The sky was up to its old tricks and even offered up some new ones Wednesday, as Orange County was hit with a combination of hail, wind, clouds, sun--and even snow. The latest storm that dumped rain on most of the region brought a sprinkling of snow on lower-than-normal elevations, including Saddleback Peak, which was dusted with a fine coat.

They are the Charlie's Angels of rural China. When the weather is nice, they daydream about pink lipstick and pretty things to wear. When the weather turns nasty, they snap into action, blasting artillery into the sky and pulverizing the enemy before it strikes. Farmers in this remote pocket of north-central China have been at war with the elements for as long as they can remember.

It snowed in the San Fernando Valley Tuesday for the first time in five years, an unusual occurrence in itself, never mind the rain, hail and thunderstorms all in the same day. "It's just an unusually strong spring storm, like something you'd expect in the winter, and even kind of strong for that," said Curtis Brack, a meteorologist with WeatherData Inc., which provides weather information to The Times.

Southern California residents reveled in a late taste of winter Saturday as an Arctic storm brought sporadic hail and snow to the foothills, prompting spontaneous snowball-flinging, driveway-sledding and snowman-building. In many areas, snow munchkins was more like it, as sculptors could muster only enough of the white stuff to fashion creatures a few inches tall. The storm defied National Weather Service expectations that the snow level could dip as low as 1,000 feet in the Southland.

They're calling for rain today, but that's no surprise. Predicting rain on a summer day in Mexico City is like forecasting death in an old-folks home. It's bound to happen. From springtime to autumn, it rains a lot here. Let me be clear: a lot. The Mexico City government issues the same monotonous forecast each day: 80% or higher chance of rain. The only suspense is whether it will come with lightning or hail. It's the same almost every afternoon — you could set a clock, if the power hasn't been knocked out. People schedule outdoor parties early, knowing that by late afternoon, the storm clouds will prevail.

Grape-sized hail pummeled the city on Tuesday, blanketing downtown streets, startling drivers and pedestrians, and piling up to 4 inches deep at an amusement park. Motorists pulled over under bridges or into garages and pedestrians scrambled for cover to avoid being pelted. Brazil Redd, 21, was outside when the rain and hail began, her car being towed after a hit-and-run collision. "It hurt. I probably got bruises. It was huge," she said. "I got soaked."

My perception of Clinton is that he is only a front for Hillary. Hail President-in-fact Rodham! This leaves Vice President Al Gore a lesser role than John Nance Garner, Franklin Roosevelt's veep, which is about as least as one could get and still be in politics! SHIGEO YUGE Los Angeles
