getting a message from workspaces that I don't understand.

workspaces asking me if the StreamReader is wraped into a Using statement and it is. Don't know whats missing.

            {

            }
            return weatherForecast;

        }

It looks like you found a challenge bug! :beetle:

Apparently the challenge doesn't like the space between the open parenthesis and the keyword "var". Remove that space and you'll pass.

You might want to report this bug to Support. It could get you a "special Exterminator badge".
