News Notes

  • 66º | Sunny | 3% chance of rain
  • Has this been San Diego’s rainiest year ever? No, just the rainiest in 18 years. According to the National Weather service, the 2022-2023 water year has accumulated 45 rainy days from Oct. 1 to March 21, ranking it at No. 11 — the 1951-1952 water year set the record with 53 days. (National Weather Service)
Sunrise + Sunset
  • Rise: 6:43 a.m.
  • Set: 7:05 p.m.
  • Low: 1:10 a.m.
  • High: 9:14 a.m.
  • Water Temperature: 55°
  • San Diego Wave FC opened the season with a victory and record-breaking support. The team defeated Chicago Red Stars 3-2 at Snapdragon Stadium on Saturday in front of 30,854 fans. That crowd broke the NSWL record for largest attendance at a home opener.
  • A sweet — but not too sweet — addition is coming to Kearny Mesa. Yiko Yiko is aiming to open on Friday, March 31, and will specialize in healthier versions of Chinese desserts. We’ve got our eye on the fluffy green tea chiffon cake that uses egg whites rather than baking powder. (Eater San Diego)
  • San Diego County’s unemployment rate rose to 3.7% in January, up from 3% in December, with retail and tech industries accounting for ~9,500 jobs lost. Still, the numbers work out to be better than California’s 4.6% unemployment rate — the same rate the county saw in January 2022. (San Diego Union-Tribune)
Real Estate
  • Since the housing market peaked in July 2022, the US has lost 58 “million-dollar communities” — neighborhoods where the average home is worth $1+ million. According to Zillow, Bonita is one of them, where the average home price is now $993,500. Seven remain in San Diego County. (Times of San Diego)
  • Experts at The Ascent have sorted through hundreds of credit cards so far this year. And their top five bonus cards are (cue drumroll)... these five. 👀*
The Word
🏀 A historic shot
This weekend was a slam dunk for the San Diego State University Aztecs. On Friday, the team defeated the No. 1 seeded Alabama Crimson Tide 71-64 in the NCAA Tournament.

This allowed the team to advance to the Elite Eight in the March Madness bracket. Yesterday, they faced the Creighton Bluejays in a nail-biter game. With 1.2 seconds left on the clock and a tied score, Darrion Trammell shot a game-winning free throw, giving the Aztecs a 57-56 victory.

This is Aztecs history, marking the program’s first-ever appearance in the Elite Eight — they’d only been in the Sweet 16 twice before. Now, history continues as the team will get their first shot in the Final Four.

Next stop: NRG Stadium in Houston, TX, to face the Florida Atlantic Owls on Saturday, April 1, 3:09 p.m., in the Final Four.
The Wrap
Michael Beausoleil Today’s Edition By:
From the Editor
Good morning, San Diego. Mondays always put me in the mood for coffee, and I love Lofty Coffee. There are locations in Encinitas, Solana Beach, Little Italy, La Costa, and Carlsbad Village, but I’d recommend taking a trip to Roasting Works in Encinitas (across the street from the cafe). The food and drinks are great, and there are cool hilltop views overlooking North Coast Highway 101.
