Weather in the Foothills

“Even when the sky is filled with clouds, the sun still shines above.” 

~ Janet Donaghy

This week’s column is dedicated to the Crescenta Valley kids remaining “Safer At Home.” Listed below are a few very carefully selected weather-related websites. Although intended for the school aged, I found myself absorbed in their content. Entertaining? Yes, but, most importantly, they may prompt a much-needed trip outdoors … fresh air, exercise, Vitamin D and peace. Plus being educational, they are teacher approved!

For ease of use, consider going to for direct website access.

With spring comes its weather. In the upcoming days temperatures will be cool. Lots of good clouds will be passing through, bringing intermittent rain showers.

Now, go outside and play!
