Syracuse Snowballs Their Way Into First Place

First off! Has anyone seen the General around lately?

Syracuse picked up a total of 5.7 inches yesterday to slip past Rochester and take the lead for the first time this season. Rochester picked up 1.2 inches of snow and Binghamton added another 4 tenths of an inch. Nothing but a trace for buffalo and zip for Albany. Buffalo's stats really surprised me because looking at the radars yesterday it looked like they were getting at least some snow showers from Lake Ontario. Yes lake Ontario! Right now it looks like Binghamton has a couple of snow bands working for them so we all better keep an eye on them.

It's soft, it's white, it's fluffy and it's fun to play in. That says it all and that's what a kid had to say about the snow when interviewed on the Weather Channel yesterday as he was enjoying a day off from school which I forget which state he was in. I love it.

OK, most likely Syracuse stats aren't showing for overnight so there may be a few more inches to add to their totals. Syracuse and Binghamton's nightly reports normally come out around 1:00 AM - 1:30 AM so Binghamton may also have more to add for the overnight. Buffalo and Rochester's totals come out around 4:30am. Albany's stats, well it's Albany, do we really care??? Maybe they will at least have the courtesy to get on the snow board before the season is over.

The sun was out this morning but that didn't last long. It's just starting to snow again here in DaCuse. I shoveled a couple of times last night just to keep up with it in case we got pounded with snow. Once before the Syracuse - Oakland basketball game and then at halftime. Speaking of the SU orange, what a game they played last night coming out with a victory and looking good doing it. They played team ball last night and it showed. Some of the new players most likely will see some playing time this season and Coach B should be pretty excited about being at least 8 - 9 players deep this season compared to having to deal with the injuries last season. The team played great defense thru most of the game and now all we need is for Rautins needs to get his shot on which he will and I think we will be all set for an awesome season.

As for parking in the garage I finally remembered to do it with this recent snowfall. No doubt it is nice in the mornings when I take my son to work not having to clean the car off but it dawned on me as I was shoveling last night. My driveway just got bigger with the car not there to block some of the snow. It's worth it though because it saves me a lot of time and the car is much warmer in the garage than being outside.

Hey, have a Great Weekend All!

So, is it too early to call Syracuse this season's champion?

PSUSyr5, you need to stop reading my mind. I almost wrote that in the blog. Should we call it now or wait another 5 months but that would take all the fun out of it :) I think this season (of course I always do) we will have a new snow champion.

Stupid NWS, they're not releasing the amout of snow SYR got today!

Yeah, MM means they don't have the reports :( I was going to do an early evening update too. This morning they reported Syracuse's totals something like between 9:00 am - 10am which is out of the normal. Might not be until 1 am now to see the changes for Bingo and DaCuse.

my take is that we had an 'off year,' and we've got a score to settle with burlington:

Just for the record, I turned on the Snow God on October 28.

(This fact can be corroborated by going to Twitter and searching on: "Snow God")

Crysania, NO, NO, NO. It's ours, all ours. Hey BTW I was browsing around your site and that's a really nice thing you do for the dogs :)

Tom, I think it's going to be an interesting season with a lot of lead changes. FWIW Tom, I didn't delete your prediction post. I'm saving it for when I post mine on here. I have been waiting to hear back from the General but haven't heard from him. Hopefully things are OK with him.

Sean, only you could add the style that you do with a video. I love it and as for Vermont by the end of this season last season will be just a memory to them. Besides they don't have a pop over 100,000. That said I know we did get our snow butts kicked last season by several other cities I believe with a pop over 100,000. I'll have to look into it but maybe we can regain the title of the snowiest big city in North America ;)

Oh, and Sean I do get what you're saying about the picture perfect scenery and it indeed can be the same for places around here.

Thanks Patrick! I love helping the dogs. I'd like to see less snow...it means less transports get canceled and more dogs get saved!

Crysania, how about a compromise ;) Here's hoping that when the dogs have to be transported the roads are dry as on a hot sunny summers day. On the days when no dogs are being transported here's hoping for several feet of snow :)
