Syracuse has pushed Binghamton a spot down the snow hill to move into the #1 spot for the first time this season. All of the Golden Snowball cities now have measurable snow this season and obviously we have only just begun 😉
It’s close and only 0.3 of an inch separate Syracuse and Binghamton as of the last update from NOAA. I’m out of town right now so unfortunately I missed the first snowfall of the season although I did see a few snowflakes falling here in Clayton, NC this morning. I think I counted about 11 of them 😉
I think this is going to be another fun season and as always any of the cities can win the Golden Snowball trophy which sits just outside of the Mayors office door on a shelf here in Syracuse. OK, I don’t think Albany can win but it’s up for grabs for the other four cities.
Have an Awesome Weekend All
I have to wonder if the folks in Buffalo can handle a few more inches of snow this season in order to claim the Golden Snowball Award? As of today there is only 2.1 inches of snow separating Syracuse and Buffalo.
Time is running out but we are still stuck in this pattern that keeps bring cold air into the cities. A quick blast of snow over Buffalo and they could dethrone last seasons snow champ Syracuse. Do you want it Buffalo or is it enough already?
There has only been a couple of times since the contest was resurrected that it’s been this close at the end of the season and I DON’T like it. It makes it too hard to call the contest come the 1st of May. Several years back I went into negotiations with one of the city reps at the time. They wanted it called April 1st and I said that it was too early to call it because we still get snow. We agreed to May 1st but what happens if a city, let’s say Buffalo gets a few more inches May 5th and goes ahead of Syracuse? Who was really the snowiest city in the contest? Any thoughts?
Have a Great Day All
Hey, some good news for you snow haters. In just a couple of hours you can look out the window and say Goodbye to Winter and Hello to Spring. The bad news is that the snow contest lives on for the main fact that we will probably be getting more snow 😉 But wait, there is more good news. The days start getting longer than the nights do now, Wooo Hooo 😉
Syracuse only has less than an 8 inch lead on Buffalo right now so even if we could it would be way too early to call it when it’s this close. Buffalo could slide past Syracuse with one decent storm and I don’t think we are done with the storms just yet. There was one the other day that hit the South but it didn’t come North enough to effect us.
It is the first day of Spring though so we know what is right around the corner. Most likely a long HOT summer and me whining about how hot it is every minute of the day. I’m joking, kind of 😉 I’m looking forward to hanging by the pool sipping on a Margarita errr, I mean soda pop and the smell of fresh cut grass…
Have an Awesome Day Everyone!
Rochester added another inch to their totals and I have to admit that it’s not looking good right now for the other GSB cities. Looking at the forecast for the next week or so with the lows still going below freezing it’s still too early to concede not to mention the contest doesn’t end until April 30th at midnight.
When the time does come no doubt the word concede is the perfect word to use. Definition of concede – The word concede to Admit that something is true or valid after first denying or resisting it.
I think reality is setting in for those of us in the Syracuse area. Hope for a strong comeback slowly fading away now with each day that passes by. After nine seasons, the chance of the Golden Snowball trophy staying where it’s been, just outside of the Mayors office on a shelf will soon be heading west. West to Rochester, New York which will be the first time since the resurrection of the golden snowball contest began About 10 years ago.
Although the hope is fading for repeat snow champions Syracuse we’re just not quite ready to concede just yet It will be interesting to see how the city of Syracuse presents the trophy to Rochester if they do hold on for the victory. Any thoughts or suggestions to pass along to the Mayors office?
