Syracuse Slips Back into First
Syracuse has sledded into first once again but by less than an inch but after reading around it looks like about 5 inches of snow fell in the Syracuse area so the totals will be going up. Remeber we go by NOAA stats which are official and so far only 1.8 is being reported which was just after midnight. Once NOAA updates them later we'll post some new stats. A winter storm watch is in effect for most of NY from Sunday through Monday and you can read the Generals post about it at http://goldensnowball.com/2007/12/storm-early-next-week.html and here is a good picture of what Steve is talking about at http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/index_loop.php
I think this season will be remembered as one that had the most lead changes throughout the snow season by the time everything is done and over with and that's no time soon. So far we have had 4 leaders in the Golden Snowball contest with Buffalo kicking off the new season just like they did last year.
Syracuse is reporting 1.8 inches of new snow for yesterday and more fell over night. A few tenths of an inch for Bingo and Albany and thats about it for now. I woke up to the sound of the plows dropping to the road and as always had to get up and see what the Snow God had dropped on us while I was sleeping. I was a little surprised to see everything covered in white even though I saw a band coming our way last night right before I fell asleep. I wasn't surprised to see that my Neighbor Frank across the street already had his driveway shoveled. He normally is the first followed by Julie and then myself a week later when I decide it's not going to melt anytime soon. I'm kidding of course, I do shovel sooner. Frank is kind of the leader of the neighborhood in a sense that we all kind of keep an eye on what he is doing. If he puts his trash out we know it's trash pickup the next day. Every now and then though Frank goofs up and of course us being the followers that we are end up doing the same thing. Trash night here is on Tuesdays but but one time Frank mistakenly put his out on a Monday night and of course a couple of us followed :) Ok, enough rambling and back to snow.
Don't be surpised if Syracuse's lead doesn't last too long. Looking at the radars it looks like Buffalo and maybe Binghamton is getting some snow as I type. Plus read The Generals post below about a storm system moving in to all of the GSB cities. So far there have been 4 different leaders as mentioned and I'll try to keep track of that in the posts. Leaders and changes so far to date for the 2007 - 2008 snow season:
Have a great day all and get outside and play in the snow.
