...have at last been revealed.
Part of my job is to "pitch" story ideas. Not just the big announcements, but individual features that are only offered to a single reporter with a particular interest.
Here's a pitch from last year that Chad from WFIE-TV never forgot.
Chad is a meteorologist and was intrigued that Will likes weather gadgets. The equipment we've collected over the years really makes a difference in our severe weather preparedness.
Mrs. Koch was laughing as she chatted with Chad about years ago when she used to stand in the Christmas plaza under a big umbrella, scanning the skies for lightning.
As the park has grown, we've created a severe weather plan, which includes moving our Guests into shelters when there's rough stuff on the way.
To see Chad's story, click here and scroll down the "14 News Top Video" box for the story titled "Emergency: Local theme park shares stormy weather plan."

This sort of post usually finds its way to our other blog, but the photos are so wonderful, it seems more appropriate to use them here on the HoliBlog.
My family has been going to your park for many, many years. My grandparents used to visit back when you were called Santa Claus Land. Generations have come and gone to your park. For the second time we will be taking my daughter to your park to celebrate her birthday. She will be 14 this year, and when asked what or where she would like to go for her birthday, your park was the first place she picked.
Anyway, I was going through my parents' old photo albums gathering pictures that we wanted to scan for preservation, and I found these two pictures that I wanted to share with you. They were developed in November 1955, but I do not know the date of the visit. One picture is of my uncle and cousins...
Thanks so very much for all the past and future memories!

Wedding proposals are personal and private.
For some, anyway.
Mine was while gazing out the window together at a winter moon. Our 25th anniversary is in August.
Our oldest son just got engaged. His beloved adores animals, so Tom took Lena to the Indianapolis Zoo.
Tom liked the idea of proposing in front of the penguin exhibit. You know ... all those tuxes would provide an air of formality.
Not bad for a engineering-egghead kind of guy.
(I'm happy to report our dear Lena said "yes.")
Do you know someone who's getting close to proposing? Someone who's a little crazy? (Okay, enough with the marriage jokes...)
Just make sure the ring will fit. The last thing we all need on Bakuli's opening day is an engagement ring going "down the drain," right?
