Residents have begun to trickle back into the Black Forest neighborhood of Colorado Springs, Colo., where last week a wind-whipped wildfire forced the evacuation of about 40,000 people.

Given the extent of the damage, it may take time for another, equally important truth to sink in: The destruction could have been far worse.
