Albany Slips Past Syracuse and Rochester
Please say it isn't so!!! Well it is so and Albany has slipped past Rochester and Syracuse with that storm that came through over the weekend. The cool part of it is that Syracuse is in dead last for the Golden Snowball award this season with Rochester trying to snowball fight it's way from falling into last place.
How long will Albany remain out of last place? Probably not too long with snow in the forecast for the next few days and Wednesday could get interesting for all of the GSB cities if it's cold enough.
One other thing I noticed is that Syracuse lost .2 inches of snow in the stats the last day or two. Give it back I say to NOAA. Don't get me wrong. The people at NOAA rock with all the stats they gather and post 3 times a day. Buffalo and Binghamton especially rock IMO ; ) the thing is Syracuse may need that at the end the way we are starting off here. Sometimes the National Weather Service does make a correction that it may have missed but I think too much time went by on this one. Most likely it was a mistake right around the 4th of December. Hmmmm! Ya know I'm getting desperate for snow when I am fighting for a couple tenths of an inch this early on :) Could be Daver trying to give Bingo the jump early on. I"m kidding of course Dave and we miss ya man ; )

The next couple of days as a matter of fact should be interesting for almost all of the cities in the US. I think I heard that with the system thats happening now most of the states may see some snow which should also make the Golden Snow Globe contest a PITA. I mean it should make it interesting. Tough enough trying to find snow stats for the normal snow cities over 100,000 but when I have to check out stats in cities like Texas all I can do is shake my head. It's a strange start to the snowy season to say the least.
Way to go Albany for passing DaCuse and The Rock and stay tuned for an interesting couple of days. No doubt there should be some shuffling around and we'll see if Buffalo can hold onto their lead.
