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!
