We'll gladly relinquish the trophy. I've got no more room on my mantle.
Syracuse, N.Y. -- It's like the No. 1 seed getting knocked out in the second round of the tournament.
Syracuse, traditionally America's snowiest big city, has just been upset this season by Lakewood, Colo., thanks to a massive blizzard in the Rockies and Upper Midwest this week. Lakewood now sits atop the Golden Snow Globe contest as the snowiest city this season with at least 100,000 people.
It's a narrow lead: Lakewood has 72.6 inches to Syracuse's 72.2 inches. But Syracuse has no measurable snow in the forecast, and March is the snowiest month of the year in many parts of Colorado.
