Buffalo and Rochester Hit Season Snow Totals
Both Rochester and Buffalo have now hit their average seasonal snow totals and any snow from here on is bonus snow. With the storm that's taking place right now unfortunately too far to the east of most of the GSB cities I don't see any real threat of Buffalo or Rochester making up much in way of the snow gap that Syracuse has put in place so far this season. It will be interesting to see if Albany can pull in some snow from the storm.
Right now Syracuse is still looking really good for a top 10 finish. As of right now DaCuse has had it's 11th snowiest season on record and needs just 5.3 inches to take a top 10 spot.

I was just thinking (OK, dreaming) that if that storm to the east would have come to the west and hit Syracuse it may have set up the possibility of a shot at the all time record for the Golden Snowball cities which Buffalo still has bragging rights to at 199.4 inches. Could have, should have but didn't though. If we're lucky maybe it can pull in some moisture that may be around and hopefully get the lake effect machine to fire up. I'm still thinking perhaps a top 5 finish... Go Figure Huh ;)
One thing I noticed while looking at the top 15 snowiest seasons is that 5 of the seasons in the top 15 are from this decade. Thats a 3rd of them which I kind of thought was pretty interesting.
Have a Great Week All!
