On this day in 2003 wildfires were raging across parts of California. KNBC Newsman Chuck Henry waited until the last seconds before evacuating only to discover his van wouldn't start as a wall of flames threatened to engulf him. Fortunately, Chuck managed to escape to safety! Always have an escape plan when taking photos in wild weather!

You can walk this beach 365 days of the year & each time it will be different. A flowing or ebbing tide, scudding clouds, a strengthening nor'easterly; it is never the same, if you really look at the details around you. #stormhour #POTW pic.twitter.com/8TrXFR8dDa
