Sometimes I think terrible reggae passes for listenable reggae more often than its rock or hip-hop counterparts because… marijuana maybe? I don't know. My point is that a lot of bad reggae exists, but J Boog, thankfully, is not that. Blending a perfect mix of brass, R&B vocals and subtle hints of pop, …
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — For the first time in weeks, temperatures are forecast to reach 80 degrees, just days after a cold winter storm dumped more rain and snow on Southern California. Forecasters say highs will reach about 80 in both L.A. and Orange counties, about 10 degrees above normal, thanks to a high pressure system and weak Santa Ana winds. An unusually warm winter with daily highs in the 70s and 80s stopped abruptly in mid-February when temperatures plunged, leaving Southern California shivering in 50s and 60s for the past two weeks. Just last week, the region was hit by two cold storms, both of which brought several feet of snow to local mountains. There was so much snow, an avalanche partially buried three people at Mammoth Mountain over the weekend. The winter heat wave will last through Thursday and will be followed by another storm forecast to arrive later Saturday.

Last February, Mayor Bill de Blasio had visited the area praising community leaders for what was at the time a dramatic drop in gun-related violence at the complex.

MONTECITO (CBSLA) — Celebrities are making sure to thank the crews helping dig Montecito out from a deadly mudslide. Ellen DeGeneres stopped to thank a California Highway Patrol officer working a road closure Monday in the Montecito area. She also took a picture with the officer, which was posted to the agency’s Twitter page. #EllenDeGeneres stopped to thank one of our officers working a road closure around the #Montecito area. She related that she appreciates what law enforcement has done to help with the #MontecitoMudslide . #EllenDeGeneres thank you for your support. @CHP_HQ @CHP_Coastal @KEYTNC3 pic.twitter.com/EnxDqLJUGP — Santa Barbara CHP (@CHP_SantaBarb) January 22, 2018 The mudslide that devastated the wealthy coastal enclave of Montecito killed at least 21, and two people, including a 2-year-old girl, remain missing. It also forced the closure of Highway 101 in Montecito , cutting off Southern California’s access to the Central California coastal communities for two weeks. Oprah posted her thanks on Instagram, where she put a picture showing Highway 101 immediately after the mudslide next to one of the cleaned up and reopened freeway. “All hands on the Highway and thru the streets of Montecito that got this done. @CaltransD5. You ALL are Awesome. And we the People appreciate your Herculean, exhausting work, round the clock for the past 12 days,” she wrote. Last week, Jeff Bridges spoke to Cal Office of Emergency Services officials about surviving the mudslide, while doling out hugs to workers. The “Big Lebowski” actor said the mudslide gave him a flashback to the Northridge earthquake. “The house started to shake like an earthquake, and I heard my wife screaming, and coming out of the bedroom holding the dog, and boom, here comes the mud and debris,” Bridges said. After taking refuge in the highest point of their home, the couple ran to their front yard at the sound of a helicopter. They were ultimately airlifted to safety.

As he stood in his front yard, wearing muddy rubber fireman boots, heavy machinery and piles of mud and debris could be seen behind him.
