Anchorage, Alaska Starts 2015-2016 Golden Snow Globe Contest

Congrats Anchorage, Alaska on being the first Big city with a population of 100,000 or more to receive measurable snow. That can only mean one thing and like it or not the new 2015-2016 Golden Snow Globe contest has started up again. I hope everyone had a Great summer and maybe if we get lucky the summer will drag on into January. Don’t hold your breath though ;)

Anchorage, AK which received 0.3 inches of snow on September 29th and added another 2.5 inches of snow on September 30th for a total 2.8 inches of snow for the 2015-2016 season. Snow isn’t that unusual for Anchorage this early and their normal snowfall to date as of today is around 1.4 inches. Fairbanks, Alaska is showing a little over 20 inches so far this season. It’s probably a good thing that Fairbank’s population is just a little over 32,000.

So far Anchorage is the only Big city to receive measurable snowfall this season but there are a few other cities that have had at least a trace of snow. The most surprising in my opinion is that Chicago, Illinois is showing a trace which according to one of our visitors to our site Michael, it was a mix with hail that happened August 2nd.

The other cities that have had at least a trace of snow or wintry mix as of 9/30 are Billings, Montana and Colorado Springs, Colorado. I’ll have to take another peek to see if any of the other cities have received a trace of snow in the last week or so.

I’m really not looking forward to the cold weather that is right around the corner but I am looking forward to having fun with all of you like we always do :) Let’s have some fun once the 2015-2016 snow season gets into full swing and before we know it Spring will be popping up in no time.

Have a Great Day All ;)
