We are in San Diego County. We are safe for the moment. We have even provided rooms in our guesthouse to about a dozen persons who fled fires further inland. The monastery is two miles from the ocean.
Our danger is that brush-filled canyons constitute the western and eastern borders of our property. If a fire starts down inside one of them, it would race uphill to the monastery.
