Point-and-click puts DCA at freezing at 3am.  :(

Chin up, DCA will probably stay above freezing the whole night somehow.

The 2019 First Freeze Contest has come to an end!  DCA hit 32 early this morning.

@yodaand @mappy have tied!  Both had a departure of 14 total days.  But this is America!

The tiebreaker this year was summed total October precipitation at all 4 airports.  @mappy went with a continuation of our dry September and only forecasted 8" total.  @yoda went a little wetter with 12.26".  But the real total smashed both those numbers, with 23.5" recorded.  In this case, close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and the Mid-Atlantic first freeze tiebreaker!  Which means @yoda wins by tiebreaker!

@mappy obviously comes in 2nd place!  @MN Transplant, who unfortunately had the poor luck of trying to rely on DCA to hit 32F before midnight last night ties for 3rd place with me, your humble contest organizer, with a total departure of 15 days.  @Rhino16 rounds out the top 5 with a departure of 17 days.

I finished near the bottom. Disgraceful.

Congrats to the winners!

Congrats Yoda.  If only I would have picked Richmond the same day as the others. #lessonlearned
