“Last winter was extremely unusual. A winter like that doesn't come around that often and this year is a little dryer then normal. We should have had more rain, many areas in Southern California are well below normal.”
“Today is a most unusual day, because we have never lived it before; we will never live it again; it is the only day we have.
Today can be a healthy unusual day for you -- and for others -- if you take time to give someone a smile . . . to express a word of kindness . . . to lend a helping hand to someone in need . . . to write a note of gratitude . . . to give a word of encouragement to someone who is temporarily overcome with problems . . . to share a portion of your material possessions with others.”
“Last year began with a large surplus but an unusually hot summer ate up those reserves and soon thereafter the hurricanes hit. There is still some infrastructure that was damaged, which could be a problem.”
