At least it shouldn't be as humid as Nashville---for the benefit of
those from milder climes such as Canada (:-) Personally, I felt right at
home there. 

The great benefit of Nashville for me was that I got to go at all.
I had to pay my own way this year, so driving over made it a
reasonable excursion.  Of course, I'd have done the same for any
southeastern location.

NB: if you want humid, wait'll you get to DC in the summer! I was mildly
amused at the open board meeting by the juxtaposition of

(1) complaints about the heat/humidity; and
(2) the number of hands that went up in approval of DC as a site.

I'll freely admit that there's more to do in DC and a wonderful
transit system to get you there.  I'm looking forward to it,
since I'm already acclimated...
