Has it Finally Stopped Snowing in Da Cuse
I'm looking out the window and I'm seeing something that has been missing for about a week now. Blue sky's! Not a single snowflake is falling here in Syracuse and we'll see how long that lasts. What a difference 4 - 5 days make in the great snow race called Golden Snowball.
Albany started off this season back around Nov 7th - 8th with 1.3 inches of snow and hasn't added to their totals since. Then come around Nov. 27th Buffalo grabbed the lead with 1.6 inches of snow total. Rochester decided to take over the snowfall lead around Dec. 5th - 6th and got to enjoy it for about a day before Syracuse said in a nice way of course, "step aside please and thank you very much". OK, Isaid that and not Syracuse :)
Syracuse gained the lead with some record breaking snowfall. Three days straight they set a daily record for snow totals including yesterday picking up 14.9 inches of snow beating the old record of 8.9 set back in 1961. Way to go 'Cuse!!!
Right now all of the cities are ahead of their average snowfall for this time in the snow season and are blowing away last years snow totals. Syracuse stands out of course with probably 4 feet more of snow falling compared to last season. The overnight totals still haven't been added.
A storm is heading our way in the next few days and it will be interesting to see which city makes out the best with it. I have a feeling it will be more westerly winds and predict advantage Buffalo and Rochester. Just a hunch or maybe wishful thinking after shoveling about 8 times so far this week. So does the Syracuse lead make it a lock for Syracuse once again? No way, it's not even close to being over. As a matter of fact the snow season is just beginning :))
Hey, have a super day all!
