Time to fall back and change those clocks

If you remembered to set your analog clocks back before going to bed, you probably got an extra hour of sleep last night. If not, you should make the change now — or be an hour ahead of everyone else. Those smart phones and watches automatically update.  Daylight saving time has officially ended for most of us in the U.S., except Hawaii and Arizona.who never made the switch. They stayed on standard time. By the way, Sunrise and sunset are going to come earlier — giving... Read More →

Updated: Second day of fall — hot temps in Burbank

On this the second day of fall, the temperature shot up to 80 degrees before noon  in Burbank. The high today in the Media City expected to be near 90. For those having to work outside, like the Burbank city crews pruning giant Ficus trees on Magnolia Boulevard, it’s going to be a tough day. It probably feels more like triple digit temps to the tree trimmers who are wearing a ton of clothing and gear. For several weeks, crews have been pruning the city trees up and... Read More →

Fall returns to Burbank

  A major chance in the weather today. Yesterday, the Media City sizzled with a high of 92. ABC7’s meteorologist, Dallas Raines, reported last night that high broke a record of 91 — set back in 1974. Today the temperature is expected to reach only 70 in B-town.. Partly cloudy skies in the forecast, along with a chance of light drizzle or rain tonight and tomorrow.  Fall returns to Burbank, which is not a bad thing. That kind of weather really feels like Thanksgiving time in the Southland.

Jean Youn: November, time change, and a season of mums

Now, it is November. Daylight saving time ended today, because we turned our clocks back an hour to begin Standard Time.  From now on, the night time will seem even longer. Where is your hometown? If you spent your childhood in Australia, you’d remember that November is the beginning of spring there. If your hometown is located not just in Australia, but in a region in the Southern Hemisphere, the same would be true. In Korea where I spent my childhood, November is the time when fall...

Garden Guru: Fall planting from seeds in the Southland

Now’s the time to get those winter veggies ready to start! I have people coming in wanting to buy pepper and tomato seeds and I immediately show them what they should be planting now. Here in SoCal we have mild enough”winters” to start our cool season seeds this early. Green and root vegetables will do fine in our winters. Here are some seeds to start now. Remember the hot days might be a risk for starter plants (cool season) you’ll find growing at your nursery. That is kinda risky with the... Read More →

Burbank pounded by first fall storm of 2012

Just before 2 p.m this afternoon, the first fall storm of the season rolled into Burbank with heavy rain, flashes of lightning, and crackling thunder. The high today only in the 60s. For the past few days, rain has been in the forecast and the skies were filled with dark threatening clouds this morning– still some were caught without umbrellas when the raindrops began falling. The rain forced most motorists to ease up off the gas pedal and that’s a good thing any time it happens. By 2:40 p.m. the... Read More →

90 degree temperatures on the first day of fall in Burbank

On this the first day of autumn, the leaves are falling and the temperature rising in Burbank. In fact, the high reached 93 this afternoon in the Media City. Still change is in the air and that’s a good thing. Expect some cooler temps over the next few days. Get ready — Halloween is only a few weeks away. Scary how time flies.

Jean Youn: Burning red time

Have you ever heard anyone say ‘burning fall/autumn?’ That is the name given to this time of year in Korea. It’s in reference to the red color of the leaves around this time. Fall isn’t a time of melancholy as some might say, it is a burning red time of year. Burning is often used to describe passion. Passion is what makes every day worth the while. When I dry clean your clothes, I hope that I look at it as though I am clothing you with passion. I hope... Read More →

Jean Youn: Helen Keller & appreciating the season

The sky is wonderfully blue. The weather is neither hot nor cold with just the right amount of sunlight. The breeze is cool and refreshing. The leaves turn beautifully red and yellow. These are the images that remind us that it is now fall. When we’re too busy and have this and that to worry about, we often miss the things that are beautiful about the season. This is a quote from Helen Keller: “Now and then I have tested my seeing friends to discover what they see. Recently I... Read More →
