Updated 2/3 Noon - The National Snow Contest is really starting to get close as Worcester, Mass has closed the snow lead that Erie, Pa had. I think this storm was the storm of the season so far for the fact that it effected so many cities and states.
All it took was a couple of decent snow storms for Worcester to come from wayyyy behind to once again reclaim the second place spot on the snow mountain from Buffalo, NY. Those two cities have been going back and forth and every now and then Grand Rapids, MI has jumped in. Right now it seems like Worcester has Mother Natures attention and she is being quite kind to them, or not.
Erie, Pa was the 1st city to hit the 70 inch mark followed by Worcester, MA and Buffalo needs just a few more snowflakes to join the 70 inch club. It looks like Erie will be the 1st this season to also hit the 80 inch snow club needing less than an inch to do it.
As I mentioned before it’s Still hard to believe that not so long ago on 1/21 Worcester, Mass was in 27th place in the National Golden Snow Globe contest with only 13.9 inches on the season. As of the latest update they are at 72.6 inches. The combine snow totals of the 2 snowstorms that hit Worcester is right around 52 inches give or take. This all happened in just a weeks time. Even the smaller snow belt areas like The Tug Hill have to be somewhat impressed I would think. WTG Worcester
