With rain pouring down in quarter-sized drops, the Camellia Festival Show held at Descanso Gardens over the weekend was lightly attended on its second day. Van de Camp Hall was all set up with a fantastic display of camellias, but the rains kept the crowds from arriving Sunday. ?We did have a pretty good day yesterday, though,? said Wayne Walker, chief horticulturist at the Gardens. On Sunday the exhibition hall sat empty except for Brad King, president of the Southern California Camellia Society; Linda Troyer, Society member and Descanso?

Stage 7 of the Amgen California Tour, which began at noon today (Sunday) in Santa Clarita and winds through the Angeles National Forest and La Canada Flintridge on its way to the finish line near Pasadena's Rose Bowl will proceed as originally planned, tour organizers announced. There was some concern that stormy winter weather, including a chance of snowfall at the higher elevations of Angeles Crest Highway, might cause a rerouting of the tour, but conditions were deemed clear enough today for the cyclists to follow the original route to complete the tour.

On Monday I traveled from record-breaking 105-degree heat in Tucson into 55-degree coolness and rain in La Cañada Flintridge. What a quick change, but a very welcome one. I went to visit Jackie Manning, a former longtime La Cañadan. Jackie and her late husband, Whipple, were actively involved in our La Cañada social scene when they lived here. Jackie, an extraordinary host and tour guide, led me to a lot of surprise wonders in this desert city. We packed a lot of sight-seeing and cultural experiences into a short amount of time.

Since I wrote about my addiction on this page a few weeks ago - a daily hike in the national forest, generally starting before sunrise - a number of kindly people have said, “Aren't you bored, doing the same thing every morning?” Honestly, no. It's true that I was quite shocked last summer to realize that, although I have hiked most of the obvious trails in this area at one time or another, I must have taken the nearest one, which starts at the Angeles Crest fire station, several hundred times.

I'm writing this column before Thanksgiving Day, but you will read it on turkey day or over the weekend. I hope you have a wonderful holiday. I'm excited to celebrate this Thanksgiving with my extended family - all 25 of them. I can provide details next week. The stormy weather last week certainly provided some autumn ambience for us. Of course I loved the chill that made me feel that maybe I really was going to go "over the river and through the wood" to be with my family. Curious about this saying, I researched it a little further.

The unthinkable happened -- it rained on our parade! After a 50-year hiatus the rain came down in buckets on Colorado Boulevard. The stormy weather didn't dampen spirits of the people marching down the parade route or even the spectators -- there were plenty of smiles to go around. In the parade's 116-year history it has rained only nine times. Here is the best part -- our city's float entry, "The Great Howldini," was a trophy winner! Our adorable and magical dog floated away with the Theme trophy for excellence in presenting the parade theme, "It's Magical."
