The weather is surely causing havoc all over the eastern half of the country. It does sound like a great conference and how nice that you were able to team up mother/daughter wise and present such interesting DNA & Genealogy topics. You must be so proud of your daughter (and I am sure she is proud of you +Kathy Reed).
