First as always I want to give a Big Thanks to John A. for your recent donation to the snow site. Even though the season is winding down, the bills still need to be paid throughout the year. Thank You John, I really appreciate you taking the time and it helps out a lot :)


Syracuse and Worcester Share Top Spot in National Snow Contest

It’s official according to the National Weather Service as of yesterday’s snow stats we have a tie between Worcester, Massachusetts and Syracuse, New York. As of Right now the score is 119.7 to 119.7 :)

So for Now, Congrats to Syracuse on playing catch up and getting just enough snow to move to the top of the Golden Snow Globe mountain. Worcester has held the top spot alone for quite some time now. Let’s hope that Worcester is happy to have some company (Not) and that both of you can play nice together.

I’m guessing that both Syracuse and Worcester are still making snowballs in hopes of at least one more snowball fight to see which city can claim the bragging rights as the snowiest Big city (pop of 100,000) in the United States.
Don’t forget about Lowell, MA either because it won’t take a whole lot of snow for them to sneak past both Syracuse and Worcester.

Good Luck and Stay Tuned ;)

The new snow stats are out and the lead has changed again.  Syracuse piled up just enough snow to push Erie, Pa down the snow mountain.  Syracuse is now the King of the snow mountain but I don’t think this will last too long.  Not if Erie and some of the other cities have a say in it.

The big news was obviously the snow storm Nemo who for some reason went from being a cute little guy that turned into a monster shark.  The North East coast get hit pretty good with Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and other states getting pounded by Nemo.  A lot of the cities from those states also ski-jumped up the snow mountain from the bottom to near the top now.

The city I thought that had the best chance to take the lead was Worcester, Mass.  They gave it a good shot and moved into 3rd place.  Boston also jumped up quite a bit along with the cities from Connecticut.  Bridgeport went from 25 th place to 5 th in a matter of a day.  Hartford also jumped into the top 10.  Providence move way up and the list goes on and on.  Click about to see how all of the Golden Snow Globe cities did this last update.

HAve a Great Weekend All.

First off a Happy New Year to All of Our Visitors ;)

Syracuse has taken over the top spot on the snow mountain this last update. Just a week or so ago they were at 3 inches on the season but added another 33 inches to move into first place and be the first city to hit the yard of snow mark. After the 3 days of shoveling this guys back decided to slip out so I’m kind of hoping for a little bit of a break from shoveling. Yeah, I’m a sissy man and you would think living in the snowiest big city (pop 100,000 or more) I would have a snow blower after all of these years. Maybe next season ;)

A lot of the cities added some new snow to their totals. I think all but about 3 – 4 cites had some new snowfall to add up. Ohio, Rhode Island and Connecticut seemed to be the states on the move upward on the Golden Snow Globe mountain. Colorado is still pretty quiet and so was last years snow champ Anchorage, Alaska.

Looking across the country there is still some cold air spread out all around the US. That could make for another interesting update come the next update. What I’m still liking is the fact that it’s really early in the 2012 – 2013 snow season and there are quite a few cities still within striking distance of the top spot. Good Luck and Way to Go Syracuse! Hay, way to go Syracuse football and basketball and it will be interesting to see if Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim can pass Bobby Knight’s record tonight with win over Rutgers for win number 903. Good Luck coach B and thanks for the 50 years at SU.

Have a Great Week All and Drive Careful :)
