more snow talk

Last night, D and I were talking about his days living in Michigan. He was describing the weather there in detail, and just how much it snows. He hates winter, so he always says he hates Michigan too.

(We went to visit Michigan once in July, and ended up sitting outside for dinner, next to a space heater!! I loved the weather up there because I hate summer. I hate being hot).

But my point is that while snow is a common occurrence up north, in STL it’s still somewhat rare for us to get big snow storms like this, and that makes snow feel delightful and magical to me. I’m grateful for that. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Let it snow!! ❄️❤️❄️❤️


  • I’m having fun with all the snow puns. Haha.
  • It started yesterday afternoon and it hasn’t stopped.
  • We spent our afternoon yesterday by the fire, reading, and watching the snow fall while two cardinals flew around. It was beautiful.
  • I had a hard time sleeping due to what I call snow glow — the room was bright despite the blinds being down. Normally I use my phone as a flashlight to get to and from the bathroom in the middle of the night, but that was not necessary. I could see clearly.
  • Bizzy is so happy. This is the most snow he has ever encountered in his life, so he’s outside frolicking. If you want to see pure joy, watch a husky running around in the snow…though it’s less running and more hopping because of how deep it is. It’s adorable.

depo day (finally)

I defended a depo today in one of my big Chapter 7 cases. (Finally! It had been continued three times.) It got a bit heated as these things tend to do. Attorneys like to yell at each other after all. It took all morning. I’m ready for a beer!

Turns out my friend’s office was on the same floor so I popped in to chat with him for a bit. The view from his office is incredible.

This was the same view from the depo conference room. So at least there was that.


I forgot the Balloon Glow is this weekend. Seeing these in my neighborhood was an unexpected delight.

We went a few years back with the kids and it was really cool. Crowded as fuck though. Like CROWDED. AS. FUCK. Haha.


Finally decided to try this newish place in the CWE because who knows how much longer I’ll have an office around here.

I got the spicy tuna bowl. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It’s nothing close to the poke I had in Hawaii, but this is high quality shit considering we’re in fucking Missouri.

I’ll def order again. Especially since GrubHub delivers it!
