Sometimes, what you write can turn out to be far more timely than intended or anticipated. Last month, we wrote a blog post about the importance of travel insurance (“Plan for a Rainy Day”), citing recent events such as the fires in Colorado and the effects of Tropical Storm Andrew on the East Coast. Weather is something that can be anticipated, even if the specifics are unknown ahead of time. But some things simply cannot be expected.
This was tragically illustrated on Saturday, when Asian Flight 214 crashed at San Francisco Airport, killing two and injuring 168. It was the first accident at SFO resulting in the deaths of passengers in nearly 60 years. Hundreds of flights were cancelled, and many more around the country were delayed and/or rerouted.
But obviously, the greatest effects are those felt by the family and friends of the passengers on that flight, and our thoughts and best wishes go out to them at this time. We hope that you’ll extend the same to them.
