Weathering the conference

Finally--

The weather in Pittsburgh earlier this week was just unbelievably wonderful. Sunny and 73 degrees Fahrenheit every day. Of course, people who've spent time in Pittsburgh know that this kind of thing is pretty rare.

One running joke throughout the conference was various speakers saying some ironic variation on the line "And of course, the weather is always like this!" This happened easily three times a day in different meetings. The most groan-worthy had to be at our closing event under the tent at Schenley Plaza where the chairman of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy board said the obligatory remark. That was OK, but then Bill Peduto, a city councilman, arrived late from another event and, not ten minutes later, did it again.

There were a lot of eye rolls after that one.
