The banner on my facebook page is a sunrise. It was a snapshot taken by Kim at my urging round about October 2003 in San Diego. The clouds are smoke, and we woke to ash on our car. For several days, we had to stay inside to keep from choking on the dust. The fire hit some of my friends in the hills hard. For us, it was just a few days inconvenience. We're in a similar moment, but the inconvenience will be longer and many will be hit harder.
