I want to give a Big Thanks to Alison S. for your kind donation to the snow site. It really helps out Alison and Thank You for taking the time
All of the numbers from the recent snowstorm are in and Rochester won this snowball fight by a few flakes. What was I even thinking when I mentioned that Rochester could go to last place All of the cities snow storm totals are below and the good news is that a few of us gained on Buffalo this round.
Syracuse not too long ago was behind by around 17 inches and as of the last update are behind a little less than a foot now. Rochester has been climbing up and we know it’s just a matter of time when they make their move. Well they actually did this last storm..
Buffalo’s lead in the snow contest has melted away a little more and I think with soooo much time left in the season it’s going to end up really close again this season. Looking at the snow stats and the way the snow has been falling this season, especially this month I think all of the cities have a shot at winning. Yes, including Albany, NY Go Figure..
The snow stats below are from Saturday thru Monday and as always don’t forget about my fuzzy math when I start adding up snowflakes and crunching numbers 😉 Rochester won this snowball fight by 1.4 inches over Syracuse. See, having the airport a little to the North does hurt Syracuse more than you think… I really thought Albany was going to win this round thinking they would get around 14 inches. WTG Rochester
Rochester – 2/7 = 0.9, 2/8 = 5.5, 2/9 = 6.5 Total = 12.9
Syracuse – 2/7 = 2.1 2/8 = 3.6, 2/9 = 5.8 Total = 11.5
Albany – 2/7 = 0.9, 2/8 = 3.0, 2/9 = 6.1 Total = 10.0
Buffalo – 2/7 = 1.0, 2/8 = 2.4, 2/9 = 2.7 Total = 6.1
Binghamton – 2/7 = 0.8 2/8 = 0.8 2/9 = 2.4 Total = 4.0
Look for another update a little later and have an Awesome Day!
Updated 2/4 6:30 PM – I just got the latest update in for all of the Golden Snowball cities. Albany is not reporting this last update so it’s hard to tell if Rochester snowed it’s way out of last place or not. It comes down to whether Albany has any new snowfall to report. I’ll post new snow updates as they come in from the National Weather Service. For now we’ll take The Roc out of last place 😉
I finally got a chance to update the snow totals from this latest round of snowfall and it looks like Rochester has dropped to the bottom of the snow hill again. I’ve also been seeing some controversy after reading around and looking at some of the snow totals from all of the areas all around Rochester.
You all know me and that I stay out of the controversy. OK, most of my friends and family will disagree with that last statement but I do try to on the site anyways 😉 I came across one snow map that was showing all of the cities surrounding the Rochester area yesterday as I was looking around for some snow stats and they were all higher than what is being reported. I’ll leave it at that 😉
Here are some totals from yesterday and also some of the storm totals for the 2 days. As always keep in mind my fuzzy math 😉 All of the cities set a date record for yesterday except for Rochester. The first number is the new record and the last is the old record and the year it was set.
Date Snow Records That Were Broken Yesterday 2/3
Albany – 11.9 R – 5.5 1892
Binghamton – 8.8 R – 6.8 1956
Syracuse – 8.8 R – 7.0 1990
Buffalo – 8.2 R – 8.0 2013
Snow Storm Totals for All Cities From 2/1 thru 2/2
Buffalo – 2/1 4.4 – 2/2 8.2 Total = 12.6
Albany – 2/1 Trace – 2/2 11.9 Total = 11.9
Binghamton – 2/1 1.9 – 2/2 8.8 Total = 10.7
Syracuse – 2/1 1.2 – 2/2 8.8 Total = 10.0
Rochester – 2/1 2.3 – 2/2 6.1 Total = 8.4
I don’t see Rochester hanging at the bottom of the snow hill for too long. The snow contest is still close enough and it would only take a snowflake over 5 inches for Rochester to sled into second place. First place will take a whole lot more with the lead that Buffalo has right now. All in all it’s still a close snow race with plenty of time left in the snow season for any of the cities to win. Yes, even Albany 😉
Have an Awesome Day all and I will probably get another update in a little later…
Updated 4/23 11:00 PM – Well it turned out to be a bust so far for the GSB cities but a couple of records were broken. Rochester is reporting 2.6 inches breaking the old record of 0.8 set in 1956. Buffalo tied their date record going all the way back to 1927 with 0.8 inches. Could be a little bit left in the air but, but ummm, go Rochester
Remember it’s not over til the fat man sings and I’m not singing yet. I do have a pretty good humming going on right now though 😉
Update 4/23 12:30 pm – No new stats to report from NOAA (the National Weather Service) yet. Just a trace for a couple of the cities as of yesterday. They will come out a little bit later this afternoon and I’ll update them when NOAA has an update. Here in Syracuse or at least around my house nothing to report. Any ideas on snow in Buffalo, Rochester and Maybe Bingo? Stay tuned
With just about 7 days left before the contest ends Rochester might have to worry about this storm that is suppose to hit in the wee hours and go into perhaps Tuesday. Stop the parade!
So far from what I have been watching Buffalo is looking to gain the most out of this storm. Depending on how you look at it that is. The higher elevations should be getting a good dumping of (unfortunetly) the wet heavy white gold. Chances are Rochester will get enough themselves to hold off this late season charge but it should be interesting. Syracuse from what I’m hearing anyways, is suppose to get mainly rain and a lot of it. Let’s just hope there isn’t a mess with trees down and power outages.
