Grief for what might have been. You may salvage some of what’s been lost. Don’t hold on too long to the emotional baggage. Change your thoughts to change the story.
California has had its share of natural disasters. The most devastating California flood in recorded history began when rain fell between December 1861 and January 1862. Floods hit from the Humboldt coast, the central valleys, down to San Diego. Statewide flood damage cost an estimated $254 million in today's dollars, and more than 200,000 head of cattle died. The state went bankrupt, and California’s economy evolved from ranching to farming. People tend to overcome the past—sometimes it’s for the best, such as our capacity to move on from tragedy and be grateful for what we have left.
