Anchorage, Alaska Starts 2015-2016 Golden Snow Globe Contest
Congrats Anchorage, Alaska on being the first Big city with a population of 100,000 or more to receive measurable snow. That can only mean one thing and like it or not the new 2015-2016 Golden Snow Globe contest has started up again. I hope everyone had a Great summer and maybe if we get lucky the summer will drag on into January. Don’t hold your breath though
Anchorage, AK which received 0.3 inches of snow on September 29th and added another 2.5 inches of snow on September 30th for a total 2.8 inches of snow for the 2015-2016 season. Snow isn’t that unusual for Anchorage this early and their normal snowfall to date as of today is around 1.4 inches. Fairbanks, Alaska is showing a little over 20 inches so far this season. It’s probably a good thing that Fairbank’s population is just a little over 32,000.
So far Anchorage is the only Big city to receive measurable snowfall this season but there are a few other cities that have had at least a trace of snow. The most surprising in my opinion is that Chicago, Illinois is showing a trace which according to one of our visitors to our site Michael, it was a mix with hail that happened August 2nd.
The other cities that have had at least a trace of snow or wintry mix as of 9/30 are Billings, Montana and Colorado Springs, Colorado. I’ll have to take another peek to see if any of the other cities have received a trace of snow in the last week or so.
I’m really not looking forward to the cold weather that is right around the corner but I am looking forward to having fun with all of you like we always do Let’s have some fun once the 2015-2016 snow season gets into full swing and before we know it Spring will be popping up in no time.
Have a Great Day All
