Of Local Interest: Finally, rain, and no fire season

Of Local Interest: The Lost Angeles Area is experiencing its first rain in six months. We got lucky this year, unlike last year, and there was no significant brush fire season.

The U. S. Forest Service recently took the rather drastic, not to say entirely unprecedented, step of closing the Angeles National Forest to virtually all public use in the nearby mountains. If we are to take at face value the stated claim that the only reason for this was the extreme fire danger, there will be no excuse for not lifting this restriction at once now that the rainy season has officially begun.
