  1. stupid stupid winter lol nah but really down here in Binghamton at least i can tell you this has been a very “mild” winter in the sense that snow never really built up to a great depth,in other words it would snow, then rain then snow.really the problem with this winter was the amount of rain we have recieved, for every snowstorm we have had 3 rain storms; its crazy. its also crazy to think that had we been a few degrees colder we would have gotten many more inches of snow…..well heres to the winter of missed oppertunities!!!!!!

  2. One more thing. I’ll probably make a wordpress account this spring, so don’t worry about converting me from blogger.

  3. Sounds good Pat. The new look to the GSB site is a good idea, and wordpress looks great!

  4. Tom, yup I did read all the comments. As for the team member most likely you’ll be able to post come next season. Here is the thing. This year was kind of a trial to see how it went and it went GREAT with the General posting and representing a snow lover from Buffalo.

    The idea is to kind of try and have an active person from each city be able to post on the main blog. You are definitely active here which is great 😉 It’s not so much a matter of me making a decision as it is to changing the design of GSB for next season. I want to go with another format and most likely it is going to be wordpress instead of what we are using now which is blogger.

    The biggest thing will be trying to keep all the posts from blogger and propagate them with wordpress which I am sure can be done. So in other words bringing anyone else in to blog will be after the change over takes place. I don’t want you to think I am putting you off because that’s not the case at all.

    On a snow note Rochester has moved to 5 inches from taking the lead.

    General, no white flags allowed here at GSB ;p Wayyy too close.

    Mike, Bingo has definitely missed out quite a bit this season on what could have beens ;(

  5. Angela, I guess you are right 😉 On December 16th we received 10.7 inches and on the 17th another 7.9 inches. The 2 day total would have been 18.6 inches which isn’t too shabby huh. I guess it was so long ago that I didn’t realize we had that much snow on the ground at once.

    I’m seeing hints of 60 degree weather in about 2 weeks which could be the beginning of the end of this snow season :)

  6. Patrick,you said there hasn’t been a decent storm all winter, but wasn’t
    there a decent storm back in December, I think mid-December? For the Syracuse area anyway. I remember a good amount of snow I had to shovel off my car that morning.

  7. well that sucks lol very little snow at my house maybe a little more up at the airport?

  8. General, I hear you about the lack of warm sunny days this year. I think the last really decent day was back in early January when the Christmas decorations came down. That said I still want one decent storm for the Cuse. Something we haven’t had all season. Buffalo and Rochester were both able to slip one in late when you picked up the 20+ inches.

    ZR, I’m guessing about 2 inches maybe 3 here in the Syracuse area and looking out the window it looks like very heavy snow. I think I’m going to wait this one out and hope it melts rather than shovel it :)

  9. Heard some more reports, 12″ 45 minutes south of Rochester in Dansville, 8″ Skaneateles Falls.

  10. OKAY, so I am guessing 2-3″ is what the airport will report here in the ROC. I previously reported only an inch at my house, but that was on the brick which must have gotten warm yesterday. There was 2-3 heavy inches in my driveway. Glad we did not get 8″ of that!

  11. Well I woke to the neighbors snowblower so was hoping to have something to report, but I just looked out at my driveway and there only seems to be about an inch here on the east side of ROC, and I am at one of the highest elevations around here. Town already has the street to pavement. May be different by the airport, but I doubt it. Neighbor must have been running it out of gas. The sleep deprived wife and 5 week old baby sure appreciate that out the window at 5:30AM.

  12. As interesting as this contest has become going down to the wire I really am putting up the white flag and beggin for spring / summer to show (go figure the guy that in August that will be praying for an early snow), the lack or winter thaws and heatwaves just has me down in the dumos, its been cold, rainy, cloudy for a solid 3 months now.. I really want some sun and warm to get outside and have some fun!

    As for the snow starting to pick up a bit covering the roads now, probably going to have to lean down the accumulations a bit as it really didn’t start sticking till just a short while ago. I really wish this snow would have held off one more day though! I’m getting my new 4WD truck tomorrow and would love some nice crappy road conditions to break it it with, if not, I always have a flooded back yard waiting to be torn apart :)

  13. Just a light snow here in Syracuse right now. The grass is just about covered. As always come tomorrow evening the stats could be pretty interesting.

    General, I’m glad you posted something. I just started to write a blog and noticed yours before I got too far into it.

    Sorry about the lack of responses lately all but I have been feeling like $^%&$% since Monday. I’ll see how it goes tomorrow and try to catch up with everyone. Bring on the snow!!!

  14. Well with a storm “Out like a lion” would be appropriate.

    Wet snow falling now. Local (ROC) news calling for 2-5, surprised that NWS is calling for 4-8 here. Oh well, off to bed for me!
