And The Golden Snowball Award Goes To - Syracuse

It's a Wrap!!! Congratulations to Syracuse on winning the 2009 - 2010 Golden Snowball Award. Yeah I know it's getting old isn't it? Once again Syracuse has been able to hold off the cities of Rochester, Buffalo and Binghamton to be king of the snow hill and capture the well sought after Golden Snowball Trophy.

This season was pretty much just a snow storm away thru a good part of the snow season to see what I thought may have been a new winner. It just never happened. What killed the hopes of a new winner in my opinion this season was similar to last years, a mild March and April. For the last two months, March and April Binghamton received the most snow and it was only 2.6 inch. Both Rochester and Albany received .2 inches for both months combined and Syracuse and Buffalo received just a trace of snow.

I think the biggest surprise was the fact that Buffalo ended up in 4th place. Binghamton, our southern city in the contest was able to hold on to 3rd place. I'll have to take a look back and see if Buffalo has ever been below 3rd at the end of the snow race. Binghamton was also the only city to beat both their normal seasonal snowfall beat last years totals. The rest of us had what can only be described as an easy winter season. Wouldn't it have been nice if Albany beat Buffalo??? I'm kidding, NOT. I'll try to throw together a season summary in the near future but you all know how that normally turns out.

Enough said other than a BIG THANKS to everyone that visits here and has fun with the contest and thanks to all of you who post here which really makes the contest fun. That's what it's all about!!!

Have a Super Summer All!!!

Thanks for the Golden Snowball tracking service! It helps me know where to go, and sometimes gives us folks in Rochester something to lord over the other (loser!) cities. I have used your data in the newsletter for the Rochester Nordic Ski Club ( to help remind the crosscountry skiers what a great year we really had!

As a true Central New Yorker, I can't imagine a year without tons of snow. Don't like driving in it anymore, but that doesn't mean I don't embrace it.

There are 4 seasons here in the NE, and Syracuse needs to wake up and play on our abundant snow.

Thanks for the site, I watched avidly for 2plus years now.

I would love to see how Mexico or Redfield, NY measure up. Smaller towns upstate. The logistics would make this difficult. Thanks for the work.

PAT!!!!!! Albany is going to be on the board today!!! Might be the only time all year they are in 1st place, and the only ones on the board! Better start the 2010-2011 stats!

ZR, thanks for the heads up :) I've been keeping an eye on things kind of. I think there may have been one other year where Albany started it up but I'm not sure. Bingo is good at getting things started.

To Anon one, I'll try to remember to give your site a plug.

Anon 2, thanks and I agree with you ;)

Judy, no doubt Mexico and Redfield would more than measure up in snow totals and then some. I say that with respect to all of the smaller cities and towns that get pounded every winter :)

Jill, thanks for being part of the contest every season.
