RIM OF FIRE

It was two years ago that Southern California was burning. This is a shot of the "Olds Fire". It came roaring across a 20 mile stretch of the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains in one night. This particular fire took out hundreds of homes. It was raining ash for days.

There were other fires burning all across the southland. My cousins in San Diego were evacuated. They were lucky because the "Pines Fire" did not quite make it to their home. In all, thousands of homes were destroyed. I love those mountains, but at the time, I was glad to be a flatlander.

Mother Nature throws everything at us. Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. The resilience of man shows up in the ability to pick up the pieces and rebuild, or in some cases move on.
