videos of some light snow falling in the Binghamton area today. I’m not sure what is going on though in the other cities. Stay tuned for a late day update if there are any changes in the line-up.
For those of you that follow the National snow contest, the Golden Snow Globe things got going pretty good this weekend and cities are still adding to their totals. Chicago set a couple of date records for snow and moved into 2nd place. Anchorage, Alaska still holds a pretty decent lead in the National snow contest though almost having as much snow already as they had the entire 2014-2015 snow season.
