Good News and Bad News for Snow Haters

The good news for those of you who hate our snow is that most of the winter snow storm warnings are no longer in effect the GSB cities except maybe Albany. The storm system that came through and dropped all the freezing rain and plain old rain on most of us has expired.

The bad news for you snow haters is get out the shovels because lake effect snow warnings have been issued for some of the Golden Snowball cities. It looks like the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and maybe the Binghamton area might be seeing a good dumping of the white gold over the next couple of days. Up to a foot or more in some places between Monday and Tuesday night most likely will be falling and to make things worse the winds are expected to be blowing the snow around pretty good. Keep an eye on the weather and your favorite forecasters and weather channels the next couple of days to keep updated as to what's going on. It's gonna get messy, no doubt about it.

What really bugs me, like anyone cares. What really bugs me is that we get 5 - 6 inches of snow that makes everything look beautiful, we end up shoveling it and then it rains wiping it all out. Now I knew rain was suppose to be coming but I figured if it was just freezing rain and I left the snow it would have been a PITA to shovel it afterwords. Anyways the grass was showing this morning after all that rain but come tomorrow morning I don't expect to see any of the still green earth showing.

It's time for an SU Basketball rant. Notice how I kept kind of quiet during the football season :) Believe me that wasn't easy but it's over with now. Here is my whine about the Syracuse basketball team and it's not directed at them at all. I watched the game the other night and it was probably their best defensive effort of the season. I seen SU bodies flying all over the place playing halfway decent defense. I start reading around the next day to see what was being said about the game and very little was good. The biggest reason I was reading around was trying to see why Paul Harris took a shot at Tulane's basket????? The only thing I read that might make sense is that he thought a foul was called????

Anyways I liked the way they played and everything I am reading is about them going 4 for 20 from the outside or whatever the stats were. Get over it people. Su is going to have off outside shooting days. The thing is that they had the shots. This team so far is one of the best offensive teams that I can remember in awhile. Sure the defense needs work. OK, the defense pretty much stinks right now but the other night it wasn't bad and it probably would have had the same effect on most of the Bg East teams we'll be playing soon. Most of these guys are freshmen this year and the way they are moving the ball on offense is in my opinion pretty remarkable. I'm loving the running game like we use to have in the past. I also like the leadership That Eric Devendorf is displaying this season. Even coach Boeheim doesn't give them enough credit when they do something right IMO of course.

And don't let Eric Devendorf's style on the court fool you. He has a puppy's heart in real life. He happened to pop into a fundraiser I attended over the summer which made a lot of people happy including my niece. She wanted an autograph from him and also a hug. She was too shy to ask so I mentioned it too him and with no hesitation gave her one. She still talks about that hug from Eric. Thanks Eric and Good Luck to all the players this season. I'm already enjoying it win or lose! OK, enough said! For now anyways.

Have a great week all and stay safe and take it easy driving!

The rapid cycling between white and green and white could only be the Snow God at work. Mighty are his powers.

(I plugged him in last night. Found his box on the floor of my closet. Duh.)

not too much snow here at my house, but the airport had a quick burst that dropped 1.2 inches and has us now up to 9.9 inches as of 5pm.

I'll hopefully post something later!

heavy snow here;from 4pm to 7pm we picked up 3 inches at my house, however BGM airport was not under the band therefore i expect they had much less. the airport should make up for that tonight and tomorrow as the further north you go the more snow expected( the airport is 7 miles north of the city and 9 miles NW of my house)i expect 2-5 or more at the airtport by morning with totals through tuesday evening of 3-7 inches. syracuse should end up with 6-12 with this one. rochester 4-8, buffalo 1-4 and albnay up to 2 inches.

Ut Oh NYCO! I better hurry up and decide which snowblower I'm gonna get for this winter. Bows to the mighty Snow God ;) I also started my beard last Tuesday. I hope this double tradition thing too close together doesn't start some kind of disaster.

Well for what it's worth Syracuse isn't reporting much yet either. It's coming down a bit steadier now with maybe 2 - 3 inches for the day where I live so far. NOAA only reported 0.4 for us earlier so most likely the snow is staying more to the south of the airport so far.

Mike, the totals should be interesting come tomorrow morning. I'm wondering if Rochester might not make out the best for the overnight. They seem to have a decent snow band running right over them. It's coming down pretty good right now where I live but with the snow being more South this time the chances are my house will probably have more snow than the airport. I'm just East of the city and south-east of the airport. Both within about 5 miles or less.

Ya might want to be a bit worried also Mike. Second place might be 4th place come tomorrow morning when I do an update. Rochester and Buffalo just passed Binghamton. Right now it stands at:

Syr - 13.5
Buff - 9.9
Rock - 9.6
Bingo - 9.3
Albany - Who Cares :)

It should be very interesting come tomorrow but unfortunately our stats will only be updated from 12:30 am while Buff and Rock's will be from about 5:30am. Hmmm, there could be a new leader in the morning until the later day updates show up.

Taking another look at the radar Binghamton or just north of it looks to be getting a good snow band right now :) Maybe you can fend the others off a little longer.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of driving through three of the Snowball Contest cities: Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse - all on my way to the Watertown area. I just wish it wasn't on a weekend that had such crummy driving weather... We got to see the snow coming down going through each of the cities. Anyway, I now know where the famous Tug Hill area is :)

All the snow I came home to yesterday had all melted overnight and froze.

I like the snow. I could do without the sub-freezing temps and the ice. Ugh.

Jill, I hope you at least beeped the horn as you passed by here :) My cousin has a house up in Watertown and it's nice up that way. He is stationed out of Fort Drum right now but of course he found some way to weasel his way don to North Carolina for most of the winter. Of course his wife and kids are stuck here for the winter because of the kids being in school.

It's a good thing the weather wasn't like it is right now or it would have been a long stressful trip to say the least.

ill tell you what i think the axis of heavier snow may very well set up right over bingo tonight into tomrrow morning, i wouldnt be surprised to see 4-8 more inches at the airport by tomorrow afternoon. the snow may stay south of syracuse until later, and i dont think the ROK is doing to good any more, hard to tell they are kinda in between radar sites. we shall see. on another note we had severe blizzard conditions earlier tonight as a band came through around 9pm, visibilites were zero!!
