Rays1181 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.

The Crawling Eye1173 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.

Originally delivered as a civil passenger plane, the DC-10 can carry a whopping 12,000 Gallons of Fire Retardant. It can drop it's load in 8 seconds in a line 300 feet wide and one mile long!

The Bear Is Back1166 viewsThe Bear is back after a short hiatus. I had heard that Bears don’t hibernate in warm climates like Southern California but maybe this one actually did hibernate for a short time.

He was actually on the street 3 nights in a row this week. He got into trash cans on a couple of nights and left a large pile of Scat in the street. Leila was excited. She was picking up the Bear’s scent on our morning walk.
