For VisitorsPosted: October 12, 2014
This is the first time the conference has come to my city, and much as I want to brag it up, there are a couple of things you need to know.
The weather. It will rain, most likely, but not hard. And it won’t be that nasty cold kind of rain — just a nice mild drizzle.
The traffic. It will suck, at least on Friday during the morning and evening commutes. Saturday should be okay. Most people won’t be driving away from the hotel, but if you do, I recommend checking to see how full the roads are if you’re going to be trying to get someplace on time. This is a good link for that.
Those strange blue squares with the number 12 in them that you see hanging all over the place? That’s about the local football team, who will be playing out of town on the day after the conference. We’re kind of crazy about them, maybe you’ve heard.
On the bright side, we’re very nice, mostly because there are so many transplanted Minnesotans here. We have all the coffeeshops you could ever want, and the seafood is amazing.
