It had been the fourth straight day of coping with El Nin~o, and it was getting to me. I was tired of fighting traffic snarls, avoiding mudslides, navigating flooded streets. Why not head to the mountains, I thought, and trade the wet stuff for white stuff and cross-country skiing? This was a radical shift in my thinking; when I moved here five years ago from the East Coast, I hadn't cared if I ever saw snow again. Now El Nin~o was making it look good.

LAKE ARROWHEAD -- As flames ravage surrounding communities, this resort town high in the San Bernardino Mountains emerged largely unscathed, an island in a sea of destruction. The credit for that isolated victory, federal officials say, should go to firefighting tactics, shifting winds and favorable terrain -- and a sometimes controversial U.S. Forest Service effort to eliminate the tinder that fuels forest fires.

I love ice skating, especially ice skating shows where all I have to do is watch: triple axels, quadruple toe loops, lay back spins, death drops that leave you shaking your head in admiration. Fortunately for me, I have a companion in my ice dreams, my mother. So when Mother told me that Olympic and World Champion ice skater Michelle Kwan was kicking off the summer series of skating shows at Lake Arrowhead, I was ready to go.

Their mission was to save Arrowbear. And although the winds had flagged Wednesday, the flames that roared out of the backcountry continued their march toward the hamlet in the San Bernardino Mountains, testing the tools, backs and lungs of the Big Bear Hot Shots, a frontline Forest Service crew that fights fires by hand. When things got desperate, when all the hoeing and shoveling could not stop the fire's advance, the team called in Chris Ivey and his dead buddy's bulldozer.

We went in search of snow. It did not seem an unreasonable quest. It was late January, after all, and we looked toward the mountains, where snow is often found. Our two children had made it through the holidays, through all the white-mantled tales and movies and songs, patiently accepting our promises of post-New Year sledding and snow forts. We chose a weekend when those who live in snow country said the odds were pretty dang good.

Some vacationers flocking to San Bernardino Mountain resort communities for the long President's Day weekend are finding their cabins flooded with water leaking from pipes that burst during last week's frigid weather conditions. On Friday, the Lake Arrowhead Community Services District, which provides water and sewers to 5,000 houses, shut off water supplies to 250 homes with broken pipes in an effort to curb water losses.

Autopsies are planned later this week to determine whether carbon monoxide or natural gas, possibly from a furnace, killed a Pasadena man and his son in their Lake Arrowhead vacation home, officials said Tuesday.

While thousands of neighbors fled the burning mountains around him, Scott Garrett ignored a mandatory evacuation order to try to save his 6,000-square-foot home on a hillside west of Lake Arrowhead. Inside: a stash of movie memorabilia, including a large winged angel statue from the Ben Affleck movie "Daredevil" and a costume from "Planet of the Apes." Garrett, 48, a semiretired movie studio art department technician, filled large buckets with water and sprayed his wood deck with fire retardant.

Column after column of dark smoke shot high above the tree line, spewing soot and ash, and Mary Salzwedel knew that each eruption signaled the loss of another home. "We watched the homes go up one by one," said Salzwedel, 58, who had just fled her own house Monday with her husband and puppy as separate fires tore through Green Valley Lake and neighboring Grass Valley, near Lake Arrowhead.

Several environmental groups filed suit Tuesday against the county and the developer of a 57-home project near Lake Arrowhead that supervisors approved last month. The lawsuit contends that the Hawarden Development Corp. project is too dense for the area's steep terrain, would destroy southern rubber boa habitat, has an uncertain water source and is at high risk for fire.

A Lake Arrowhead water district has illegally pumped millions of gallons from the lake to its 7,500 customers over the last three decades, harming recreation as well as water rights holders on the Mojave River, a state board announced this week. The State Water Resources Control Board found that the Lake Arrowhead Community Services District does not have municipal water rights, despite having siphoned water from the lake since 1978.

If there's a silver lining to last year's devastating Southern California wildfires, it may be that denizens of picturesque Lake Arrowhead and surrounding communities in the San Bernardino Mountains are learning to see the forest for the trees.

San Bernardino County fire officials complained Wednesday that their efforts to protect homes near Lake Arrowhead during the recent wildfires were hampered by narrow roads and antiquated building codes that still permitted homes to have wood-shake roofs.

After holding their preseason training camp on the other side of the continent for two years, the Kings are coming home. The only problem is, all of their big-name stars will probably remain on the other end of the continent. The Kings have announced that, as anticipated, they are moving their training camp from Hull, Quebec, to Lake Arrowhead. They will spend eight days there beginning Sept. 6 before embarking on an eight-game exhibition tour.

Past blackened lots, past rows of chimneys marking the spots where houses once stood, the convoy of creatures traveled back to their own ruined home. Two raccoons, a pair of black bear cubs, a coyote and a great horned owl returned by pickup truck last week to Wildhaven Ranch, an animal sanctuary that, like many of its neighboring human dwellings, burned in last month's wildfires.
