First off if anyone knows where I can find stats for some of the US cities I would appreciate the help. Although there are still a lot of cities I need to find I’m mostly interested in finding the snow stats for this season for those in Colorado preferably from the national weather service site but we may have to compromise a bit for now. The cities I need are Aurora, Thornton, Westminster and Arvada. Chances are pretty good that they may be right up there in the stats. More shout outs for help will be coming soon I’m sure
OK, the stats have been updated and the cities from Colorado have quite the jump on the rest of us. So far from the snow stats that we have (we’re still looking) Lakewood, Fort Collins and Denver are piling on the snow compared to the rest of us. Lakewood, Co is at the top of the snow mountain right now with 35.5 inches of snow with Denver right behind them at 32.6 inches and Fort Collins rounding off the top 3 snowiest cities with 26.5 inches.
The big question is can they hold on to that big of a lead throughout the snowy season? Personally I don’t think they can but a 3 foot lead this early in the season should have all the other cities nervous especially those of us from the North East who think automatically think we have the bragging rights for snowiest big cities in the United States with a population of 100,00 or more. Cities like Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse.
Syracuse is suppose to be one of the top snowiest cities in the US and to only have 0.6 inches of snow this late in November is pretty unusual. As a matter of fact according to Sean Kirst who is a journalist for the Post Standard in Syracuse and at Syracuse.com they are on the verge of setting a new record for snowfall. Unfortunately it’s for the most days in a row without at least an inch or more of snow. That’s not what I call a good start to the first annual snowiest city in the US contest which is now called the Golden Snow Globe. You can read the article HERE!
Buffalo, the city known for their awesome snow storms has yet to get past the trace mark. Just a couple of years ago they had that freak storm in October which dropped a couple of feet of snow on their great city. Rochester is another city that most likely will be in the top 10 sooner or later with an average snowfall total of about 100 inches. Don’t count Buffalo or Rochester out of winning the award until that last snowflake is counted. The chances are that within the next week or two the lake effect snow machines will start cranking up and cranking out the snow for Syracuse, Buffalo and Rochester.
All I can say is keep it going and WTG to the cities in Colorado. I think you are going to need every inch you can get right now before the other snowy US cities start trying to dethrone you as king by pushing you down the snow mountain.
Have a Super Day All
