That was a great forecast and was close. I congradulate pjc368 for the fantastic job the person did.

As far as my forecast goes... BGR station killed my sum squared. Was fun.. hope to do it again soon.

I remember pjc from the WX boards @ AOL and how I used to give him such a hard time for the nonsense he would post...but Big-time congrats to Pat!
