San Marcos Fire

San Marcos Fire

San Marcos Fire

Just a quick note to let you know we are fine. The fire is South of us about 4 miles. We can see it from our house as you can see from the video. We have been watching all the fires all day. This morning I put out the Hummingbird feeder and the Oriole feeder and while watching for the birds to arrive noticed the fires as they have developed with the last one being the San Marcos Fire. We are North of San Marcos Blvd and the evacuation are south of San Marcos Blvd.

Thanks for thinking of us, but unless things turn for the worse we are in no danger, but just in case we have our cars fueled up and ready to go.

    Thank you ever so much for posting this so we know what is going on. So happy you are safe and ready to evacuate if the situation gets worse. I will be praying for you and your neighbors, two legged and four. This could mean less food for the owls if the little mice can’t run fast enough to stay ahead of the flames.
