Updated 8 PM 2/9 –

Like Bruce said in the comment section “don’t stick a fork in ROC vs Albany yet.” No way would I do that and The Roc is looking good right now. I may hand a spoon to Rochester to help them out shoveling the little bit of snow they received so far this season though πŸ˜‰ Thats a joke Roc and looking at Syracuse’s snow totals so far I don’t think I can say much πŸ˜‰ Actually Rochester moved into the 3rd place slot on the snow hill this last update.

Binghamton dropped into the number 4 slot and Albany still remains in last place where they belong, I’M JOKING. Albany is actually having a good season so far and I think they will have more snow to report when they put out the next update. I still think it is going to be close between Rochester, Binghamton and Albany when the new snow totals do come out but I don’t know if they can catch Rochester right now..

Syracuse managed to melt a little more away from Buffalo and we will see if that continues this week. I’m reading about a couple of possible snow events coming up around Thursday. Check with the pros in your neck of the woods because my middle name is clueless πŸ˜‰ Have an Awesome Night All…

Updated Noon 2/9/15 –From what I am reading and from looking around it’s looking like Albany and Syracuse could make out the best from the current storm. Rochester so far is showing the highest snow totals for yesterday with 5.5 inches of snow on the day. That is probably a good thing and may be enough to keep them out of last place or Not. Looking at the radars I think it will be close as to what city ends up in last place when all is said and done πŸ˜‰

If Albany gets what they ere expecting it’s most likely going to be a good battle between Binghamton, Albany and Rochester to stay out of last place. Yup, Albany has a real shot at moving into the 3rd place spot on the snow hill this late in the season believe it or not πŸ˜‰

Syracuse has been able to cut into Buffalo’s lead a little bit and right now every snowflake they can melt away from Buffalo’s lead helps. Just a few days ago Syracuse was trailing Buffalo by around 17 inches. Right now Buffalo has a lead of 14.4 inches over Syracuse. There is a good chance the lead will get smaller come the next update to make the contest a little closer…

I don’t think Albany can catch second place Syracuse this round but they could melt some of the lead away that Syracuse has over them right now. There is only 5 inches separating the 3 cities in 3rd, 4th and last place right now so it will be interesting come the next snow update a little later on. Below are the snow totals that the cities received yesterday and not necessary the storm totals.. I’ll have to look back to Saturday night for those.

Snow Totals For Yesterday

Rochester – 5.5
Syracuse – 3.6
Albany – 3.0
Buffalo – 2.4
Binghamton – 0.8

Stay Tuned for Another Update a Bit Later and Stay Safe All!

Get ready because it’s time for another snowball fight in the Golden Snowball Contest :) This could be one that Buffalo may actually lose for a change. Buffalo has been enjoying being the King of the snow hill this season and has dug in pretty good but a few of the cities may move a little closer to them with this next storm. That said Buffalo just hit the 80 inches of snow mark for the season πŸ˜‰

Right now there are winter storm warnings out for most of the cities so check with your locals and the National Weather Service for updates. There are some links below with info as to what’s going on in your neck of the woods.

This could be a chance for Rochester, Syracuse and Albany to melt away a little bit of the lead that Buffalo has over the cities right now. From what I am reading and it still looks like the temperatures may play a part in this storm is that

Buffalo is expecting anywhere from 5-9 inches of snow between now and Monday night and so far is just under a Winter Weather Advisory at last check but that could could change. As always, keep in mind I’m clueless so check with the pros for the latest updates on this storm.

Albany may win this round and they are predicting anywhere from 9-18 inches for Albany at last check through Monday night. Still hard to believe how tough Albany is hanging this season πŸ˜‰

Binghamton is under winter storm warning at last check and is expected to receive anywhere from 6 to 10 inches between now and Monday night. It will be interesting to see if Binghamton can pass Syracuse for the 2nd place slot on the snow hill.

Rochester is also under under a storm warning and is expecting to receive 8 to 12 inches of new snowfall. Can they move into the number 2 slot??? No doubt it’s time for them to make some kind of attack on the snow hill. HINT to Rochester, measure the snow before the jets start their engines and take off this time, I’m joking πŸ˜‰

Syracuse like Rochester really needs to get in on this snowball fight. It seems like just about every snow event this season both cities have had some kind of snow dome or umbrella up to keep the snow away. Some decent snow has been around them but they just can’t seem to bring it in. Maybe this time. Syracuse is under a winter snowstorm warning and is forecast at last check to get anywhere between 8 to 12 inches through Monday night. You can check out the latest warnings and watches by click on your city below.

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

Look out Albany, it looks like it’s your turn for a change πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

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.
