An Average Snow Season So Far

Take a look at the 2006 - 2007 snow stats and at the average snowfall stats for this time of the season. I don't think that this has been a normal season but by the snow totals for most of the Golden Snowball cities it sure has been average. Syracuse, Albany and Rochester are all within an inch of their normal snowfall for this date and Binghamton is just 5 inches off their normals. Buffalo has some catching up to do to get to their normal snow amounts but it's within reach for them.

The other thing I have noticed is how much snow I have been adding to last years snowfall totals the last few days when updating the stats which means at this time last season all of us were getting some decent snow amounts. In the last 5 days for last years stats at this time of the year I've added around 29 inches for Syracuse, 24 inches for Rochester, 10 inches for Buffalo, 19 inches for Binghamton and 17 inches for Albany give or take a bit. So in other words it's time to start piling up the snow. Bring It On!!! Umm, rain is in the forecast by the way :(

The Syracuse Orangemen played a great game yesterday beating Georgetown who I think was ranked #8 in the country and they looked good while doing it. The whole team looked good and Harris continued to step up as he has the last several games. He made a mistake late in the game and got a good chewing out for it by Bobby Knight Sr., oops, strike that, coach Jim Boeheim for going to the basket instead of taking the ball back out to kill some clock. This happened right before a commercial break and looking at Coach B's eyes before the camera broke away my guess is it lasted into the commercial. For whatever reason that image bothered me and I thought to myself that Harris was playing a great game of pure hustle and the chances are that the reaming that the coach just gave him might take Paul's head out of the game.

Well when the game came back on, Harris didn't look as pumped as he was and he ended up fouling a a Georgetown player taking a 3 point shot which means he gets 3 free throws. Mind you this was with Georgetown making a come back. So two mistakes late in the game by Paul Harris but it didn't end there. A 10 second violation was called against the Orangemen and poor Harris happen to be the one holding the ball. Sorry folks but blame that one on Flynn who constantly takes his time bringing the ball down court. He passed the ball to Harris who didn't cross the half court with probably about 2 seconds left if that. Paul Harris came through big though through the whole game and especially at the end of the game when Georgetown started fouling us to stop the clock. Harris was the man being fouled and time after time he went to the line and knocked down the free throws missing I think only one of 6 (or 8) down the stretch.

Overall this was the team that we were getting use to seeing. A team where everyone contributes and everyone did yesterday. Arinze Onuaku stepped up and did what he should be doing every game. Consider this his coming out game because what you saw yesterday is what you are going to see from him the rest of the season.

NIT or NCAA? Way too early to talk about it I suppose but It's not over until the fat man sings and I haven't even started to hum yet. The S. Florida game hurt but the Georgetown game should make that a push. 5 more wins including a couple in the Big East tournament with the tough schedule they have ahead of them and they have a good shot at the NCAA tourney because we got robbed last year and they owe us. If not it's the NIT and ya know what? Who cares because I just enjoy watching them. Thanks for the excitement guys, it's appreciated here. OK, enough ranting. Have a super Sunday all.

im starting to think we see a snowier end to winter, perhaps starting the last week in february, if not right around mach 1st; and if everything comes together right we could see a kind of "storm train" like people in wisconsin have been seeing most of the winter. we could see major snow storms at least once a week for 3-4 weeks, this is all speculation of course, but the signs are there!!!!

Mike, coming from the west or from the gulf like it's been? A ton of precip coming our way again and once again warm air to keep it rain. The thing that is bugging me the most about this season is that we get snow only to have it wiped out by the rain.

We got around 5 inches at my house over night Friday and come tomorrow most likely it will be gone. Pretty depressing :( Lets hope your right :)

patrick, surprisingly, and greatfully(for skiers, like me) we are not expecting much rain from tonights sytem, only about a quater inch, temps will surge briefly, allowing maybe 2-4 inches of snow to melt. then there is a chance for les this week(prbably not heavy). as for you first question, looks like the storms will come across the southern tier of the country, perhaps on a track from say colorado, to missouri then across maryland/pa and up the coast; however there is also a chance for some Gulf storms too; its really too early to tell.

Mike, I'll take another dusting of 6 inches of lake effect. The winds are pretty nuts here. Gusts are only showing around 35 mph but the direction and how it's slamming into the house makes it sound like around 60 mph. Upstairs where my room is has sounded like a train station for about the last few hours now :(
