Mark pointed me to this blog: ForbesOnTech. The dude’s fire blogging in Southern California. I think it helps me manage my worried soul when read about his experience. He had to evacuate with his “two useless cats” and his “PTSD afflicted dog”.
I never go anywhere without my notebook which has integrated 802.11 WiFi and broadband wireless. I used both extensively while i was away from my house. at the evacuation center, I spent about two hours sending emails on behalf of others gathered in the parking lot.
