All posts for the month October, 2011

Is it me or is it wayyyy too early for the national snow contest to begin? Well it has and we have several unlikely cities in the top 10 so far. A couple of them with a good jump start on the 2011 – 2012 snow contest. A few that may be tough to catch in the race to the top of the snow mountain.

If you’re a UCONN fan then you should be happy that a city from your state is in the lead.  The bad thing is with the snow this early, it’s normally the heavy stuff which it is and there are lots of power outages.  Hopefully power is restored ASAP to all of those without.

The Colorado cities were a let down to say the least in last years Golden Snow Globe contest but the chance are they probably started the contest off first this season :) It looks like they are gonna be in the contest this season already having almost half the snowfall they received for the entire last snow season.

I’m guessing this is going to be a good national snow race between the big cities with a population of 100,000 or more this season. When New York City (Central Park) starts off the season with more snow than the defending 2 time champs Syracuse, NY it has to be a great contest this season. Like I mentioned, this is early for most cities so the updates will be hit and miss until we get into the thick of snow.

New to the site is the look and we added the last two seasons snow stats in the menu up above. I’m still working on a picture gallery where if all goes good you will be able to upload your snow pictures to the site to be added to a snow gallery. Still a few bugs to work out with that :(

Enough said for now and have a GREAT snow season all you sledders and skiers.

Well I don’t know about you but to me it seems kind of early for a lot of the golden snow globe cities to be getting snow. Let the national snow race begin and with the way it’s starting it should be a good snow race at that. Keep in mind that we had to move the site over to a new server so there are probably (ARE) a few bugs that need to be worked out still.

Right now as I type a storm is still going up the east coast. Nothing here in Syracuse, last years national snow champs with a population of 100,000 or more. But there are several cities that have received snow this season so it’s time to get this thing snowballing. Just think that NYC is beating most of us right now and hopefully sometime tomorrow I can get the first update of the season posted :) It will be interesting to see who is in the lead at the beginning of the 2011 – 2012 golden snow globe contest.

Have a Great winter all and stay safe! If ya see snow – Drive slow! Unless you’re on a sled of course ;)
