Syracuse Still King of the Snowiest US City Contest

First off congrats to Green Bay and Pittsburgh on making it to the Super Bowl! That’s twice in a week that Pitt busted my bubble. Once beating my boys the Syracuse Orange and the second time beating my favorite football team the NY Jets :(

As far as the snow contest goes Syracuse has managed to hold onto the lead so far with a little bit of snow in the forecast for this week. Hopefully the storm to the south will move inland a little but as of today it’s not looking like it will. Things could change though ;) Here in Syracuse it was something like 13 below zero this morning and places to the north and around Syracuse were a lot colder than that. Rochester, NY is still knocking on South Bend, Indiana’s door but just can’t seem to slip ahead of them.

There was some slipping around in the top 10 but only one city dropped out and that was Erie, Pa. They got bumped out by Worcester, Mass has been moving up the snow mountain along with Boston pretty good the last few updates. Just 3 updates ago they were in 32nd place and now they are #10. I dropped several cities from the All Snowiest city section that really haven’t been doing much and still have to add a few. I figure I can always add them back if some storms start up. I did look up a few of the cities and if you want to suggest any to add to the contest remember it’s cities with a population of 100,000 or more. Dropped from the list are below.

South Bend, Indiana is Snowing on Syracuse's Parade

It’s snowing or at least was in South Bend, Indiana and they moved up the snow mountain big time. Cory dropped a post about the snow and sure enough they are closing in on Syracuse, New York. Hopefully it is still snowing there and they will close the snowflake gap even more. Just light snow in the Syracuse area right now but they are under an advisory which could keep things interesting.

Rochester and the rest of the pack dropped down the snow hill a spot with the record snow that South Bend picked up. They set a date record yesterday with 26 inches of the fresh white stuff blowing away the old record set in 1978 with 7.9 inches of snow. Myself, being from Syracuse, I’m loving the fact that the snow contest is finally getting close. WTG South Bend and there is still a ton of time left for some of the other cities to make a move……

Just a storm or two and hopefully there will be several other cities closing in. Have a Great Week All :)
