NEIGHBORS

FIVE DAYS of snow-enforced family bonding have taken their toll on just about everyone I've talked too. And more snow is on the way. We were warned that this was going to be a "big one," but not the "BIG ONE."

Come July Fourth, long after the last patch of snow has melted from parking lots, we can fondly look back and say we survived the blizzard of '96.

Stay warm and safe, Pasadena.
