Smedley Speaks on San Diego Wildfires

Smedley Speaks on San Diego Wildfires

SOE CEO John Smedley has updated his station blog to inform everyone about the current status of SOE's services and relate his own personal story of the wildfires in San Diego, his early morning evacuation, and watching the flames creep toward his neighborhood. In his blog he relates that at least one person at SOE did lose their home, and things in San Diego are far from returning to normal, but SOE services should be back to full strength on Monday. He also thanks everyone for their outpouring of support.

Hello Everyone,

Ordinarily I stick to Online Gaming stuff.. but this week I’d like to share something a little more personal.

This week has been a tough one for San Diego. These fires have just devastated our City. I know this is going to sound cliché, but the outpouring of help that people here have given each other has been nothing short of amazing to watch. The evacuation was one of the most organized and efficient things I have ever seen. We got the reverse 911 call at 4:30am on Monday morning to get out of my house (I live in a suburb of San Diego that is right on the border of Rancho Bernardo and Poway). That call literally saved our lives.

We got my 4 kids up and into my wife’s car very quickly, but I was terrified when I saw the flames coming our way while we were loading the kids into the car.

One thing you never, ever want to see while you are with your kids is fire coming towards your house.
