Last week we had a little taste of winter in Southern California. There was a brief powdering of snow on our mountain tops. I was driving to Pasadena last Wednesday afternoon and the panorama of our San Gabriel mountains was so beautiful. They were in sharp focus against a bright blue sky filled with puffy white clouds that resembled a flotilla of blimps. It was pretty darn cold, too, with our temps dipping into the low 40s (it could have even been in the high 30s) at night — that is certainly cold for us. Thankfully, it does get warmer as noon rolls around.
Socially, things are humming right along for our LCF folks. A group of art aficionados gathered at the Pacific Asia Museum for an afternoon of inspiring art gallery viewing and a lecture by Jay Belloli, the guest curator of the exhibit, which is part of the Getty Pacific Standard Time initiative.
