Buffalo Hanging on to 1 Inch Snow Lead
Once again all of the cities picked up a little snow since the last update. It's finally staring to look a lot like winter and another lake effect snow event is in the forecast. Right now there are lake effect warnings beginning later on for the normal snow pile cities, Lowville, Watertown and the Oswego areas. Onondaga, Madison and parts of Onieda county are under a lake effect snow watch starting tomorrow morning and Buffalo is under a snow advisory. All the info comes from NOAA's warnings webpage which is at It's a great page to keep up on all the warnings and when snow is in the forecast it's fun to watch as it changes throughout the day and night. Yeah, I know as I said many times before I need to get a life :)
Buffalo, Buffalo, Buffalo! What more is there to say to Buffalo that they don't already know. To blow a lead as big as they had at one point, something like 2 1/2 feet leaves me speechless. That's why I am typing about it ;) Syracuse is only 1 inch away from taking over the snow hill and pushing Buffalo down the hill to second place. Jill, whom I always look forward to hearing her comments and responds to some of the posts here is from Buffalo. Jill said it best in one word what Buffalonians must be thinking right now. "SIGH". My guess is that Steve - Smadsen in the forum is using a few other choice words right about now and who I have to admit I am kind of looking forward to razzing if Syracuse ever does happen to take the lead this snow season. Steve also brought up a good question. Has any city ever held the lead throughout the season from start to finish? I don't know the answer but if Buffalo can hold off Syracuse's charge, maybe they will be the first to do it.
Don't get me wrong either. Even if Syracuse takes the lead the chances are they won't hold it long. I'm still guessing this will be going back and forth. As far as I am aware the lakes haven't frozen over yet and until they do Buffalo can blow us all away in one of their snow storms that they are known for. I was Reading the other day while doing some research that Buffalo picked up I think over 80 inches of snow in a 2 - 3 day period. I'll look for the site later and post it here. Another thing to watch for is Rochester. They have been on a roll lately and are chipping away at both Buffalo and Syracuse and expect their charge to continue. Binghamton is showing some signs that they want a Golden Snowball trophy but they really need to try harder to get some snow. I don't think their heart is in it this season. Albany???? Look at their totals above. People don't head South for the winter anymore, They head West to Albany. Enough said and have a super day all!
