Snowflakes fell from Mt. Washington to Brentwood on Saturday as the coldest temperatures of the season sent the homeless to special city shelters, kept homeowners busy covering pansies with plastic sheets and brought frost warnings to fruit growers in outlying valleys.

All Cut Up Films created a holiday present for Angelenos: "Snow Globe Los Angeles. " You can't buy it in a store, but you can tweet it to friends. Freelance filmmaker Colin Mika shot the time-lapse "snow globe" that's a fun tribute to Los Angeles. It's a mash-up of 4,000 still images of L.A. and its environs. It's a nice visual stroll from the Hollywood sign and downtown to the beach (I especially like the fireworks sequence). Along with a Canon 5D MII camera, it was created with "a homemade tilt-shift style lens" and a light bulb filled with water, the website says.

With conversation drowned out by the roar of the engine, Chuck Maurer holds onto the controls of the orange snow cat winding its way up a snowy roadway along Rock Creek about 15 miles south of here. He does not--most decidedly, it should be emphasized--look a bit like Johnny Carson. But in many ways, Maurer is in a similar situation to Carson's with straight man Ed McMahon.

I read with great interest the editorial "Oil Patch Asks for Help" (Dec. 5) and find agreement with all but two statements. The oil industry has a high profile and there is no way government will "stay out." The first violator of free trade for the oil industry is the government. Whether you call it price control, windfall profits, or complex gas regulations, government is always there. The flagrant error in the editorial is the statement " . . . the industry is highly profitable and has expended considerable energy and money on mergers and takeovers."

Your article about cookies had me laughing out loud ("Confessions of a Would-Be Housewife," by Carolynn Carreno, Feb. 4). I appreciate Carreno's love of baking, how she would employ it to win friends and fatten up enemies. From my grandmother I learned the excitement and satisfaction of baking the sweet, round goodies. Chocolate chip cookies were her specialty, and everyone always loved them. I remember the twinkle in her eye as she set the timer on the stove and put on a pot of water for tea with fresh-baked cookies.

I enjoyed Mathews' article on the probable Oscar nominees and winners. I'd like to suggest the following as an addendum: 1--The nominations will be dominated by films about mental or physical disability or about unlikely yet "sensitive" relationships. These films will feature tour de force performances by major stars and some slick manipulation of our emotions, effectively disguising the fact that they really aren't any better than the average TV movie. 2--Each of the award-winning films will have been a commercial success.

ART George Herms An influential California sculptor steeped in the spirit of Beat poetry, George Herms will fuse his found object-oriented art with the free-wheeling sound of the Bobby Bradford Mo'tet and other jazz heavyweights for "The Artist's Life. " A category-defying autobiographical piece billed as a "free-jazz opera," the evening's mix of percussive exploration on Herms' unique sculptures along with a live, improvised jazz score should further illuminate the artist's vivid body of work.

Rain, hail and even some snow fell in the Los Angeles Basin on Monday as a cold, unstable front moved rapidly into Southern California off the ocean to remind everyone that winter's lease has not quite expired. Snow briefly whitened the San Gabriel Mountains and parts of Glendale, Sunland, La Crescenta, La Canada Flintridge and Pasadena as well as the Antelope Valley. Except in the foothills, the snow was mostly slush and melted away quickly.

I was so impressed with your article a few months ago about "Getting Out of L.A." (May 19) that I photocopied it and sent it to all my acquaintances who did get out of Los Angeles. I especially loved your headline on the front cover that said, "Everybody talks about it. Some people even do it. A report on ditching L.A. for the 'good life.' " While I have always been one of those people who talked about it, I never really took my own words seriously. I migrated to this city and have lived here for 21 years, and as much as I loathe Los Angeles with its crime, billion-plus people and high cost of living, it is my home.
