Well the numbers are in and I have to admit that it was a pretty good storm that swung by yesterday. For those of you snow haters I suppose you can at least be thankful that it was a fast storm and blasted through all the areas pretty quickly otherwise the totals would have been a lot higher. Four out of five broke snowfall records for the date and all 5 broke some kind of records. Here is what NOAA is reporting for yesterday for the golden snowball cities:
Buffalo – 10.1 Record Broken from 1985
Syracuse – 9.5 Record Broken from 1981
Rochester – 8.9 – Record Broken from 1981
Albany – 7.8 – Record Broken from 1986
Binghamton – 6.3 (Did Break a Precipitation record from 1979 of 0.44)
Of course Binghamton came in last place because I picked them to come in first but in fairness if it wasn’t for them not getting all snow I think they may have taken 1st. OK, I blew it with Bingo! Albany finally put up something worth talking about but Nah, at least they are close to their normal totals now.
4 out of 5 are now over our average snowfall for the season and most of us closed the gap as far as how much snow we had this time last year in the snow season. Binghamton is actually ahead of their totals from last season. Good news for you snow lovers, skiers, sledders and all other Winter lovers is more snow is on the way and most likely Winter will be coming in like us men shoppers shopping on Christmas Eve! Have a great weekend all and stay tuned to your local forecasts for tomorrows weather.
