With February over, it’s time to take a look at snow totals for the little snow month that could. Some cities show some impressive numbers for the month, especially considering there are 3 less days in February than any of the other Fantasy Snowfall months. So, who took February? The table below shows the totals for all 25 cities in this season’s contest.
|GSG Fantasy Snowfall 2014|
|Starters (Full Credit)|
|Sioux Falls||9.0||Flint||21.8||Rochester(MN)||18.6||Grand Rapids||29.0|
|Bench (Half Credit)|
|Lansing||18.0||Pittsburgh||16.1||Salt Lake City||2.1||Minneapolis||18.4|
In this season’s contest, all four competitors are given the option to start Syracuse for one month as a bonus 5th starter. Brent and Mike used that option in January, while Pat and Steve have used it now.
Just like with January, those who started Syracuse this month finished ahead of those who didn’t. Syracuse had more snow this month than any other thus far, so it would appear Pat and Steve made the right call this season. However, Syracuse didn’t have the most snow for the month as that distinction goes to Worcester. In all, 12 of the 25 cities listed had at least 20 inches of snow for February, not bad for the shortest month!
With 3 months down, and one to go, here’s an updated look at the overall standings:

With a little help from the biggest monthly total so far, 151.8, Steve has regained the lead, this time ahead of second place by over 30 inches. Everyone else is in close, only 7 inches separates second from last. And if you think this contest is over, remember what happened last season, as a big lead fell in the final month. That could easily happen again this time.
Finally, here’s a look at each participant’s starters for March:
|March 2014 Starters|
|Denver, CO||Ann Arbor, MI||Green Bay, WI||Akron, OH|
|Lansing, MI||Boston, MA||Rochester, MN||Billings, MT|
|Milwaukee, WI||Madison, WI||Salt Lake City, UT||Hartford, CT|
|Souix Falls, SD||Pittsburgh, PA||Spokane, WA||Minneapolis, MN|
In this season’s contest, every city must start and be benched for at least one month. With this lineup, every city has now met that requirement.
The next update will happen around the 11th. Will Steve take the crown, or will there be a late surge by Brent, Mike or Pat? Stay tuned!
