One step towards San Diego

Greetings from West Lafayette. We left yesterday morning as the weather report wasn't too good for Tuesday (and indeed, a weather advisory for Ann Arbor starts at 10 this morning). We had a few snow flurries in Michigan, and despite sunny skies there was ice on I-69 going towards Ft.Wayne,IN, but we made good time. The temperature bounced around between 7 and 13 F. rising to a heated 16 degrees as we finally approached Elaine and Larry's house.

Elaine had cookies waiting for us in the kitchen, and a great dinner with See's candy as a finale.

Lenny says it's just like the Hobbit travels in Middle Earth: we go through a perilous journey and then find temporary shelter where it's warm and everyone is good to us. We are calling these places ElaneAndLarian and RubyDell. (If you aren't a fan that would be Lothlarian and Rivendell in Middle Earth). We haven't figured out what Fort Worth TX will be in Middle Earth terms.

Thanks, Ellen! I wish we could swing by Las Vegas, but it will have to wait for later in the year.

Thanks, Louise! I hope you have a great holiday too.
