It was around noon in Lake Havasu City and the temperature was approaching a high of 107 degrees. But it was still considered a relatively comfortable day by folks in the western Arizona town, where summertime highs usually reach into the searing 120s. "It just isn't as god-hideous as it's been in past years," said Jill Bersell, manager of Lake Havasu Roofing Inc. "Some years you can't even go outside."

A prolonged drought has created ideal wildfire conditions across much of the West and Southwest this summer, alarming forestry officials, who already are dealing with an unusually high number of fires. Nationwide as of Saturday, officials have reported 54,686 fires charring more than 3.2 million acres this year, according to the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho. Both figures are the highest in at least a decade for the same period.
An afternoon of singular brilliance slipped away briefly from Ohio State freshman middle linebacker Andy Katzenmoyer in the rain when Arizona State quarterback Jake Plummer scampered out of his grasp and ran 11 yards for a touchdown to put the Sun Devils ahead by three points with 1:40 remaining in Wednesday's Rose Bowl.

The Arctic storm front that had been in such a hurry to get ashore was reluctant to leave Tuesday, bringing Southern California cold showers, hail, snow, thunder, lightning and wind as well as some all-time low readings for daytime temperatures. The blustery wintry weather triggered by a cold upper-level air mass was blamed for the Tuesday evening crash of a light plane in the ocean off Malibu, and for forcing a jet trainer with astronaut Brewster H.
There's no use searching the sky anymore. If there is a hopeful cloud, it disappears into the pale blue emptiness, delivering nothing but disappointment. After nine months without substantial rainfall, beyond a brief, teasing splatter here and there, the farmers and ranchers of West Texas have retreated into a stiff-lipped resolve.

Low overcast skies of recent days may not be the greatest weather for sun lovers and surfers, but it's ideal for birds wintering in the Bolsa Chica wetlands and Upper Newport Bay. A chance to see some of these seasonal visitors foraging between tides drew Stan and Charlotte Livingston from their Granada Hills home to the Bolsa Chica State Ecological Reserve on Thursday.

"Wimps!" That was the good-natured reaction of R.E.M. lead singer Michael Stipe to the news Wednesday night that the other three major outdoor Southern California events that evening--the Angels and Dodgers games and the Whitney Houston concert at the Greek Theatre--had been canceled because of rain. However, the tickets for R.E.M.'s concert at the Pacific Amphitheatre read "Rain or Shine"--and apparently, few of the 3,000 drenched fans of the Georgia-based group would have had it any other way.
