OK, it was fun watching Billings, Montana climb the snow mountain the last week or so but enough that’s enough snow now. Now you are messing with my home town Syracuse, New York I suppose I may as well cheer you on now seeing how you just passed Syracuse and it looks like you are still climbing the snow mountain. OK, Might as well go all the way to the top to make things exciting and I think we are well overdue for a change of the throne. No offense to Grand Rapids of course but there haven’t been a whole lot of lead changes this season.
So far there have only been 4 leaders in the national snow contest for the 2014 – 2015 snow season. Out of the 4 leaders Grand Rapids has by far been sitting at the throne at the top of the snow mountain the longest. That said the snow contest has been close all season long with just a few inches separating some of the top snowiest cities in the U.S..
Here are the cities that have led so far this season and when they held the lead. Keep in mind the dates are give or take a day depending on when an update was done during the snow season.
Anchorage, Alaska – 10/20/2014 – 11/14/2014
South Bend, Indiana – 11/14/2014 – 11/15/2014
Erie, Pa 11/15/2014 – 11/18/2014
Grand Rapids, Michigan 11/18/2014 – Current Leader
Billings Montana continues to move up in the National Snowiest Big City Contest with a population of 100,000 or more and has just jumped another couple of spots. Billings just slid past Syracuse and Buffalo, NY to take the number 3 slot in the contest and from reading around there may still be more snow on the way for them. There was quite a bit of shuffling around with a lot of the cities adding some snow to their totals the last couple of updates.
Sioux Falls, South Dakota has moved up quite a bit the last few days and broke a date record yesterday picking up another 5.0 inches of snow breaking an old record of 3.9 inches on the day set back in 1951. WTG Sioux Falls, SD
Have a Great Day Everyone and Stay Safe – See Snow – Drive Slow unless you’re on a sled of course
