snow dance

All posts tagged snow dance

Yesterday I decided it was time to do the highly anticipated Snow Dance to help Syracuse hold on the Golden Snowball trophy. Give it about 36 hours to kick in though. Right now it is freezing and sunny as can be in the Syracuse area. Let’s just hope I didn’t get my dances mixed up and ended up doing a Sun dance instead of the snow dance. Next thing you know it will be in the 70’s here in Syracuse while the rest of the nation is freezing. Hmmm, that may not be a bad thing Huh 😉 Make me wonder if Ellen (NYCO) remembered to put the Snow God out this season…

Lake Erie has frozen over so it’s advantage Syracuse, Rochester and Binghamton right?  Ummm, not quite and as a matter of fact Buffalo keeps adding to their snow totals for the 2013 – 2014 snow season while also increasing the lead over the other cities.

Buffalo is now an even foot of snow over the next snowiest city, Syracuse.  If Syracuse, Binghamton and Rochacha get snow Buffalo gets more.  Just an inch or so but it is starting to add up and so far a mainly frozen lake Erie hasn’t slowed Buffalo down yet.  The same is happening in the National Snow Contest where Erie, PA holds a decent lead and seems to add snow just about everyday even though their main source is also Lake Erie.  Buffalo has slowly been chipping away at Erie’s lead though in that contest.  Go Buffalo.

One of our visitors to the national snow site, The Snowiest City in the US made a post about Lake Erie, Buffalo and Erie, PA. Quoting Bryan,”Lake Erie frozen over pretty good but can still produce some lake effect from the following ways: moisture flux through the ice itself, moisture from cracks in the ice (often the wind can shift ice fields), and moisture through holes in the ice. Even brief thaws can open up the lake a bit. Also, friction and convergence from moisture going over the frozen surface can enhance snow somewhat. Finally, central Lake Huron is still open so Erie can still get lake effect off Huron in a NW flow, but even this is greatly diminished as Huron is freezing over pretty good this year. Having said that, Syracuse has plenty of time to catch up with Erie as they can get good snows off Ontario (they have lake effect snow warnings as I type this) and any good Nor’easter that sends heavy snow just a bit more inland than the past couple storms could easily put Syracuse in the lead”.

The only other news is that Rochester has finally slipped past Binghamton by a few snowflakes to take over the number 3 spot on the snow hill. Something in the back of my mind tells me Rochester is going to make a run sometime soon.

Have a Great Day All!

Quite the title there huh but it will all make sense in after you read more, maybe :)  I’ve been doing some painting at my house because it is up for sale now.  You know how it goes when you paint you have to move stuff all over the place and you’re squeezing through the stuff.

Well that led up to stubbing my toe :(  Instead of the normal cuss words that normally come out when I stub my toe I decided as I was bouncing around on one foot that I would continue it and turn it into the first snow dance of the season :)  So the snow dance has taken place and lets see what happens in the next several days.

I’ve been meaning to list the house for sale here on the Golden Snowball site for awhile now and figure while all is quiet this is a good time.  So if anyone is looking to move or looking for a house in the East Syracuse Minoa district (Fremont, New York) you can check out the info below to see if you’re interested.  It’s a nice home in a nice neighborhood and in a great school district.

Have an Awesome Day All…

Last Friday I was just relaxing and started thinking about the contest this season and how good it’s looking for Rochester hosting the Golden Snowball trophy for a year.  For the last several years I’ve been kind of hoping that one of the other cities other than Syracuse would step up and take the trophy from Da’Cuse.  Let’s face it, the contest gets a little bit boring when it’s the same city winning it every season.  Then I started thinking, nahhh, let’s keep it here.

I started thinking that hey, we aren’t going down at least not without a snowball fight to keep the trophy here in Syracuse.  So I did it.  OK, so I confess!  I did a snow dance :(  I did one last LITTLE snow dance geared at getting some cold air back into CNY.  OK, not CNY but into Syracuse and I even tried to get it to just hit the airport.  That way if it works I wouldn’t get a lot of hate mail and have the neighbors turn against me and start throwing snowballs at the house 😉  I really do have a neighbor who blames me and the contest every time it snows.

Anyways it looks like there is a chance for some snow come sometime Friday night & Early Saturday.  From reading around right now it doesn’t look like it will be much snow and sounds like it will be to the south.  This may give Binghamton a chance to gain a little ground on the snow hill.  It could get interesting if something changes and this Storm system gets a little stronger.

Hey it is still March folks and it’s not over until the fat man sings and I’m not singing yet :)

Have a Super Snowy Weekend All 😉
