So now that we did our little bit of Florida (We miss you Pensacola), it was time to head back to New Orleans and actually stay this time. We checked into our room and and set out to meet old friends at the conference. The hotel seemed to keep the temperature just above freezing, and we could not wait to get outside any chance that we could.
