The Conference, which had been scheduled for February 9 and 10, would probably have been snowed-out by the storm of February 5 and 6, but the storm of February 9 and 10 came along to make sure that we all stayed home.

Delaware GIS 2010 is Postponed

Monday, February 8th, 2010 by mike.mahaffie
February 9, 2010toFebruary 10, 2010

Because of the heavy snow that fell on February 5 and February 6, which is still snarling travel in Delaware today, and because more snow (and maybe freezing rain) is forecast for February 9 and February 10, the Conference Planning Committee has decided to postpone the 2010 Delaware GIS Conference.

A new set of conference dates will be announced later this week. They will likely be in March. Please stay tuned for updates over the next few days.

And please stay safe and warm and off the roads unless a) you need to go out, and b) you know what you are doing when driving in this sort of thing.
