It was wet, but it wasn’t San Diego’s wettest May. In fact, it didn’t crack the city’s top 10.It was cool, but many other Mays have been cooler, including last year.But May 2019 was certainly among the city’s all-time weirdest.And to San Diego County’s $1.77 billion agricultural industry, it was nothing short of wonderful. “We haven’t had a recent May where we’ve had something like this,” National Weather Service forecaster Miguel Miller said. “In the 20 years I’ve been here, I cannot think of another May that was inclement the entire month.”Storm after storm after storm arrived, and another always seemed to be on the horizon.

PUBLISHED: 06:30 04 March 2019 Andrew Hirst Suffolk County Council has sold off assets including schools, care homes and farms Picture: ARCHANT Cash-strapped councils in Suffolk and Essex have sold off millions of pounds’ worth of assets including schools, care homes, farms and community buildings. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ) has revealed details of hundreds of assets disposed of by councils as ways to cut spending, off-load redundant buildings, or give communities ownership of their facilities. The data shows some councils sold off scores of buildings, others retained all their assets and some used land to fuel development. From 2014-18, eight local councils responding to TBIJ’s Freedom of Information requests with financial details received more than £44 million pounds from asset sales. But while many sales achieved market value, more than half went for nothingCouncils claim transfers helped communities run their own … [Read more...] about Schools, farms and care homes among councils’ multimillion pound sell-off
