the beginning

Joshua Tree National Park lies about 130 miles east of Los Angeles and contains some remarkably breathtaking natural features, but enjoying a couple of nights during a particularly frigid winter can be a challenge for the unprepared. To summarize the first night in my tent, I did everything wrong to keep warm. I didn’t get my hat out of my pack. I wore the same clothes to bed that I’d had on all day. I didn’t eat anything before bed. And for most of the night, I kept my face inside the sleeping bag, so around 4 in the morning, the inside of my sleeping bag was dripping wet from condensation. Because of that truly awful night’s sleep, I woke up in the morning tired and unenthusiastic about the day.…

last call

After saying goodbye to his son Chris and Chris’ girlfriend, 56-year-old Don Myron wasn’t expecting any more Labor-Day-weekend visitors. So, it was a surprise when the local sheriff appeared on his doorstep a few hours later to tell him that the Beachie Creek Fire was drawing closer and that everyone in Oregon’s Little North Canyon should think seriously about evacuating. With how fierce the wildfire season had been, Myron assumed that this was just a precautionary measure. But to be safe, he spent the rest of the afternoon hosing down his property—to protect it from stray sparks—before heading back inside. “I had my last conversation with my oldest son around 8:45 p.m. I still felt OK at that point, although there was some smoke,” he remembered. It was a few hours later…

death roll

Sixty-one-year-old Mark Johnson was keeping a wary eye on the canal near his home in Port St. Lucie in southern Florida. That was because, while out on a walk with his golden retriever, Rex, he’d noticed something floating along the water’s surface: an 8-foot alligator. At first, the reptile seemed to be sticking to the middle of the canal, but when Rex wandered closer to the water, the gator turned and started to make a beeline for the pair. “I stepped down onto the mud bank and yelled at Rex to get on home,” remembered Johnson. But when he tried to follow his pooch to safety, he was pulled back—his foot had gotten stuck in the mud. Johnson was still trying to wrench his leg free when the gator reached the…

It was the worst rainstorm in Passaic, New Jersey, since Hurricane Irene in 2011. Water levels were rising quickly enough that the city even issued emergency flash-flood warnings. But 24-year-old Nathalia Bruno didn’t know about that. She was delivering food in her Toyota Prius for DoorDash and was just looking forward to heading home and getting out of the miserable weather. Soaked to the bone, Bruno was on her last delivery when the rain started to come down so hard and so fast that she could barely see out the front windshield. Following her GPS instructions, Bruno turned onto High Street, only to find it covered in standing water. By the time she realized that driving down the flooded road was a mistake, it was too late: The water was already…
