You know what it looks like when you dump an overflowing ashtray into the toilet? Multiply that by about a bazillion and you’ll get an idea of what the water looked like coursing down the Arroyo yesterday. No, an oil tanker didn’t somehow overturn in the Hahamongna Watershed. This black water is the result of […]

A storm blew in yesterday afternoon — the opening act of today’s main attraction storm system. Most of South Pas looked gray except for this lovely tableau on Meridian. The National Weather Service says these storms may be the biggest since 1998’s El Nino floods. Meteorologists predict 8 to 16 inches in our nearby foothills– […]

Does this announcement surprise anyone after the shameful treatment he received from the South Pasadena City Council? (You can read my first post about this issue here.) The story goes […]

After the day’s chaos settles down, an ambient lullaby lulls the city to sleep. It’s a wonderfully ordinary collection of sounds — a lonely dog whining on a back porch, a loose muffler sputtering up a hill, the nearby thunk of a car door, the distant wail of a siren.

I felt a little guilty hanging out at the top of this hill while the runner on the right huffed and puffed up from the bottom. People all over town are lacing up new sneakers and keeping those new year’s resolutions. Me? I just take more pictures… Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South […]
