Out Scooped by ZR and the Democrat and Chronicle
Grrr, Boo, Hiss and Shame on me. Nothing worse than running a site based on snow and getting out scooped. OK, really it doesn't bug me and that's what makes this fun is getting the help and feedback from the visitors here and ZR is a regular who is always keeping us updated as to what's going on in the Rock. I did notice when I updated the snow stats yesterday that Buffalo and Rochester set a date record of snowfall for the last day in December which I was going to blog about today. What I didn't catch was that Rochester set a total snowfall record for the month of December piling up 46.2 inches of new snow breaking the old record by a tenth of an inch which went back to 1981. Pretty cool in my opinion and monthly records are hard to break. Way to go Rochester! Way to go ZR and for catching it and the same to the Democrat and Chronicle which has a small post about it at http://www.democratandchronicle.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=200990102002
Here are the Month of December stats which I did write down the other day for all the Golden Snowball cities and they are impressive for a few of us. I'm pretty sure Syracuse had a top 10 or better but I'll have to look it up to see where this December rated against other years. Buffalo did good in Dumber but I'm guessing it wasn't even close to some of their best December snow records because they are know to have some snowy Decembers.
Syracuse December Snowfall - 57.0
Buffalo December Snowfall - 49.2
Rochester December Snowfall - 46.2 (New Snow Record)
Albany December Snowfall - 27.5
Binghamton December Snowfall - 20.5 (Dead Last - either I made a mistake or they got spanked by Albany) I'll double check the stats!
Have a great day all and have a Happy New year!
