Comparison Golden Snowball
City Stats 1940 - 2007

Stats Put together by Steve Madsen

[The link bar feature is not available in this web]


This new section is probably one of the coolest on the site for the fact that it compares all the Golden Snowball cities dating back to the 1940 - 41 season.  Remember the snow contest didn't start until the late 70's by meteorologists in Rochester.  That's what I think is pretty cool is we get to go back and see who would of won if the GSB contest started way back in the 40's.  This section all happened thanks to Steve Madsen who resides in Buffalo and took the time to gather all the stats from NOAA and put them together. A Big Thanks Steve for the
