With Anchorage, AK having a huge lead as of the last update, it got me thinking about how they would stack up with Syracuse’s totals from last season. I’ll be taking a look at a two different pieces in each post: how the two stack up straight up, and how they each compare to their respective averages. I figure this could be a fun feature throughout the remainder of the season, given how far up Anchorage is. And that’s what got me thinking about this comparison. Anchorage this season has a big lead, like Syracuse did a year ago.
Alright, enough rambling, let’s get to the stats!
Up first, snowfall, as of January 24th.
2011-12 Anchorage: 90.4
2010-11 Syracuse: 111.8
And here’s how far above average those are.
2011-12 Anchorage: 43.6
2010-11 Syracuse: 42.9
Well, hello there! Anchorage is slightly more above average than Syracuse was last season. The two seasons are indeed quite similar.
By the way, this time last year, Anchorage was sitting at 39.1 inches (7.7 below average). This season, Syracuse is currently at 27.6 (42.4 below average).
