That's why everybody thinks it's such an incredible year this year. For the most part, people have very short memories. ... They think it's like 1999 all over again. It's not even close.

Last year at this point, there was great concern about the water supply, especially for municipal water in the Seattle area. Now this year, you don't have to think about it.

There's no one that's blowing the whistle or complaining that they're going to have a bad year by any means.

Average is a matter of perspective, and this year, average is looking pretty good.
