A cold front originating in the Gulf of Alaska delivered periodic rain showers to La Cañada Flintridge on Tuesday and left the San Gabriel Mountains dusted with snow. The forecast for the storm led to the closure of Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon to Angeles Crest Highway, and of a portion of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road. Some La Cañada areas interfacing with the Station fire debris flow area prepared for the storm with sandbags. But no significant rainfall totals were recorded, with Descanso Gardens reporting 0.07 inches as of Tuesday afternoon.

Snow fell on the Southland Thursday night, but it was not enough to open a local ski resort. Mt. Waterman, located about 34 miles north of La Cañada Flintridge, needs at least two feet of snow to drop. On Friday, the hill had about 6-8 inches. The resort never received enough snow to open last winter season. Owners are hoping that a cold front from Canada will blanket the region this weekend. “The storms are coming,” said Beth Metcalf, the resort's ticket sales manager.

Scouts from Troop 501 traveled to Lee Vining Canyon earlier this month on an adventure very few would even consider. At an elevation of 8,000 feet and in heavy snowfall the boys, leaders and a Sierra Mountain guide hiked into the canyon and proceeded to build snow shelters. These were built by mounding snow much like a haystack and, once it was hardened, hollowing them out. The boys then spent the night in the shelters. This experience is one the scouts will not soon forget.

From a vantage point in La Cañada Flintridge, Mt. Wilson looks clear of snow, but what one can?t see is the snow that covers the north face of the peak. It is this winter blanket that has kept the Montrose Search and Rescue Team members busy the last two weekends. ?March 2 was an extremely busy day,? said Mike Leum, a longtime rescue team member. The team was first activated at noon on a call concerning a 20-year-old mountain biker with a broken leg. The cyclist was on the road near Red Box and Switzer Falls when he fell from his bike and injured his leg. The team responded at first with assistance from Los Angeles County Sheriff?

"The Gift" Is A Perfect Christmas Read "The Gift" by Pete Hamill The temperature has dropped below 0, the dreamy lights of Christmas reflect on the fallen snow of Brooklyn's streets that are stampeded by the hustle and bustle of shoppers, school children and workers heading their way to their local bar for a drink. It is Christmas in 1952 and 17-year-old Pete is home from the war in Korea. The latest letters he had received from his girlfriend Kathleen made his stomach fill with nerves and his anxiety grew worse when he was the only solider off the train without a girl to meet him. Even his parents weren't there, but in those times you were lucky if your family had a telephone and his did not. Pete's father was an Irish factory worker and had always been a distant man to Pete.

Colorado Adventure, Part II Well, the good Lord was willing and the creek didn't rise. I'm back! Here's more about this Colorado adventure. If you read me last week, you'll remember my students and I were heading toward the Rocky Mountains to learn about western history themselves, and how to survive on the land. Driven by the love of novelty, Colorado opened its doors and we lumbered into the primitive wilderness of the San Juan range. The rain had dampened everything but our spirits.

“Hey, Mary, do you want me to go out and bring in the mail? I just saw the mail truck stop at our box.” Another day of reliable mail service. We residents of La Cañada Flintridge are served faithfully by our letter carriers. We expect our mail to be delivered to us six days a week in the morning or in the afternoon. Day in and day out, nothing stops the trusted postal patrol bringing our letters, catalogs, checks (we need more of these, please) and bills. Ugh. I had the opportunity last week to meet with Roslyn Strawther, our postmaster since 2009.

Rainbows and green lawns are the result of last week’s rainstorms that, according to Descanso Gardens, brought in 4.6 inches of rain from Feb. 3-10 to La Cañada. And there is more on the way. “Looks like rain starting on Friday all the way through, on and off, to Presidents’ Day,” said Stuart Seto, weather specialist at the National Weather Service. “And it looks like there may be another [storm] coming in on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.” It appeared that La Cañada drivers were getting used to the wet weather conditions.
