The Big Chill: Icy Conditions This Morning In Silver Lake

My Charlie Brown Ninja figurine with KickYerButt action (don’t judge) proves it got cold enough at our Silver Lake-based domecile last night to freeze the surface of the “frog pond” solid enough to support his weight… until it didn’t. Fortunately I was able to resuscitate him after he fell in. And return to being totally fascinated by this minor example of a cold-weather byproduct that is the utmost in trivial to most of the rest of the nation.

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."
