I’m not talking about Britney Spears either. Believe me she’s a hell of a lot cuter than I am. I mentioned in other posts that this being the first national snow contest that mistakes are going to be made. That’s a promise This year is sort of a test run so feedback and suggestions are more than welcome. A big slip up was pointed out to me tonight on a site I came across, dcist.com with the Washington, DC snow stats. I have no problem with just myself making a mistake on the site. Trust me, I’m use to it by now but it bugs me when other sites post or quote stuff that I screw up on.
Anyways the mistake I made was using the snow stats from Dulles instead of National in DC which turns out to be a huge difference in snowfall. I think my major in high school was detention and not geography which should explain a little bit about me
What bothers me the most is that a couple of articles were posted online going by the site so if you came across any of them the blame lies here and not with them. OK, enough groveling and begging for forgiveness
National is the airport now for DC and the chances are there are probably a couple others that may need to be changed. If you come across any jump right in to let us know about them. As for populations don’t bother about that now. My main goal to get the site started was to find cities with pops over 100,000. In other words if your city’s population is listed here at 230,789 instead of what may be 240,777 I’m not worried about that right now. Sooner or later we will have more recent city populations listed. OK, enough for now and again keep the input coming.
A shout out to the posters at http://dcist.com/2010/02/dc_area_now_claims_second_highest_s.php for cluing me in about the Washington,DC area and who know, they may be right back up there after this storm is done. Snow hats off to dcist.com and and syracuse.com for having fun with the snow contest and again it was my bad and not theirs.
