WELLS, MN – This morning I stepped outside dressed in jogging shorts and a t-shirt. I reached up and plucked a ripe, juicy Naval orange off my citrus tree that grows just outside my back door. I lifted my face to the sun’s morning rays feeling its soothing warmth gently bathing my tired skin.

The weather report calls for mid-60s to low 70s temperatures. Ah, what a beautiful Southern California day.

I went back inside and checked my email. Up popped a message from my sister, Pat Stenzel, and her husband Wally, who live in Wells, Minnesota.

Pat attached pictures showing her small southern Minnesota village buried under an avalanche of snow. Her street was piled high on each side with mounds of snow four feet high.

YUCAIPA, CA – Ah, what a perfect day. Temperatures mid-seventies, clean, clear air, and the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains as a backdrop during the Yucaipa High girl’s soccer match with Redlands East Valley.

Here, Yucaipa goal keeper, Nykell Seymour and Amanda Winters warm up before the game. A game in which Yucaipa came back from a 1-0 first half deficit to score two goals in the second half for a 2-1 victory over the Wildcats in the first game of the Citrus Belt League for both teams.
