This comes to me from my friend Paul Brownstein. It might be my all time favorite email, and says a lot about why I love Southern California:
Subject: FW: CA Storm Watch 2004
With all the news on TV lately about the sub zero weather and snow that the East coast and upstate NY areas are experiencing, we shouldn’t forget that Southern California has it’s share of devastating weather also.
I’ve attached a photo illustrating the excessive damage caused to a home from a west coast storm that passed through the Los Angeles area a couple of days ago.
It really makes you cherish what you have, and reminds us not to take life for granted!
