Melissa Geissinger measured grief by the number of cars she could see in a driveway or a hotel parking lot. About the series One year ago, more than a dozen fires shot to life in the North Bay. One of them, the Tubbs Fire, would become the most destructive wildfire in California history. In the year since, The Chronicle’s Lizzie Johnson has spent hundreds of hours with two couples to report this series, witnessing some of the most intimate, heartbreaking and joyous moments as they rebuilt their lives. They were a sign of loss. More vehicles meant more heartache. In the weeks after the Tubbs Fire, thousands of people displaced by the North Bay fires fled to temporary housing in far-flung corners of Sonoma County. They couldn’t go home, so their cars clotted the neighborhoods of their friends or were parked all day outside the Finley Community Center in Santa Rosa — one of 43 evacuation centers that opened in the county during the fire that broke out late Oct. 8. … [Read more...] about A new, unhappy normal

Craig Culver, 68, uses a large, perfectly polished metal spatula to press the beef into perfectly round patties, with the help of an equally well-polished round metal canister. That grill isn’t quite hot enough, by the way, he comments. I've watched (maybe secretly wishing I was in) the Culver's commercials with the restaurant's co-founder surprising customers, offering to bring them into the kitchen as he cooks their burgers. That was a tricky shoot, Culver says, because they were doing it during lunch hours at a Culver's in Tampa, Florida. When gray edges form around the patties, he explains, they're ready to flip.
