Help Wanted - Snow Angels Need Only Apply
Ok, even if your a little devil sometimes I'm sure you can participate as long as the mark you leave in the snow looks like a snow angel ;) Sean Kirst's article in today's Post Standard mentions an attempt for Syracuse to break a world record. The record of the most snow angels which we be attempted to be broken during this years Winterfest. Read more about it at Sean's Kirst's Articles .
This is a record that not only should be a piece of cake to break but a record that should belong to Syracuse. Only to ingredients are needed, lots of people and lots of snow. Both of which have been a problem in the past. Not this year. According to Sean's article Bill Cooper who is the President of the Winterfest is recruiting kids from the Syracuse schools and wants other school districts to help out in setting this record that should be held by Syracuse. So for any kids that might visit here, talk to your teachers and get them pumped up about being part of a world record. If your a teacher then get it organised and get in touch with Bill Cooper at 466-9468 and let him know that your school wants to join in on the fun. I'm marking the day on my calendar right now and hoping to be a part of it. The date is February 15th and you can read more about this years winterfest and all the events at Syracuse Winterfest .
Local bloggers can help by keeping this event in the online news source by writing about it every now and then to remind people to show up. There are a ton of great blogs around to help get the word out and I'll set up a count down first chance I get and post it on here. Sounds like a lot of fun if you ask me.
Nothing new to report other than Rochester lost 2.2 inches to their totals. Yup this year we are going to take away from your totals as the snow melts also. So whoever has some snow left on the ground at the end of April wins :) I'M JOKING! For some reason the stats were showing Rock City had 18 inches. When I looked today they were down to 15.8 . It could of been a mistake on either NOAA's part or mine. It doesn't happen often that NOAA makes a change but it does from time to time. I think it happened only 2 times for the whole season last year. Me on the other hand, enough said. Have a great week all!
