Rose Parade spectator Miriam Pazz was snapping photos of a float honoring military dogs when it came to an abrupt halt. A man bounded off the platform in combat boots and fatigues. It was her husband, who she thought was still in Afghanistan. The crowd leaped up in a standing ovation as 4-year-old Eric Pazz II dashed from the sidewalk and into the arms of his father, Army Sgt. 1st Class Eric Pazz, 32. Moments later, the family locked in an embrace seen by hundreds of millions of parade viewers around the world.

Swathed in a blue and pink shawl, Cloris Leachman waltzed into the Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena earlier this week like a madcap fairy godmother. The Oscar-winning actress is the grand marshal of the 2009 Tournament of Roses Parade this morning. "Never in my most un-lucid moments had I imagined it," she said in between applications of pink lipstick. "I'm a great-grandmother, and I'm shocked they were even aware of me in this regard."

When the Rose Parade rolled down Colorado Boulevard, Sunhie Yoon was thrilled to be there. She laughed and jumped up and down when Garfield, her favorite cartoon character, appeared. She shouted "Wow!" when she saw a group of acrobats dangling from the masts of a pirate ship. But she reserved her most vigorous applause and widest smile for a float that featured Olympic athletes, drummers, dancers and seven flowered female figures that fluttered fans and turned from side to side.

The Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl have long served as Southern California's annual infomercials, as millions of people around the world gather around their television sets to marvel at the floats and the football -- but also to wonder how it could possibly be so darn sunny in the middle of the winter. This year, though, the parade and the game could feature another trademark of Southern California weather: Santa Ana winds.

WHEN the Rose Parade starts Monday morning at 8, one familiar face won't be among the throngs lining Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. She'll be someplace else, someplace far away, 2,000 miles from Southern California, in fact, up north where it's freezing and people won't pluck roses again till springtime. For the first time since the Carter administration, veteran broadcaster Stephanie Edwards will be MIA from the No.

The legend goes like this: Tournament of Roses officials decreed in 1893 that the Rose Parade would never be held on Sunday so that it would not interfere with the churches that lined Colorado Boulevard. Since then, planners have been rewarded -- some say divinely -- with only nine rainy parades -- the last one in 1955. But Paul Holman isn't taking any chances -- especially as the National Weather Service on Wednesday increased the odds of rain on Monday's parade from 50% to 80% or 90%.

It just might rain on our parade. The National Weather Service predicted a 50% chance of precipitation Monday, the day of the 2006 Rose Parade. But rain or shine, the parade will go on as scheduled, Tournament of Roses officials said. The last time it rained on a Rose Parade was 51 years ago -- Jan. 1, 1955 -- and it has rained only nine times in the parade's 116-year history.
