I was probably only 2 degrees of separation from James Kim, who was found dead after he left the vehicle where he and his family were stranded in freezing snow to go and find help.
I heard about it through my internet friend Rachel, who lives in the same sort of area as the Kims, and shared several friends with them, but again, she didn't know them personally. She mentioned it on her blog - I Googled the American news and found the whole story.
Terrible news. What a brave man - and what a choice he saw. To stay with his family, or take a chance. Anyway.
It feels so difficult to say, but even so, thank goodness that his children and wife are ok.
