Hiya - San Diego is friggin expensive, and we don't have a small campus feel at all. Robert McDonald and I worked out the costs a few years ago and we'd be almost double what Asheville conf cost folks.
It's killing me not to have you all out to paradise in Feb, but I can barely afford to live here :)

Actually there is a clear line (at least on the eastern half of the continent) where the further north you go, the *less* snow you got this. Buffalo is trailing a number of places on the east coast in total snow accumulation and Toronto has been dusted a few times this winter, with nothing of real substance. Detroit and Chicago were well below seasonal averages last time I checked.
ALL of that said, where are the San Diego gang or the folks from Miami?
who can only dream of pubs with open patios in February
