|Will anyone hear me?

The last time I saw the internet 'pipes' this full was 9/11. Back then when I couldn't get to any sites I went around the corner to see the news reports on the TV, and listened to streaming BBC to get coverage. Now there's no TV. I don't know why I'm posting this now, except that I hope someone survives and sees it. I haven't seen one of them myself yet, and my only hope at this point is that I don't. I can't get to any of the regular news outlets, but at this point, everyone is blogging about it, and some people have posted pictures. One guy set up a webcam showing the masses somewhere in NYC, but that went offline a few minutes ago. The CDC has posted a 'more information coming' notice across their web page, but no one yet knows what's causing all the dead to come back and attack everyone around them. None of the pictures are clear, but if you see someone looking kind of grey, and frothing at the mouth, run as fast and as far as you can.Â If they kill you, you become one of them.
I've locked myself into an unused office here in the basement, and the rest of the building seems to have cleared out. In a few minutes I'm going to try to make a break for it. It's a good thing it is summer, and summer school hasn't started up yet; there aren't a lot of people on campus, which is probably slowing the spread here. If I can get to my car without encountering any of them, I should be able to get away. I'll have to stay off the highways, they're probably a traffic jam by now. I don't know if I should go back to Framingham or just clear out. I better stop back and get a few things loaded up, see if A. is still there, or if she already grabbed the cats and fled.
If any of you survive.... if any of us survive.... and if any of you read this.. Call me. I hope the cell phone towers will still be up, and I'll keep my phone charged as long as I can get gas into the car or plug into an outlet somewhere. I'm going to head for the quiet parts of the western end of the state, maybe a state park. I'll take the laptop, but may not have access.
And if we don't survive.... I love you all.
