Recently, the U.S. Census Bureau released the results from the 2010 survey. As a result, there will be changes made in the upcoming seasons to reflect the population shift. As the post title states, the current leader, and last year’s champion, Syracuse, fell under 100,000. Syracuse’s population is now at 98,401, ineligible to be in the Golden Snow Globe contest.
It is pretty ironic since the reason Pat decided to start this contest was to see how Syracuse’s snowfall fared against other big cities on a yearly basis. There are several cities out there that get more snow than Syracuse, but don’t have the population. Now, Syracuse citizens will have the same feeling as those from places like Flagstaff, AZ when another city is declared the snowiest in the country, despite the “champion” having less snow. That is, of course, assuming Pat decides to keep the population threshold at 100,000.
