Bloggus Interuptus

Apologies for the lack of posts last week, but I was away from the Ranch, honing my legal writing skills at a workshop in DC. Unfortunately, the underlying theme of the week appeared to be "go out and be the best advocate you can, but it won't really make a difference, anyway." Oh, well.

I have to say that I really like DC, even if it does suffer from one-area-code syndrome. ;) It's a big city that doesn't really feel all that big. The idea that we have consciously created a space for our seat of government is kind of neat, too. The Fed doesn't share the spotlight with anything else in town. And of course, it's home to the best soccer team in the country.

But they have no idea of how to deal with snow. Once I hit town Tuesday, the TV news was a twitter with forecasts of an imminent "storm" that would dump inches and inches of snow on the DC area. As the region braced for it's blast of winter, many schools closed - before the first flake fell. In reality, about 2 inches came down, which really isn't enough to phase anyone who deals with the white stuff on a regular basis. And folks living on relatively flat land have no room for complaint.
