Update – Finally got a full update in on the snowiest US city contest at goldensnowglobe.com
First off thanks for all the posts and emails offering condolences, thoughts and prayers. They were deeply appreciated
Second off congrats to the Syracuse Orangemen on being ranked #1 in all of the basketball polls this week. Wooo Hooo and Go Cuse!!! It’s been a fun season.
Now back to the snow contest 😉 The stats were just updated and although the snow season is winding down it’s Rochester and even Binghamton are just a snow storm away from over taking Syracuse as the snowiest city in the Golden Snowball contest and March has had some good ones so it ain’t over until the fat man sings and I’m not singing yet.
Binghamton has been the surprise city in my opinion this season so far. Right now they are less than an inch from their normal seasonal snowfall. They are also the only city above their totals for this time last season. No doubt the biggest slagger is Buffalo right now. They are below their normal average seasonal snowfall to date and who would have thought they would be in 4th place this far into the season. Not me!
Rochester is hanging with Da’Cuse still and thats were a storm that hangs to the west could set them up for a victory. I know it was either last season or the season before where Buffalo and Rochester picked up about a couple of feet late in the contest and Syracuse didn’t get squat. Something to think about. I think ZR or one of the other visitors should do a little snow dance to see if they can close the gap. Right now it’s looking like some warmer temps are here for several days but I don’t think we have seen the last of the cold and the way this season has been so far anything can happen.
Have a Great Day All!
