If you've lived here for the last couple of years, you've already talked yourself numb on the subjects of Heidi, Michael Jackson and you-know-who. * Now, you're talking rain. When's it gonna stop? Where's it gonna flood? Or--as everybody was asking under Thursday's dry but still sulky sky--when's it gonna rain again? "I think it's gonna start again tomorrow night," said Tod McLean contemplatively as he stood in a Chevrolet auto parts store in Cerritos. "And this one looks like a big one."

They spent the last week in our living rooms, marveling at a seven-day forecast with real weather, endlessly replaying the Mega-Doppler radar and relishing the sheer wetness of it all. Fritz and Dallas and a man named (Johnny) Mountain. They have done the local weather so long, they can be identified by one name. They're as comfortable as your old rain boots. But how do L.A.'s weathermen keep it fresh, after chasing clouds and cold fronts for decades?

I read Howard Rosenberg's April 8 column, "The Soggy Envelope, Please . . . ," with much interest. I enjoy the weather programs, with this exception: It seems they are being used as springboards to show biz. I wrote Fritz Coleman and suggested (because so many of us are here from somewhere else) that we might enjoy hearing about the weather in Paris or London--all over the globe! There's time for it--the weather here is always the same. I received a thank-you. That was that. Well, Maclovio Perez and Dallas Raines are educated weathermen.

A woman who used to serve on the Los Angeles police force was sentenced Thursday to 90 days in County Jail and three years probation for stalking a KABC-TV weatherman. Martha Cane, 41, could have faced up to a year in County Jail for stalking Dallas Raines. It took a Glendale jury about 30 minutes last month to find her guilty. Deputy Dist. Atty. Mark Kim said he recommended the maximum sentence against Cane "because this was a very serious offense."
