Syracuse’s Latest Date in Season Without an Inch of Snow

According to CNY Central and Molly Matott this is the latest that Syracuse, New York has gone in a season without receiving at least an inch of snow. The previous record was tied yesterday, December 18th which was set in 1998 and broken today December 19th with the National Weather Service still only reporting 0.8 inches of snow for Syracuse this season. WTG Syracuse, now stop it and let’s get the lake effect machine cranking while we finally have some cold air around.

Buffalo’s Longest Latest Snowless Streak Comes To an End

It didn’t come to an end with a big bang, but Buffalo’s streak of the latest they have received measurable snowfall in a season has ended. It ended yesterday, 12/18 when Buffalo received a tenth of an inch of snow. Pretty much just a dusting but a measurable dusting of snow and that is what Buffalo’s snow totals as of the last update are so far this season, 0.1. Buffalo blew away the previous record by over two weeks which was set wayyy back on December 3rd, 1899 for the latest measurable snowfall at the airport. WTG Buffalo 😉 I’m really not liking this trend at all BTW :(

This Season’s Snow Compared to Normal and Last Season

Taking an idea (stealing, shhh) from an article I read by Glenn Coin from the Post Standard I added up some snow totals and keep in mind my fuzzy math 😉 I totaled up all of the snow that the Golden Snowball cities have received so far this season and compared them to what the normal totals should be and also to what all of the cities had this time last season. I’m pretty sure that none of you in Syracuse, Buffalo, Rochester, Binghamton or Albany are complaining about too much snow this season or how cold it’s been. I’m pretty sure the folks with snowmobiles, skiers and those of you that ice fish and plow probably are though and should be..

All Cities Combined Snow Totals

This Snow Season – 3.2 Inches of Snow (Really)

Normal Snow Season – 96.9 Inches of Snow

Last Season (2014-2015) – 128.2 (WOW)

Prety wild isn’t it? Enjoy it while you can because I’m pretty sure it won’t last thru the season. Then again, ya never know! Have a Great Weekend Everyone :)

From our family to yours, We wish you a happy, prosperous and more importantly a healthy New Year.  Happy New Year Everyone :)

I think I may need to put up a thank you page for the donations.  Golden Snowball received it’s second donation ever :)  The first was several years back when I went to the mail and there was a letter that had $5.00 in it.  I still have that letter some where in the house.  It was from someone named Pat and it said to have a beer and some wings on them.  I thought that was so cool.

A few weeks ago I added some Pay Pal Donate links to the site in hopes of off setting some of the costs of the website, not to mention the time that is put into the site.  Well I just looked at my pay pal account and saw the first donation was made.  It’s nice to be appreciated and was a great way to start the New Year off.

Thanks Alison for the donation, it’s appreciated.

Have a Safe Happy New Year Everyone 😉
