The New Snowiest City in The United States Contest

The Golden Snowball contest goes national. Well kind of but not really ;) The golden snowball contest will remain and a new one begins. After several years of prodding from our visitors to the GSB and snow fans from actually across the country a new contest has been born. It's called the Golden Snow Globe contest and can be found at .

Many people have asked in the past why not have a contest for the snowiest big city (population 100,000+) in the whole United States? I've always loved the idea of it and it was just a matter of making sure I would have the time to put into it. So far about 50 hours into just trying to find stats and throw the website up and there still isn't a whole lot to show for it.

With that said I'll be adding stuff to the site in the next couple of days and hopefully, a big HOPEFULLY at that I will have most of the city stats that I need. Whatever stats you may see at the new national snow contest site will e changed and brought up to date. In other words I wouldn't pay much attention to them right now.

Most likely one of the cities in Colorado are winning the contest right now but I still have a lot of city stats to put together. I know Colorado has had a couple of storms so far and at last check Denver had at least 17.2 inches. Probably more by now. Chances are none of the New York cities are even in the top ten right now.

Personally I think this will be a super fun contest with people from many other states chiming in about how they feel about getting a lot of snow. The competitiveness from snow lovers and haters for that matter should by itself make it a fun contest.

The plan right now will be to have a rolling top ten list on the main page at the Golden Snow Globe contest site. That meaning that as long as your city is one of top 10 snowiest cities in the US you'll be on the main page. If you drop out of the top 10 your history until you can grab some more of the white gold to make it back to the to ten list. We will try to have an updated page of all the cities though that have a chance at winning. Obviously I'm not going to waste too much time on states like Florida and the likes. No offense to those states of course but unless some really, Really freaky weather occurs ya just don't stand a chance.

A prize to the winning city is still in the process of being decided. Maybe a plague, trophy or a snow globe will be awarded to the winner each year. I'm also hoping to have some guests posting from different people from some of the snowier cities. Perhaps a TV Meteorologist or local news reporter. A regular visitor at GSB has a fun idea so look for some forecasts at the new site. Some other ideas are being tossed around and we definitely want to here some of your ideas.

Check out the site at goldensnowglobe but remember as I mentioned it's no wheres close to being ready. I figured that the first people to get a preview should be the regular visitors here at golden snowball.

Have a Super Day All!

National is only the first step - an intriguing step that we'll watch from down here in NC. Globalization is coming to East Syracuse! We'll be in Syracuse for Thanksgiving - you up for cards?

Pam and Mike, the way the weather has been maybe we can get out and play some golf. It would be nice to hook up with ya's while your in town. Get in touch!

As for globalizing the contest, that probably won't happen because of trying to get stats plus a can see few countries padding their numbers if ya know what I mean ;) There will be a cool change next season though.
