Erie, Erie, Erie, Marsha, Marsha, Marsha I know most of the talk here has been about Erie, Pa, last seasons King of the snow mountain and defending champs but they have had the lead for awhile now. Before Erie it was all about Grand Rapids, MI which held the lead for most of the first half of the 2014-2015 snow season. The good news is that Buffalo, NY and Worcester, MA are keeping the contest close and less than 7 inches separate the top 3 cities. Only a tenth of snow separates Buffalo and Worcester now for 2nd place.. The bad news is that the early snow season favorite Syracuse is almost 2 feet behind the current leader. The double bad news is that I pulled some cities like normal during the second half of the season.
I have been thinking about pulling some cities from the snow contest for a couple of weeks now. The first cities that came to mind were obviously Erie, Buffalo, Worcester and Grand Rapids
Nothing against the cities I pulled but I’ve been getting a couple of updates in each day for a good part of the season and it’s a little too time consuming. In other words it’s pulling me away from my other websites which I count on to eat, lol No I don’t need a Wambulance and I’m not whining, I love doing this but between the 2 snow contests, doing research, updating and so on, a normal day is between 6-8 hours and normally more when the big storms hit. Again, I LOVE it but reality sets in
By pulling some of the cities which I will check from time to time to see how they are doing I can save a little bit of time. OK, That is my plea for forgiveness and hopefully none of the cities were yours. If one of them are and you will lose sleep over it then let me know and I’ll put the city back in I did leave a couple in that most likely don’t have a chance for the fact that I know people from those cities visit the website on a daily basis. I also get emails every now and then from people serving overseas that check from time to time to see how their city is doing so those cities stay and hopefully I didn’t pull any of them.
I have done this for the past few years and again I do keep an eye on them to see if they should be added back in. Below are the cities that were pulled this time around and again, let me know if there is a problem
St Paul, Minnesota – They have their Twin In it Still
Washington DC – Done well previous seasons only 3.6 inches
Indianapolis, Indiana – Never liked them, I’M JOKING! Only 8.5 and Indiana well represented…
Boise, Idaho – Previously dropped & added back in a few weeks ago. Nothing since so dropped again..
Columbus, Ohio – Ohio is well represented already…
Amarillo, Texas – Cool that they received 17 inches but nothing since.
Pueblo, Colorado – The lowest snow totals of the Colorado cities in contest to date.
Salt Lake City, Utah – Normally a contender but only 6.8 inches on the season.
Feel free to flame away and have an awesome day everyone
