Observation start time: 09:15:00 
Observation end   time: 14:00:00 
Total observation time: 4.75 hours

Site Coordinator: Terry Angevine

Observers:        

Weather:
Temperatures started below freezing and barely warmed to above freezing
before the count ended.

Observations:


Terry was "holding down the fort" today by himself, as Calvin's season
ended yesterday.  In short, Calvin was at the watch almost every single
day of the season.  Knowing that the last few days of November can be slow
and cold, the Board of Directors thought it would be a nice gesture to let
him "off the hook" a few days early so he could spend Thanksgiving with
friends.  We figured it was the least we could do!

Calvin, on behalf of the Board of Directors and everyone else at SMRR,
thank you for a great season!!!
