And the winners of the Resume Contest are…19 Feb , 2012 | 0
To all of those folks who signed up, thanks for participating in the FreshAJ Resume contest. We had a great turnout and I’m writing today to share the results with you. But before I do…let’s recap to our readers what the contest was all about.
The participants had to forecast the max and min temperatures (2) days in advance for Ann Arbor, MI municipal airport and Portland, OR Int’l airport. The contest date was for Feb 18th. I picked Feb 18th to make it a little challenging for our participants because both cities had cloud cover and timing of fronts to deal with. And I have to say I was quite impressed with the results. Nobody was off by more than 10 degrees for each city and it was pretty darn close.
So let’s get to our results. Here’s what was observed for Portland, OR and Ann Arbor, MI per the NWS airport observations for each respective city over the 24 hour period.
Ann Arbor, MI
So, first I’ll list the top (3) participants who were closest to the min/max for each city…and then I’ll narrow down the overall results to (2) winners.
The Top 3 for Portland, OR:
1) Jeff Nelson: Max: 46F, Min: 41F
2) George Lange: Max: 46F, Min: 40F
