Snow Day

One of the coolest (literally!) of our house’s bonuses is the view to the north it offers the day after one of these rare arctic storms blasts through. This one not only dumped two inches of rain on our roof, but dusted the ridgeline of the San Gabriels with snow as seen from our kitchen window (albeit via a 300-mm lens; click for larger size).


It makes me that much more eager to get our upstairs master suite started and completed –  whose second-floor vantage point will make it all the better to enjoy future views such as this.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
