Rails Seminar Watir on Rails talk cancelled due to Flood

I arrived in San Jose late yesterday because of a thunderstorm delay in Chicago. When I landed I called my wife to let her know I had arrived. I was looking forward to presenting Watir on Rails at AjaxWorld's Ruby on Rails Seminar. Unfortunately, the thunderstorms that delayed my flight also flooded our home. Thankfully my wife and children are OK, but there's some serious damage to our house and I'm catching the next flight back. My talk won't be happening today.

Update: We've received an amazing amount of help and support over the last 24 hours. When I arrived at home today, it was depressing to see a mudpit and a dumpster where our front yard used to be, but it was inspirational to see so many friends and family hard at work getting things cleaned up and dried out. This experience has certainly given Staci and me an opportunity to see things, particularly material things, from a new perspective. At times like this I'm frequently reminded of Jerry's Sage Advice: "It may look like a crisis, but it's only the end of an illusion."
