The contest just got closer with Rochester now only 3.2 inches away from over taking Syracuse for the Golden Snowball trophy. This all happened while the temps have been in the 50’s and 60’s go figure. Like Tom mentioned in one of his comments Syracuse actually had some snow removed from their totals. They were at 110.0 inches just a few days ago but are now down to 109.1. Every now and then we will see an adjustment made to the totals by NOAA. I think this is only the 3rd or 4th time that it has happened this season. My guess and that’s all it is, is that they may go back over the stats and make sure everything adds up and in this case it didn’t thus the drop in snow total for Syracuse.
Believe me when I say I’m enjoying this weather just like the rest of you but I’m still not convinced we are through with the snow totals. This week looks to be great but looking and reading around next week may be a little different and colder but then again who knows. On a promising note I did see a couple of bees over the weekend but not enough to convince me the warm weather is here for good. When I see lots of bees I’m pretty much convinced. That’s my little secret as to when I think we are done with the snow. With the race this close we are still sticking to the agreed upon date of calling the contest when April is over.
One thing I am loving is this season we really haven’t had a lot of what I call teaser days. Finally we are getting some of these bonus warm days and more importantly the sun along with the warm temperatures. Got to love it! Have a great day all!
