Rancho Bernardo Evacuations

There are a lot of videos on youtube.com about the fire. This one really brought it home for me, though.

This takes place about 6 miles north of us, straight up our closest freeway. Someone took this footage of a dad strapping his kids into their carseats while his wife is tossing bags into the garage. According to the comments, this family never got the reverse-911 call.

Looks like neither did anyone on their street.

Boy, that is really scary. I'm so glad that you didn't have to leave like that. I've seen pictures on TV of people returning to their burned out homes. It is so sad. One was a fire fighter's home. He was out saving other people's home and couldn't save his own.

I have been thinking about you all non stop. Wondering if you are near any hillsides that might force an evacuation? Hope you stay safe and that the fires are contained SOON.

How very very sad. I wanted to say thank you for your kind comment at Miller Manor today. I wish you and your family safety. Hope you all stay safe and your home, too!
