Early December marks the start of party season in La Cañada Flintridge. We light the gazebo in Memorial Park and the big tree in Glenola Park. Christmas lights go up on fences and houses, street after street. The parties begin. There are parties of all sorts.

Tea at the Thursday Club on Woodleigh Lane. Chanukah latke feasts.

Last year by November we were in the middle of an almost record breaking deluge of rain. This year is quite a different story -- it has been more like an endless summer with temps in the high 80s and low 90s. At least the nights have a chill to them, which breaks the monotony a bit. Most spectacular of all has been the crystal clear air with thanks going to a slight Santana wind condition. The mountains have been so sharply defined one can almost count the leaves on the trees along the ridgeline.
