The Snow Dance, Reverse Psychology or Threats
Was it the snow dance or perhaps trying reverse psychology on mother nature? Maybe it was the threat of NYCO to put the Snow God back in the closet or maybe it was just our weather finally doing what it is suppose to do this time of year. SNOW! Whatever the reason sfter one of the lamest, most pitiful snow seasons so far that I can remember, snow is finaly in the air, and on the ground. Up to the north snow is on the ground so fire up the sleds while it's there. Some unofficial reports are coming in the forum that the Tug Hill area is showing anywheres from 12 - 18 inches and the snow continues to fall. I'm still waiting for Tug Hill Tina to give us a report in the forum as to how much snow she has on the ground there. ZR800 posted in the Golden Snowball forum the following from NOAA:
Other reports so far from the Buff NWS...

None of the GSB city's are reporting snow from over night. Come tomorrow morning that will all change. NOAA just updated it's current warnings at http://www.weather.gov/view/prodsByState.php?state=ny&prodtype=warnings
Right now they are predicting 10 - 16 inches in persistant snow areas meaning if the lake effect bands tend to sit in spots or keep devoloping in certain spots, look out. My guess is that all the city's will see something by morning and I think out of the 5 golden snowball cities, Syracuse is going to win this round with Rochester coming in second.
