Just a heads up for our visitors and the Media. The snow contest lives on after the first day of Spring whether we like it or not
To my good friends in Erie, PA, remember I am just the scorekeeper, don’t hurt me. You may have noticed that You lost an inch. If not all is good then Well you did and you went from 130.4 to 129.4. I noticed sometime a week or so ago when I was doing an update that Erie snuck in an inch on the rest of us. I figured it was a couple of days since I did an update at that time and didn’t think much of it. For some reason this last update that inch has gone missing. I know what you are all thinking. Sure an inch just ups and melts away and the scorekeeper just happens to be from Syracuse Nah, this has nothing to do with me so don’t start loading the buses up to come throw snowballs at me and my house
This is all The National Weather Service and it does happen from time to time during the season. Just think of all the numbers they are crunching and inputting to their system several times a day. It’s happened several times to some of the cities in the middle but I normally don’t bring it up. Because the snow race is so close I figured I better explain it Keep in mind this could have been an adjustment to a mistake made when they added the inch of snow or it could just be a mistake was made yesterday and Erie will get that inch back. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens. I think just having to talk about that inch of snow shows how close the National Snow Contest is
A lot of the cities most likely will still receive snow after the first day of Spring starts. The closer the contest the longer we tend to drag it on and this season is about as close as it can get with under an inch of snow separating Erie, PA and Syracuse, NY. Most likely both of those cities along with several others will be getting more snow. Last season was a good example where if we would have called it the first day of Spring we would have called it wrong as to which city was the snowiest. Syracuse ended up getting something like 10.5 inches around April 2nd. Here is how the end of last season pretty much played out.
Have an Awesome Day!
