Things Could Get Interesting, Is It Snowing There

I can’t honestly say I am looking forward to a 50 plus degree drop in temperatures in the next 24 hours give or take but it is what it is.  I guess if the cold front that is coming through has to happen then hey, it may as well drop half a foot of snow on Syracuse, NY :)

Just a quick post to ask that you leave a comment in THIS post to keep us updated.  I also put some blocks on some comments to stop all of the spamming I get here so if you can’t post please let me know through the contact page.

Let us know if you have some time if it’s snowing in your neck of the woods.  Erie, PA still holds a good lead over Syracuse and Buffalo but the next day or two could make the contest a little more interesting than it is right now.  What a difference a day makes in the northeast!

Have a Great Day All ;)

When Does The National Snow Contest End

There are two things that have scared me since day one of starting up the National snow contest. One, am I missing a big city that gets a ton of snow and two, am I calling the contest too soon?

The reason I worry about the second, when to wrap up the snow contest is because with my luck one of the cities will get some fluke snow storm in May or June. If the snow contest isn’t close I don’t worry so much but when it is close I tend to stress a little over it. The main reason is because the chances are good that some of the news media will be reporting it and I can see me calling the winner, the news reporting it and then another city goes ahead a week later:(

OK, so when does the contest get called? I’m hoping sometime at the beginning of May depending on what the long term forecast looks like. I think the longest we have gone is May 15th and the reason was because the Colorado cities were making a last minute charge up the snow mountain. This season they are way toward the bottom of the mountain so I don’t see that happening this season. Right now for this time in the season Erie, PA is looking pretty good with their lead of 5.5 inches over the next best and last seasons snow champion Syracuse. I don’t believe any of the cities on top of the snow mountain average that much snow for May so the beginning of May is looking good right now.

Those of you that follow the snow contest on Twitter will be one of the first to know when I call it so if you don’t follow you may want to. Our local paper in Syracuse and Erie, PA Life on Facebook will also be the first to know. Both have been awesome to the snow contest and it’s appreciated. Let’s just hope I don’t blow it :( Erie has held the lead most of the season and I will feel bad if Syracuse goes ahead at the last minute. I’ll fell bad but I’ll get over it. Hey, I’m from Syracuse ;) Good Luck to Both and let’s not forget Buffalo, NY!

The reason I worry about the first is because I don’t list all of the big cities that get snow for the fact that it would take too long to get updates in. I know there are some cities in probably in the Carolina’s that have gotten snow and others around the country but during a normal season it will never be enough to compete with the big snow makers. This season was anything but a normal snow season with many cities breaking all time records. Cities like Billings, Montana who had the most snow ever since records have been kept and there are several others that have had the same kind of season. Seasons like this get me a little nervous ;)

Important – I have been spending hours upon hours dealing with spam comments to the website. This is something I deal with every day of the year including all through summer. I just added a plugin that should hopefully help but I am a little worried that some legitimate comments from those of you that post may be blocked also. If that happens please let me know by contacting me through the contact page so I can make some adjustments. Hopefully you won’t have any problems and that this saves me hours of browsing through all of the spam that I get here.

A BIG Thanks to Carol G. for her donation that we received. Last month I was overwhelmed by the support the site received from a lot of you. Last month alone was more than the site has received in total since we started it a few years back. It’s nice to see the appreciation carrying over into this month and Thank You again to all of you and Thanks again Carol, I truly appreciate it :)

Have a Great Day Everyone :)

Printer Ink Cartridges Business and Personal Bank Checks Cheap

First I want to give a BIG Thanks to Carol G. for her donation that we received. Last month I was overwhelmed by the support the site received from a lot of you. Last month alone was more than the site has received in total since we started it a few years back. It’s nice to see the appreciation carrying over into this month and Thank You again to all of you and Thanks again Carol, I truly appreciate it :)

Shameless Plug so be warned but Please read so you can save some cash - Even though I was able to put probably between 30 – 50 hours a week into the snow contests this season this isn’t how I make my living. Well it’s kind of similar seeing how I have ads on the snow sites but I have several other sites that are for shopping. I deal with a lot of merchants that are online including printer ink stores and bank checks, both personal and business checks. In my opinion in most cases those are two of the best shopping deals online. Both of the companies below pay me a commission for every sale I send them so all I ask if that if you need to purchase either of them, please come here and do it each time and feel more than free to share it with the world ;) Joking, just friends and family. This helps out just the same as the donations do and Thanks in advance.

2 of my favorites are below and I do personally shop at them when I need ink cartridges for my printer or when I run out of checks for my checking account.


Save on Your Personal and Business Bank Checks


As for the bank checks you can save 50% or more off of what your bank may charges us unless of course you get free checks. Personally I like the checking place below. They have a big selection because they deal with several check companies plus they also have an A+ rating with the BBB. For those of you that like themes they carry checks, matching checkbook covers, address labels and more in all kinds of different themes. I always get my Syracuse University logo checks there and they do have other college teams including Pitt, Penn State, Michigan and others. They also have a ton of other themes like Animals, horses, flowers, sports such as baseball, football, soccer, scenery checks and many others to choose from. Make sure you look at the special link on top which I think was currently between 10 – 20% off the already great price. It was something like 10.00 a box if you order 4 and just a little more if you order 2. Either way it’s worth checking them out below.

Save Big on Your Printer Ink Cartridges and Laser Toner


As for the ink store below it all depends on your brand of printer as to how much you will save. By buying generic brands or remanufactured you can save anywhere from 20 – 80% off. I buy mine here, have used them and have been happy for many years now. Plus they have something like a 100% guarantee for up to a year or something. Make sure you look for the current specials on their site also to save even more. Just pick your printer brand such as Epson, what type and the model. It’s that simple and you will also save on supplies for your office including fax ribbons and cartridges for your copiers.



OK, the time I think has come for some of the cities to start getting a little bit nervous about Erie right now. Erie is heading into April with a decent snow lead of 5.6 inches over 2nd place Syracuse, NY. Keep in mind that it’s not over until the fat man sings and the chances are that the earliest I may be singing won’t be until May 1st, maybe a little bit later. I will admit that as the days go by I do find myself humming more and more each day ;) It’s still snowing in several cities and I think even the top snowiest cities will be getting a little more. The question is just how much more. Stay Tuned ;)

Have a Great Night All ;)

Finally Stopped Snowing in Syracuse Just Enough Though

First things first, a Big Thanks to Tina R. for your donation. We really appreciate you taking the time and as we’ve said many of times it helps out a lot. Thanks again Tina :)
——————————————–
Updated 4/1 12 AM – Just a heads up to all of those that emailed me and posted a comment. Yes this was just an April Fools Day post. Erie is still kicking butt and to be honest is looking pretty good right now. There was no snow in the Syracuse area and Yesterday was a Beautiful day in Da’Cuse. Erase that 8.3 inches on Syracuse’s totals ;)
——————————————

Media, Be Warned – Updated Today 10 AM – The sun is are starting to shine now so most likely the snow band has lifting back to the north but at least it dropped just enough to put the pressure back on Erie, PA :) It looks like we are going to be going back and forth for a bit. Hard to believe it’s suppose to hit the 50′s here in Syracuse today but it’s warming up fast. The good news is that when I woke up today the neighbor did my driveway for me so no shoveling :)

Rochester only picked up a couple inches, nothing for Erie or Buffalo and the 8.3 inches was what the stats were showing for Syracuse. Most likely no more will be added to that total come the later day update.

Lake Effect Snow in Syracuse 3/31

3/31 5 PM - The Lake Effect that they were predicting finally stopped or should I say finally panned out. So many times this season the lake effect snow bands would just hang to the North of Syracuse, drop down a little but stop before it reached us. This band was probably the best we have received this season dropping 8.3 inches so far according to NOAA. The good news is it’s suppose to be nice tomorrow. The bad news is that this snow is the wet and really heavy snow :(

I’m still waiting for the snow stats to come our for Rochester to see how much Lake Effect they got. When I looked at the radar earlier this evening it didn’t look like Anything was going on in their neck of the woods So most likely Syracuse should hold on to the lead. For now anyways.

Stay Tuned and have a Great Night ;)

It’s a Three Way Race For King of The Snow Mountain

Updated 3/30 6 PM - Looks like all of the totals are in from this last blast of snow. The snowfall totals from the storm below were updated from earlier.

So here is the lowdown on the top 3 cities right now. Erie leads Syracuse by 5.5 inches and leads Buffalo by 8.4 inches. Still a 3 way race ;)

Syracuse’s lead over Buffalo, NY has been melted down to just 2.9 inches now. Man is it close and stay tuned!
—————————————-

3/30 3 PM - Erie, PA, Buffalo, NY and Rochester, NY all got some snow and a decent amount of it for this time in the season. So far nothing is being reported for 2nd place Syracuse. I know, there is still more snow to add to the snow totals and I’ll get a top 10 update in later on when The National Weather Service comes out with the next update. Here is what they are reporting total from this last blast of snowfall.

Erie, PA – 4.0 inches
Buffalo, NY – 5.6 inches
Rochester, NY – 8.6 inches
Cleveland – 5 inches (Broke into top 10)
Syracuse, NY – Notta, Null, Zip, Zero, 0.00 – They must have forgotten to measure the snow before the airplanes took off :(

A couple of things stand out from this last blast other than Erie adding to the lead that is. Buffalo is definitely in striking distance now of taking over 2nd place and perhaps even storming to the top to take the grand prize. Oh yeah, the grand prize of a virtual trophy or something plus a virtual pat on the back for a job well done of course ;)

Rochester is closing in on 4th place and should only be a few inches away from Grand Rapids, MI when the next update comes out from what I have heard and read. Even if Rochester doesn’t take over the 4th place spot they gave themselves a pretty good lead over Billings, Montana now and look pretty secure at finishing in the top 5 this season. Maybe Billings has something to say about that though.

I’m loving how this contest is playing out this season and it’s going to be a little bit sad when Syracuse pulls out the Lake Effect Dance like last year and goes snows to the top like last season. I will sincerely feel bad for Erie and the friends I have made from there the last couple of seasons ;) Stay Tuned!!!

Have a Great Day All :)

WJET 24 in Erie Catapults Snowballs Back at Syracuse and WSYR TV 9

First Off – A big Thanks to Jack Y. for your recent generous donation to the site. As always I cannot say enough how much I appreciate it and how they do offset the costs of the site and time spent on it. I’ve received many donations this month that have helped out and it’s nice to know that the site and hours that go into it is appreciated. Thanks again Jack and to the rest of you :)

3/28 Erie Sets up The Catapult and Fires Away - It was Erie, Pa’s turn to launch some snowballs in the direction of Syracuse this time and Dave Belmondo was more than happy to step up to the snow mountain and fire away :) If you read below you will see that Andrew Donovan from Syracuse’s channel 9, WSYR was the first to throw a snowball at David Belmondo and the city of Erie. Erie who is in first place right now with some more snow in their forecast wasn’t going to just sit by and take the pounding from second place Syracuse, NY. Below are both video’s of some fun back and forth going on between Erie and Syracuse. Ut Oh, Erie has even gone a little further than Da’Cuse looking for a little help from Bishop Persico, lol. I’m loving it and Let the snowballs fly ;)

——————————-
3/27 Syracuse Launches the First Attack – The snow race got a little bit closer this last update and once again Erie can hear footsteps coming up the snow mountain. Syracuse has closed the lead to just a little over an inch now and no doubt time is running out for all of the cities. Erie is still the King of the snow mountain as they have been most of the season.

I’m liking that some of the local news stations are starting to throw snowballs at each other and Syracuse started it yesterday with Channel 9 in Syracuse doing a little bit of trash talking with David Belmondo from WJET in Erie, PA. All in fun of course and that’s what the snow contest is about. Here is a clip of that and lets wait and see if David Belmondo has a few snowballs up his sleeve to toss back at Syracuse. Kind of seems like I am trying to instigate a good snowball fight doesn’t it ;) Of Course I AM!!!

I think I heard something about part 2 on Channel 9 news in Syracuse with Erie’s respond tonight. Stay tuned because I’m reading about more snow in the air come the end of the weekend. Have a Great Weekend Everyone :)

Mother Nature Sneezed Again Erie’s 5th Snowiest Season Ever

First Off – A big Thanks to Jack Y. for your recent generous donation to the site. As always I cannot say enough how much I appreciate it and how they do offset the costs of the site and time spent on it. I’ve received many donations this month that have helped out and it’s nice to know that the site and hours that go into it is appreciated. Thanks again Jack and to the rest of you :)
—————————————
Updated 3/26 2 PM - I think if Syracuse ever goes ahead of Erie again I am going to get Mother Nature some antibiotics to take care of that sneeze once and for all :)

Erie, PA has jumped back into the snow lead as of yesterdays snow stats from NOAA and the crown is still warm from the last time they were the King of The Mountain. Right now Erie has a 2 inch lead on last seasons snow champ, Syracuse, NY. It’s starting to feel like I am watching a tennis match with all this back and forth going on right now rather than a snowball fight. Will that 2 inches be enough to hold off Syracuse come the next update a little later on?

Syracuse received some snow but most of it was after midnight which isn’t being reported yet. Erie may also have some more snow to add to their totals so it should be interesting come the next update.

Erie also received enough snow to make this their 5th snowiest season on record. They now have 133.1 inches on the season passing the 1993 – 1994 snow season which had 131.3 inches. WTG Erie and Congrats ;) Stay Tuned!
——————————————————-
Updated 3/24 - I said just a week or so ago that the snow race was so close that all it would take is for Mother Nature to sneeze over Syracuse for them to take the lead. Ummm, God Bless You Mother Nature ;) Syracuse has taken the lead away from Erie, PA and is now sitting alone on top of the snow mountain. Don’t worry though Erie, maybe Mother Nature has a cold and all it will take is another sneeze for you to be back on the top of the snow mountain.

This is the first time since around the middle of December that Erie hasn’t been the Snow King. Time is running out but cold air is still in the forecast for at least a few more days if not more. Only 2 tenths of an inch separate Syracuse and Erie from the top spot now. No doubt this will be/is one of the closest contests we have had so far. WTG Syracuse ;)

Congrats to Billings, Montana on setting the record for the snowiest season ever on record. Billings has had 99.1 inches of snow fall so far this season breaking the old record set back in the 1996-1997 season of 98.7 inches. WTG Billings and that 100 inch mark is right around the corner or should you go for a HOT 101.9 for the season ;) Thanks for the heads up McLovin from HOT 101.9 in Billings, Montana. Maybe they should give away a prize if the season ends at 101.9 inches. Come on, put up Hot 101.9 :P

Stay Tuned and Have a Great Night :)

Breaking News – Syracuse Finally on Top of Snow Mountain BUT

A big Thanks to Shanna K. for your donation to the site. I really do appreciate it and I will be getting back to you shortly to help you out with what you are looking for. Thank You Shanna :)
———————————————————-
Updated 3/21 5:30 PM - It looks like we have a New King of The Snow Mountain for the first time in more than 3 months. WAIT, We actually have 2 Kings of the snow mountain right now ;) Syracuse, last seasons comeback city has now tied Erie and is sharing the top spot as of the last update from the National Weather Service. What a run for Erie, PA on the top of the mountain and they still don’t want to move. WTG Erie! It’s not even close to being over yet and is still up for grabs. Go Syracuse, Go Erie :)
———————————————————

Can Erie hold on that long though is the question? Syracuse has melted away most of Erie, PA’s lead now. Erie leads Syracuse, NY by just a few snowflakes. As of the last update the lead was cut to just 0.3 tenths of an inch. Maybe a better question is can Erie hold on when the next update comes out. It’s been snowing off and on in the Syracuse area and if it hasn’t been snowing in Erie there is a good possibility that we may have a lead change for the first time in a long time. IS IT SNOWING IN ERIE?

Looking back at my snow stats it looks like Erie, PA has held on to the lead since at least December 15th, 2013 which is most likely the longest any city has held the lead since I started The Golden Snow Globe. The last city to hold it before Erie was Billings, Montana who was the King of the snow mountain on December 11th, 2013. No doubt it will be interesting come the next update.

Below are some good stats going up until March 13th, when Dave sent them to me as to how the season has played out so far between Erie, PA and Syracuse, NY.  According to Dave and the stats below Erie, PA had their biggest lead over Syracuse on January 17th with 28.7 inches.  Thanks to Dave Meyer for putting the stats together, Thanks Dave :)

Erie Loses and Inch – Snow Contest Does NOT End Come Spring

Just a heads up for our visitors and the Media. The snow contest lives on after the first day of Spring whether we like it or not :(

To my good friends in Erie, PA, remember I am just the scorekeeper, don’t hurt me. You may have noticed that You lost an inch.  If not all is good then :)   Well you did and you went from 130.4 to 129.4.  I noticed sometime a week or so ago when I was doing an update that Erie snuck in an inch on the rest of us.  I figured it was a couple of days since I did an update at that time and didn’t think much of it.  For some reason this last update that inch has gone missing.  I know what you are all thinking.  Sure an inch just ups and melts away and the scorekeeper just happens to be from Syracuse ;)   Nah, this has nothing to do with me so don’t start loading the buses up to come throw snowballs at me and my house :(

This is all The National Weather Service and it does happen from time to time during the season.  Just think of all the numbers they are crunching and inputting to their system several times a day.  It’s happened several times to some of the cities in the middle but I normally don’t bring it up.  Because the snow race is so close I figured I better explain it ;)   Keep in mind this could have been an adjustment to a mistake made when they added the inch of snow or it could just be a mistake was made yesterday and Erie will get that inch back.  I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.  I think just having to talk about that inch of snow shows how close the National Snow Contest is :)

A lot of the cities most likely will still receive snow after the first day of Spring starts. The closer the contest the longer we tend to drag it on and this season is about as close as it can get with under an inch of snow separating Erie, PA and Syracuse, NY. Most likely both of those cities along with several others will be getting more snow. Last season was a good example where if we would have called it the first day of Spring we would have called it wrong as to which city was the snowiest. Syracuse ended up getting something like 10.5 inches around April 2nd. Here is how the end of last season pretty much played out.

Erie, PA Still the Snow King Lead Getting Smaller

————————————————————-
Erie, PA continues to camp out on top of Golden Snow Globe Mountain and I’m guessing that they have been there so long they probably have a ski resort built by now :) Can Erie continue to hold on to the top spot for another month or two? No doubt all of the other top cities blew a good chance to catch up to them the last several days. Syracuse managed to melt away only 7 tenths of an inch off the lead. For the most part all of the cities have been taking a break from the snow including Grand Rapids, Buffalo and Billings who round off the top 5 snowiest big cities in the US. After a couple of days with the temps above freezing and two days in a row with the sun shining, at least Here in Syracuse, I’m thinking just give Syracuse 10 inches and let’s call it a wrap :)

Sorry about the lack of updates but I have really been letting my other work slide lately. I barely looked at my shopping websites in the last 6-8 weeks because of the snow and time spent on this site. I’m loving it though and enjoying every update I do and I am also loving the fact that the snow race is really close again this season. It could get interesting in the next week…

Warning, Shameless Plug Ahead – That said I did need to take a few days off from here to start a new project which is a new Printer Ink Cartridges Online website. It’s still in the beginning stage but I was able to get about 25 hours into it :) For any of you that purchase your printer ink online for home or for your business all I ask is that you check out the site and shop through there. The merchants give this snowman a little bit back in return for me sending buyers to their stores. You can order supplies for your printers, all in one printers, copy machines and fax machines. I’ll be adding more merchants in the next couple of days along with more coupons to help you save even more. Generic – compatible ink cartridges and laser toners are one of the best buys online and I have been personally buying mine online for about 12 years now give or take. Most if not all of the merchants I’ll be adding to the site also offer a 100% guarantee on their printer products. You can check my ink site out Here at Printer Ink Cartridges – OK, End of Shameless Plug ;)

Have an Awesome Weekend All!
