First off there has been some crazy weather already this season so some help is needed. There are most likely a few cities that aren’t listed here that have gotten snow this season. If you live in a city with a population of 100,000 or more and have gotten some snow please let us know and most likely we will add you to the lineup. Thanks :)

Yeah I know, it’s about time huh. I’m starting a little bit later than normal but other than a few cities there hasn’t been a whole lot as far as snowfall goes going on. Of course I was just as curious as the rest of you to see how things are starting out so far for the 2012 – 2013 snow season. The snow stats have just been updated and the rankings for the cities are pretty interesting so far.

Anchorage, Alaska who kicked but last season is starting out pretty lame this season. I think this is the least amount of snow I have seen for Anchorage in the last couple of years of keeping the snow stats for the Golden Snowball Contest. Congrats to them once again though for a great snow 2011 – 2012 snow season. I’m a big fan of Gold Rush Alaska and it was pretty cool after keeping track of the snow in AK last season to watch the first episode of the show this year. Just to see all of the snow on the ground and the problems it was causing for all of the crews trying to get started digging and clearing the snow and ice off. If you get a chance it’s an awesome show IMO and worth checking out.

When you look at the snow stats you will see 2 numbers. The first is what place the city is in right now and the 2nd is how they placed last season. I know we are just beginning but I was surprised with a few of the cities that are in the top ten and just as surprised at a few that dropped way down from the top 10 snowiest cities with a population of 100,000 or more.

Provo and Salt Lake City, Utah take the top 2 spots on the snow mountain moving up quite a few spots from how they ended last season. Bridgeport, Connecticut, Newark, NJ and New York City are also off to a great start. Other than those the North East has been pretty quiet so far including here in Syracuse. Rochester, NY, Grand Rapids, Michigan and South Bend Indiana are the slackers so far this season. No need to worry though about those cities because you know they will be moving up the snow mountain some time soon. It’s only just begun and let’s hope it’s an exciting snow contest right to the end :)

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!!!
