We Survived SQL Saturday #132, Pensacola

Relaxing in a Tallahassee Spring Hill Suites, I am reflecting on this weekend’s trip to Pensacola.  Why Tallahassee?  This SQL Learning trip was turned into a long weekend with my wife.  We decided to split our long ride home in half and enjoy an extra day unwinding, relaxing in the pool in sunny Tallahassee especially since we did not get to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast.  We are already planning to return to Pensacola for next year’s SQL Saturday.

After yesterday’s flooding with the declaration of the state of emergency and driving around a flash flood only to find myself in an intersection that was about 18 inches deep, I can easily say that we survived SQL Saturday #132.  However, I wouldn’t trade the experience as I arrived back at the venue in time to give my first ever presentation (I left because I was soaked from head to toe in order to put some fresh dry clothes on).  I also got to spend some time with a couple of great MCMs and meet a handful of new people to add to my #SQLFamily.

Next week, after I return home from this trip, I will blog some of the things I learned in some of the sessions and the pre-con.  Until, then relax and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
