OK, As of this mornings update by the National Weather Service, Worcester managed to out snow Lowell and are currently the snowiest Big city (pop of 100,000)in the United States. The snow contest was tied for a couple of days with both Lowell, MA and Worcester, MA sharing the top of the snow mountain.
Lowell moved down just one spot and is currently in second place and not to far away from the leader. Less than 4 inches separate Lowell and Worcester but watch out, here comes the Favorite Syracuse rounding the last turn in the race. I think it will be really interesting when we get down to the home stretch looking at how close several of the cities are to each other right now
Syracuse has managed to slip past Erie, PA, Boston, MA and Buffalo, NY this weekend moving into the number 3 spot. Syracuse started out really slow this season but has finally gotten their snow machine working, Lake Ontario so I think they will be playing in the snow as long as the cold weather sticks around. Of course with only a couple of tenths of an inch of snow separating them from Buffalo, things could change by the time the afternoon update comes out. Stay Tuned
Updated 2/21 11:00 AM – As always I want to give a sincere Thanks to Kevin B. and to Carolyn P. for your recent donations to the snow site. I enjoy keeping the site up as much as I hope everyone enjoys seeing the snow stats and the cities compete. A fun way to pass the winter by. Thank You Kevin and Carolyn
OK, I am still surprised that we still have a tie between Lowell and Worcester after two days now. I think that may change buy the end of the day with a smaller storm moving into several of the cities in the snow contest as I type.
Syracuse is taking advantage the most so far as the Massachusetts cities take a little break from the snow. Syracuse managed to move into the Top 5 snowiest cities again and they may not be done just yet. Buffalo, NY has also been able to melt away some of the snow lead that Both Worcester and Lowell had over them.
It’s going to be interesting to see if the two leaders can hold on to the top spot on the snow mountain by the time this recent storm passes by. I’m starting to think that we may have a new leader come the end of this weekend. I think the Biggest question is which city will it be?
The Golden Snow Globe contest is about as close as it can get for this time in the season with only 6 inches of snow separating the Top 5 cities which are Lowell, Worcester, Buffalo, Boston and Syracuse in that order. Erie is right in the think of things too and less than 10 inches away from the top. We all know how bad last seasons snow champions want it this season and I’m sure they will do their best to hold onto the title of snowiest Big city in the United States.
From what I have heard so far from the members in our Facebook group that it is snowing right now in Buffalo, Erie and Rochester. Don’t take too big of a break Mass, it may cost you having one of your cities in the Top 3 Stay tuned for a later day update when the NWS puts out the next update.
Have a Great Day Everyone and Take it Slow
