Hi everyone - just wanted to let you all know that we are safe and sound. As you may know, the 35W bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis collapsed tonight about 6:05 pm CDT. Our son crosses that bridge everyday to get to/from work. Tonight he was thinking he should work late, but ended up going home early - and crossed about 2 hrs before the collapse - thank God! My sister also crosses that bridge daily, but she worked from home today. As far as I know none of my nieces or nephews or friends were on the bridge. It is really hard to believe this is happening here - which is how most people feel about disasters, I'm sure.
My heart goes out to all the people with loved ones who were on the bridge - please send good thoughts and prayers their way.
