Summertime and the living is easy

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

It's easy to forget that it's winter around here. You probably didn't even notice that today is the winter solstice. Yesterday temperatures in LA reached 80 degrees, just 3 degrees lower than the highest ever recorded in the city (that was in 1985). Not that we're complaining; in fact, we'll be busting out the sunscreen. If you're thinking beach, you're not the only one: LA Observed tells us that waves are up today — way up. In other parts of the city, they've got below-freezing temperatures, a transit strike and rain. Who picked the right place to live? You did. Now go on — enjoy it.
