It seems the last couple of updates I’ve been adding some snow to all of the cities. It also seems like Buffalo and Rochester seem to be gaining on the rest of us. The question now is there enough time left for a couple more charges to the top of the snow hill.
I think there is enough time and it seems like March is a good month for some decent storms. There is one brewing to the west right now but from what I have been reading it is expected to stay more to the south of us when it comes through. I’m hoping that maybe the jet stream will move up to the north a bit and maybe tighten up the snow contest as we come closer to the end of the snow season. Let’s go GSB cities! Do a snow dance or something to get the contest closer Can the defending snow champions Rochester pull off a late season victory. Still enough time left for them to do it.
I’m going to try and get a full update in on the National Snow Contest over at www.goldensnowglobe.com . That snow race is still pretty close between Syracuse, Erie, Pa and Worcester, Mass. As of the last update Syracuse was holding on to lead but only by inches. Erie may be able to cash in on the storm coming through. It should be/get interesting
Have a GREAT Week All
First Off, Thanks Jim M. for the donation to the site. Everyone of them help out a lot :)
OK, Here are the latest snow stats for the Golden Snowball cities for the last 2 days. Keep in mind that I have fuzzy math so…:) Actually I have the real estate agent coming over to do an open house so I had to put the stats together fast. I’ll double check them later after the SU game. GO ORANGE!!! Did any of you catch the Notre Dame – Louisville game last night? Awesome game with Notre Dame coming from behind to pull off a win after 5 OT’s.
Rochester – 13.1
Syracuse - 8.6
Buffalo – 8.4
Albany – 4.8
Right now it’s looking pretty good for Rochester but like I mentioned the overnight snow still has to be added. I measured 9.5 inches at my house which is just a few miles east of the city and just a few more miles from the airport. If I were a betting man, Oh yeah I am I would put my money on Rochester.
I think the biggest disappointment was Albany. I had them winning this snow round and it looks like they are going to come in last place. Shows how much I know and why you should look to your local weather for the real forecast I’ll get try and get another update in a little later when some more snow stats come out.
Have an Awesome Weekend Everyone
UPDATED – 2/9 .. 2:00 AM
I’m not sure where Rochester is getting their snow from but they piled on 6.8 inches of new snow so far today. Enough to bump them up to the number 2 slot. I’ll try and get updates in as the National Weather Service reports them. Here is what we have so far as of around 2 AM 2/9
Rochester – 6.9 – ??? – Not reporting as of 2:05 am
Buffalo – 3.3 -??? – Not reporting as of 2:05 am
Syracuse – 6.2
Albany - 4.8
I still think it’s advantage Albany but we will have to wait and see how the wind blows. Here in the Syracuse area I’m guessing about 4 inches so far. Look for an update later and have a safe night.
