It Was a Nice Winter While it Lasted
Don't even think about it. It's 57 degrees in Syracuse right now and it looks like record highs for the today and maybe tomorrow for some of the Golden Snowball cities. Enjoy it while you can because it won't last and anyone who lives in New york pretty much knows that. I was just looking at some stats from last year and they're pretty interesting.
Last year about the same time we had record warmth. Last year on January 6Th Syracuse broke a record with a temperature of 62 degrees. Binghamton set the high temp record on the 6Th with 6o degrees and Albany broke their record with an amazing 71 degrees. Have we fallen into a pattern like last season for this time of the year. If you own a snowmobile or you're a skier you might want to hope so.
If you look at the snow stats above for last season at this time of the year they are pitiful. By this time last year the sledders, skiers and ski resorts were having a terrible season. That all changed within a few days from this date last year. Right around January 9Th and 10Th is when things really got rolling and winter finally showed up so if we have fallen into last years pattern things could get pretty interesting and the sledders and skiers are going to love it. Right now it doesn't look like the 9Th or 10Th has much to offer in the way of snowfall but right around the corner is some cold air knocking at the door.
That said I'd like to wish my son Christopher a Happy 19Th birthday :) Why do I feel the age with each birthday one of my kids have :(
Enjoy the next couple of warm days and have a great week all.
