    Before I saw the photo credit, i thought - that must be LA - and it is! Our mountains here maybe have the lights of ski slopes, but not an entire metropolis at their feet!

    It's a photo from the Mount Wilson Observatory that over looks the LA basin, the San Fernando Valley and some parts of the high desert. I have been up in that area on a cold windy night and you can see Catalina Island - 26 miles off the coast.

    If you are so inclined, during the winter, you can start go play in the snow in the morning and be at the beach in a pair of shorts and flip-flops in the P.M. to watch the sun go down!!

    I'd take a tea by the fire. Darn cold here the last couple of days. Supposed to have a chinook roll in tomorrow and warm things up.

    We have cold, flurries, in general, it's winter.

    Dear NWS: It doesn't count as "flurries" when you can't see the barn down the street.
    Steady 10-15 MPH winds don't count as "gusts" (though it does sorta count as breezy up here on the hilltops).

    In honor of winter having made its appearance, hot donuts right out of the fryer for all.

    The promise of fresh donuts even got an Angelpup out from under the blankets!
