Is Tonight the Night Syracuse Hits 100 Inches

I know it's starting to sound like the Marsha, Marsha, Marsha (Brady Bunch episode with Jan being jealous of Marsha) with a lot being mentioned about Syracuse, Syracuse, Syracuse here lately but lets face it, that's the talk right now with the GSB cities. With Syracuse being just 1.2 inches shy of the 100 inch milestone this early in the season there is a good chance for that happening tonight with a little help for the LES machine. The forecasts I'm reading are anywhere from 1 - 3 to 3 - 6 inches possible.

I was reading an article by Charles McChesney who is a writer over at Syracuse.com and he mentions that only twice before have we had that much snow by this point in the season going by the National Weather Service records. In the 2000-2001 season, 110.6 inches of snow had fallen by Jan. 14. In the 1995-1996 season, there was 105.7 inches according to his article which can be read at http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf?/base/news-16/1231927178198280.xml&coll=1

In a sad news event that took place here in Syracuse, Sean Kirst has an article going that is getting a lot of responses about a terrible tragedy that happened where a 12 year old girl was killed in a sledding accident after she slid into a car parked on the side of the road. He is asking for ideas at his blog and receiving many of them, some of which are pretty good ones in hopes to stop an accident like this from happening in the future. Normally we try to keep this upbeat but IMO this is something that needs to be addressed and the chances are that these kinds of tragic accidents happen in most of the GSB cities. If you have some time visit the post and no matter what city you are from feel free to leave some feedback. Hopefully Sean will forward all of the ides to the city officials to see what can be done to make what should be winter fun for children and adults more safer. Leave your thoughts and ideas at http://www.syracuse.com/kirst/index.ssf/2009/01/the_westcott_tragedy_a_safe_pl.html Personally I like several of the ideas some which include the bails of hay and helmets along with building some kind of up slope to slow the sledders down when they reach the bottom of the hill. JMO!

Man, I hope it snows. I hate when it's this cold (re: 7 degrees) and doesn't snow. And after 100 inches in 10 weeks, what's another couple, right?

I hear what your saying Josh. With these little blasts of snow, just enough to make us shovel and freeze anyways might as well be several inches of snow to make it worth while. Is that a couple of inches or another couple of hundred your talking about ;)

As for the 100 inch mark it doesn't look like it happened. Right now the lake effect snow is starting up but it looks like it may stay up north. Hopefully it will drop a little to the south sometime today. Looking to the west it looks like Buffalo is either just missing some lake effect snow from Erie or they are on the boarder and getting some of it. Hopefully they are getting some to tighten the race up a bit.

I guess we didn't hit the milestone yet. There was just some light snow on my car this morning, nothing the windshield wipers couldn't handle. The windchill (-12) is another story altogether. It's so cold my teeth hurt.
