Pensacola/Mobile/Biloxi Meetup, once this ridiculously cold weather eases up?

I'm thinking February or March, maybe in Gulf Shores, so it's equally inconvenient for everyone. Who's in? I'll coordinate, if there's interest.

I grew up in Gulf Breeze! I would meet you all if I could, but alas...Houston.

A fellow in Colorado wonders: what exactly is "ridiculously cold" in Biloxi et al? Honestly, I've never been down there, and sometimes wonder. We hear mythic tales of people who put on sweaters and down coats if the mercury drops below 87° Fahrenheit, but I somehow can't believe that's true.

@koeselitz while it's true my grandma wears a scarf when it drops below 50, it's 23 this morning with a windchill of 12. which is cold enough that even my friends in Toronto stop making fun of me. ;)

After seeing The Shed BBQ on FoodTV last night, I'm ready to make the drive to Ocean Springs, MS.

koeselitz, it was 21 this morning for me. 21. That's obscene, in this part of the world. I think it's actually illegal in MS for it to get that cold.

One of the coldest mornings I ever spent was at the beach on Perdido Bay, one January.
