The temperature could reach the upper 80s to mid-90s in Burbank today. We’ll be suffering through another bout of high humidity again, too.  Also, a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Jean Youn’s Tips and Insight: The changing seasons

It seems like it wasn’t that long ago when the flowers were blooming and now the leaves are about to get ready to fall. All the seasons have their own colors. Winter is white, spring is pink, summer is blue, and autumn is brown, and each of the colors of the seasons is beautiful. People are all different colors, too. It is these colors that make up the world, and it is beautiful. In the Korean language, there is a word pronounced like “math” and another word pronounced like “muht”.... Read More →
