Not from here...not today

These are pics my oldest daughter took and sent to me a few days ago from the west coast...she and a friend went here to hike...for the life of me I cannot remember the name of the park. Just look how those kids are there without their shirts...can you imagine being able to do that around here in the middle of January? I immediately thought of George and Betsy when I seen the waterfall...according to Daughter, this is the smaller of two waterfalls in this park. She and her friend are going to have to go back to find the larger one.
I just love the view the feel of the place. I would love to be able to ramble around there and see what I could see....
A major winter storm is headed our way, ice comes first--maybe up to an inch of it....then as far as inches of snow, right now they are saying 3-5 inches. Just west and north of here...maybe an hour away they are saying up to nine inches of snow, but less ice.

I knew ice was headed our way tomorrow evening/night but had not seen the actual forecast till tonight. But knowing the ice was coming, we decided to make a quick run over to Indianapolis to see Lorelei and her mommy. She was in high form today...really tickled and excited to see us. I figure I better enjoy that while it lasts!!!

She danced and she sang and she jabbered....hardly still a single minute. She also has an old cell phone that she plays with...and she is always pretend talking to her Da-da! You can tell from that that he sure rates high in her world. And some of the faces she makes are priceless...and she is doing them on purpose to make us laugh.

As you can tell, it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
