Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

June Gloom provides cover during a season that in less pleasant climes can be downright sweltering. But it's not always very photogenic. However, one Redditor had good luck on a day where the haze was low enough that the tops of the Hollywood Hills and the Hollywood sign were peeking out.

June Gloom isn't just an occasional stunner, it's good for native plants and staving off wildfire. That's why it's not a good thing that we're seeing less of it these days.
