Buffalo Leads Golden Snowball Contest

Buffalo continues to lead the Golden Snowball contest by more than half a foot of snow this season. It is just the beginning of the season and I’m sure just reading that made a few people cringe but it is just the start of he snow season.

I think the rest of the cities should be glad that the airport didn’t get that epic lake effect snow that fell on some of the cities to the west or the snow contest would be pretty much over already. Then again I am sure that the city of Buffalo is also glad they didn’t get that lake effect.

Syracuse’s snow stats have changed within the last few days. I think NOAA has decided to deduct the snow totals as the snow melts. I’m joking of course and every now and then there is an adjustment on a city’s snow totals whether it be a reporting mistake or perhaps just a typo. Syracuse at one point a few days ago was reporting 11 inches of snowfall on the season but as of the last couple of days are only showing 8.7 inches. No biggy except it is always nice to see Rochester in last place too every now and then.

I think for later today they are predicting a mix of snow and rain, and snow sleet freezing rain but nothing major as far as I know. Chances are the roads will get slick though so take it slow. Look for another update later in the day and have a great day :)

First a Big Thanks to Emily R for your donation to the snow site. It helps a lot and as always I truly appreciate it :)

Updated 7 pm Thanksgiving Night – Wow, Rochester managed to stay out of last place by 0.1 of an inch and Da’Cuse stays in last place in the snow contest. Binghamton keeps closing in on Buffalo who is now only just a few inches ahead of them. One good blast to any of the cities could move them into the top spot :)

One thing I have noticed the last couple of days is that this about the the same time that the snow started falling last season in most of the cities. A great start to the new 2014 – 2015 Golden Snoball Contest ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a great Thanksgiving night all and a couple of words come to mind. Pepto Bismol :)

Updated Noon Thanksgiving Day – Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and your families ๐Ÿ˜‰

Both Albany and Binghamton set records for the date yesterday. Albany reported 9.6 inches of new snow breaking the old record of 4.9 inches set in 1888. Wow, that’s an old record to beat.. Binghamton had 9.0 inches beating the old record set in 1977 which was 8.7 inches.

Both Albany and Binghamton climbed up the snow hill to take the number 2 and 3 slot on the hill. Last seasons snow champ is now officially in dead last ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a GREAT Thanksgiving All :)

Updated 11/26 6 PM – I just updated the snow stats and almost as planned both Albany and Binghamton are doing good with this storm. Binghamton has managed to move up to the number 2 slot passing both Syracuse and Rochester on the snow hill and has actually received more snow than Albany so far. WTG Bingo ๐Ÿ˜‰

Albany has pushed Syracuse to the bottom of the snow contest (snicker) picking up 9.6 inches of new snowfall so far. They also broke a date record that goes all the way back to 1888. The old record was 4.9 inches set back in 1988 and so far Albany has 5 inches and still counting. WTG Albany! It will be interesting to see where all of the cities are come the next update ๐Ÿ˜‰

Look out Albany, it looks like it’s your turn for a change ๐Ÿ˜‰ First and far most take this snow storm seriously and take it slow on the roads if you are traveling. The chances are the roads will be getting pretty nasty sometime soon. Also please leave a comment if you get a chance to let us know if and how hard it is snowing in your neck of the woods.

Albany looks to win this round of snowfall or is that lose this round although Binghamton may have something to say about that. From what I have been reading, Albany is pretty much in the middle of the Nor’easter that has been set up along the coast. I have been reading that Albany is expecting at least 8 inches of new snowfall from this snow storm. I don’t think Albany will get enough snow to slip past Buffalo’s snow totals but they should have a good chance at being in the second slot on the snow hill by the time Mother Nature is done dropping the white gold on them ๐Ÿ˜‰

Binghamton could make out from this storm also. I’m no expert so check with the pros to see whats going on and what is forecast for today and tonight. Below you will find a couple of links to The National Weather Service that have the latest winter storm warnings for Albany and Binghamton.

It could be a close race for last place too. Syracuse is expected to get a few inches so if everything goes accordingly, which it never does, it could be Syracuse and Rochester fighting for the last place spot on the snow hill ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ll be keeping this post updated as best I can as the snow stats start to come in from the National Weather Service. If you have a chance, please let us know what’s going on in your area and Remember, See Snow – Drive Slow. Stay tuned for a later day update.
