It's a Go, It's Gonna Snow
First off, I have to once again take my hat off to Mike Murphy from Binghamton for calling this storm before anyone else did. I just looked it up and he mentioned this storm way back on Decmeber 7th only missing by a day saying the 17th. Great call Mike :) https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=1269336486158113204&postID=5349093145198662425
Unless something freaky happens get ready to get pounded by the white fluffy gold from the sky. Most likely all of the Golden Snowball city's will have something to talk about tomorrow and Monday as the snow storm is expected to move in later tonight. The western cities, Buffalo and Rochester might end up having the bragging rights to this storm but I'm not as convinced as I was yesterday about Rochester winning this round.
I think it's going to be a close one and it only takes a little shift one way or another to change everything. The temperatures above are also going to play a part in this storm. Most forecasts are calling for it to start of as snow and then change over in some places to freezing rain or sleet for a while and then back to snow. Whoever can hold onto the cold air the longest most likely will win this round. The North country most likely will see the most snow and I am seeing forecasts of up to 30 inches for them. The general consensus seems to be 12 inches or more by the time this storm passes by for most of the GSB cities. I'm guessing there will be some changes in the lineup come Monday and it will be interesting to see if Buffalo can bump Binghamton down to 4Th place and more interesting to see if Syracuse can hold onto it's narrow lead of 5 1/2 inches in the 2007 -2008 Golden Snowball race. Let's try the guesstimate game here on the blog.
The snow guesstimate game is just a matter of picking the totals snowfall that you think the cities will get and how they will all place. The winner gets, ummm, bragging rights for calling this one right??? You can just post your totals in the comments. Lets include some LES and say snow total chenges from now until Monday night at 6PM. I'll post mine a little bit later. After the storm passes :) I'm kidding! Later this afternoon. Try to make your guesstimates by lets say 7PM and if you happen to stop by a little late, who cares. Post em, it's not like there is a prize or anything :)
Rochester - 23
Syracuse - 21
Buffalo - 16
Binghamton - 13
Albany - 11
Remember, SNOW MEANS SLOW!!! SEE SNOW DRIVE SLOW!!! Stay off the roads when this storm hits everyone. It just isn't worth it and if you don't have to drive, dont't.
