Manhattan Beach Pier956 viewsTaken 12/20/05
Several storms out in the Pacific were beginning to affect Northern California with heavy rain. These same storms were causing heavy surf all along the coast. A large west-northwest swell continued to affect the outer coastal waters of Southern California today. Breakers of 8 to 12 feet, with locally higher sets, pounded the coastline. Here you see the waves crashing against the end of the Manhattan Beach Pier

Our Regular Bear955 viewsCritters are alive and well on Holly Slope. This Bear makes regular visits. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. Usually around Midnight. Leila and I ran into him one evening near the circle around 11pm on a late walk . Fortunately he wanted nothing to do with us and took off running across the dirt lot towards the ravine.

The Crawling Eye934 viewsDoes anybody remember the old movie "The Crawling Eye" ? Or did I just embarrass myself ? The fog here is rolling over the Verdugo Hills and into the La Canada / La Crescenta Valley. It looks as though it is heading straight towards Jet Propulsion Laboratory located in the lower right of the photo.

Rays928 viewsTaken 4/17/04
A fast moving cold front moved through Los Angeles today bringing about .24" of rain and a high temperature of only 55 degrees at my station in Altadena. Light snow was reported at Mt. Wilson. This photo is looking West from Altadena at the La Crescenta area above Glendale. A break in the clouds let the rays of sunshine through. A beautiful day.

Bob Westphal926 viewsThis is the photo I was trying to recreate. As you can see i didn't get it exactly right. This is my Dad in front of a B-17 in Europe.
Thanks to the wealth of information available on the Internet, I found out that "WALLAROO" was part of the 303rd Bomber Group and flew 35 Combat Missions before being shot down Jan 14, 1944.
Glad my Dad wasn't on it.
