All posts for the month October, 2013

I just finished the first 2013 – 2014 full update for the snowiest big city in the United States, population of 100,000 or more and it’s all Colorado. This kind of surprises me because normally Anchorage, Alaska has something to report by now and all they are showing is a trace of snow. Not a single flake has fallen yet here in the Syracuse, New York area and it’s the same for some of the other cities that were on the top last season.

Yup, it’s still a little early for most of us but the cold air is starting to move in and I’m guessing come the next update there will be several more cities showing some measurable snow. Right now we have only 4 cities reporting measurable snow and they are all from Colorado. Lakewood, Co is the King of the snow mountain right now with 3 inches of snow hitting the ground so far this season, followed up by Fort Collins, Denver and Pueblo, Colorado. If you remember, last season we had to drag on because the cities in Colorado had some decent snow late in the season.

If I remember right and trust me I normally don’t, the Colorado cities started off really slow and made a big push at the end of the season. Syracuse got luck last season with some late snow of their own to overtake snowy Erie, Pa and Worcester, Mass right near the end of the season. Is there a city that will dethrone Syracuse this season? After the 2012 – 2013 season I have to say yes but the question is which city will be the snowiest city in the U.S.A. for the 2013 – 2014 snow season? Do you have any favorites????

Have an Awesome Day All ;)

I kind of just want to just yell out NOOOOOOOOO but that isn’t going to stop the snow from coming and over taking the warm summer and fall days that seem to have just flied by like the snow will be flying sometime really soon :( Yup, here we go again and the contest has actually already begun. I took a peak around and sure enough some of the cities have some measurable snowfall totals and it’s mainly the Colorado cities. They were the ones who stretched the national snow contest out last season and go figure they want to get a jump start this season..

The snow contest for the 2012 – 2013 snow season was one of the closest and most exciting contest since we started up the national snow site. As always we had to wait for some of the Colorado cities before we could call it but it was a great snow race right to the end between Erie, Pa, Worcester, Mass, Syracuse, New York and some of the cities from Colorado who made a late charge at the end.

A lot of back and forth between Erie, Worcester and Syracuse but Syracuse, NY was able to get some late snow, I think about a foot if my memory serves me right (it normally doesn’t so beware) to jump into the lead and take claim to the snowiest big city for the 2012 – 2013 season. Congrats to Syracuse and all of the other cities who hung tough till the end. It was a fun snow season :)

I’ll be checking some stats tonight and hope to get at least a top 10 update in and maybe more tonight. Hey, it’s been awhile and I have to remember how to this stuff again. Hopefully NOAA, the National Weather Service hasn’t made too many changes in the off season.

Have a Great Snowy Season All and Stay Safe ;)   As Always, See Snow Drive Slow!

Just a heads up that The Golden Snow Globe site may be out of commission for several days. I’ll get it back up as soon as possible. I’m in the process of moving and have had to prioritize some expenses. It shouldn’t be down for too long and I don’t think we will see any snow in the near future although it feels like it is ready to snow out right now. BRRRRR! I know Colorado has had some snow and I’ll be checking to see if the contest has started yet this season if any of the cities have more than a trace :)

Have an Awesome Week All :)
