I moved to Southern California in 2002 to attend college, and I distinctly remember the fires that burned through the San Bernardino Mountains in October of my sophomore year. From my dorm room window at night I could see the hills aglow with flames. During the day, the sky took on an eerie, apocalyptic glow, and the sun shone sunset red, even at mid-day. A haze filled the air, and soot blanketed everything from cars to clothes.
