The bleak, cold, storm-whipped Southern Ocean capsized one boat, dismasted another and crippled a third with a knockdown near 40 degrees south latitude. All three skippers--Frenchmen Philippe Poupon and Jean Yves Terlain and South African Bertie Reed--are out of the 27,000-nautical-mile non-stop race that began Nov.

Yes, the mountains of Southern California got a little snow , but the state's biggest snow hill, Mammoth Mountain, is still feeling pretty bony. Fun, but as much fun as man-made snow can be. And we have that lil' La Niña to blame. But wait, last year was also a La Niña year, and Mammoth got blasted with more than 668 inches of snow, including epic pre-Christmas dumps that made for a great holiday season.
