Santa Rosa Fires And My Coworkers

Quote of the Day

Egocentrics are attracted to the inept. It gives them one more excuse for patting themselves on the back.

I work for a company that is headquartered in Petaluma, California, which is just south of the Santa Rosa fire region. Six employees lost their homes in this fire. One employee, Danny Pomplun,  narrowly escaped the fire by sheltering in his pool. Their dramatic story is told very well in this Washington Post article. If you cannot gain access to the original news article, try this PDF of story.

Danny and his wife were fortunate -- they barely got out with their lives.
