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 ;)

Have a Great Day All and Watch Your Back Erie, Some of Us Are Getting Ready to Storm The Mountain ;)

Watch out all because here comes last seasons runner-up Worcester, Massachusetts charging up the snow mountain. For those of you that may not have been around the Golden Snow Globe site last season it was a super close snow race right to the very end. Unfortunately the end never came until something like May 31st because all of the Colorado cities decided to make a late charge.

If I remember correctly and trust me my memory is shot, last season Worcester held a pretty good lead come March and the battle at that time was between Erie and Syracuse fighting for second place. Syracuse looked to be out of the contest at one point but managed to get some fluke lake effect snowfall, about 10.5 inches in April which even for Syracuse is pretty much unheard of. Here was the headline on April 2nd of last season. BREAKING NEWS – Syracuse Plows Past Worcester and Erie :) Let’s hope we hear that again this season.

OK, enough rambling and the point I am trying to make, I think, is don’t count Worcester out of this seasons contest. They are battle tested and proven and the question is do they have enough snowballs left to win the snowball fight this season? Keep in mind also that Worcester, Massachusetts is one of those cities that know how to pick up any snow that is hanging around them and they almost always get in on the coastal storms.

Right now they are a ways behind the current King of the snow mountain Erie but they are climbing pretty fast. I don’t even think they were in the top 20 at the beginning of this month but have moved up to #7. So far for February and it’s not over yet Worcester has piled up 38.2 inches of new snowfall. Their total right now for the season is 77.6 inches putting them 32.9 inches over their normal total to date which on average is should only be 44.7 inches. They are also 10 inches over last seasons total snowfall for this time in the season which was 67.5 inches of snow. Yup, I would say that those of us ahead of Worcester, Mass should be watching our backs right now for their sneak attack ;)

Have an Awesome Night All ;)

I just updated the top 10 snowiest cities section and it hasn’t gotten any better for Syracuse or Erie. Worcester continues to hold a decent lead with their seasonal snowfall totals now at 108.9 inches. They added over another inch to their lead. Way to go Worcester ;) I’m starting to see quite a few visitors lately from Mass visiting the site and a warm welcome to all of you. OK warm welcome doesn’t quite sound right does it.

It hit me as I was scraping the ice off my call this morning that today marks the first day of Spring. I’m not quite sure where it is Spring but it sure doesn’t seem like it in the North East does it? Keep in mind that the national snow contest lives on well past the first day of Spring for the fact that Mother Nature tends to get a little confused some years and drags the snow on into April. I believe a couple of times even into May.

Right now it’s looking pretty good for Worcester buttttt…. Keep in mind that most likely the Lake Effect Machines are most likely still running for Syracuse and Erie. That said in my opinion it will be tough to make up over a foot of snow in the next few weeks plus the way it’s going the chances are that if we do gain on Worcester they will just throw in another coastal to blow us away again. Good Luck and Have a Great Week :)
