A Big Thanks to Sandrah C. for your donation today. They all help and to be honest makes the time I put into the snow site seem like it’s appreciated Thanks for taking the time Sandrah
Updated 11/16 7:30 PM – Just a quick heads up that I did a full update. I only intended to do a top 25 update but when I saw how many cities had some more snow of course I got curious Almost all of the Golden Snow Globe cities shuffled around this up date. Erie still hold on to the lead but South Bend closed the gap a little.
Other cities are closing in and it looks like the big winners this update were Sioux Falls, South Dakota, cities from Michigan, Illinois and a few others. Best part is the beginning of the week starting tomorrow will keep the snow contest interesting. Drive safe all
OK, I think Erie, Pa is getting too use to being on top in the National Snow Contest. Erie picked up another 2.3 inches of fresh snow today to slip past South Bend, Indiana by a couple of inches. Let’s see if South Bend can launch a snowball attack on Erie and regain the top spot on the snow mountain Better yet maybe we should all join forces and make it a snowball fight to remember So far we have had 4 lead changes this season with 3 different leaders…
Remember last season, the 2013 – 2014 snow season most of the cities were way above their annual snowfall with several cities breaking their all time snow records and several others hitting their top 5 snowiest season. If you think last season was tough in Erie, Pa and a couple of other cities this season could be even more interesting.
Right now Erie, Pa has 15.6 inches of snowfall to date. The normal snowfall for this date in the season should be 2.9 inches which means Erie is already 12.7 inches over their average snowfall to date. It gets even better though because last seasons snow champs had a really snowy season to pull off the victory. This season so far they are blowing away the snow totals that they had at this time last season which was only 3.4 inches of snow. In other words Erie, Pennsylvania already has over a foot of snow more than they did at this time last season. It will be interesting to see what Mother Nature has in storm for them this season
I know, Erie, Erie, Erie – Marsha Marsha, Marsha but let’s face it, right now it’s all about Erie and South Bend but of course that will change as the season goes on Cleveland, Ohio deserves some credit also hanging in the #4 snow slot right now. Cleveland has 6.9 inches of snow on the season which is a good start for them. WTG Cleveland.
Last season I dropped several cities from the snow contest that weren’t doing much as far as snow totals go. I did take a look earlier at those cities and ended up putting 3 of them back in for the fact that one of them is in the top 5 right now and the other 2 are in the top 10. I added Boise, Idaho, Pueblo, Colorado and Colorado Springs back into the lineup. Boise has 7.6 inches for their snow totals and are in 3rd place right now. As for my home team Syracuse, hey, we are at least on the snow board right now
Have a safe, awesome weekend all!
