this is why

Yesterday was one of those days that makes those of who live in Los Angeles say "this is why we live here". I wrote a while ago about the glow to the light in LA that is different than anywhere else. The clear skies in LA after a rainfall are another one of those things I've never seen anywhere. After a rainfall here (which generally only happens between December and March), the sky gets this crystal clear quality - the sky is a rich blue, and objects look like they are all incredibly close and almost within reach. Snow capped mountains out in the San Gabriel Valley seem to spring up behind downtown. They're calling for rain again tomorrow. Should make for a beautiful Saturday.
