Our family is OK, and as far as we know, all of our friends in the area are OK. We're still getting information, but so far so good.
Thankfully, Rick changed his normal route a few days ago...otherwise there is a very good chance he would have been driving over that bridge when it went.
How are you guys?
For those of you outside the Minneapolis/St. Paul area - one of the big bridges on one of our major freeways collapsed today...into the Mississippi River. as many as fifty cars are reported in the river and six people have died, according to CNN.
The pictures on the news look pretty aweful. It's going to take a while for our community to recover from this, and it is terrible to think of all the people and families that are in pain and fear tonight.
If those you love are in your house with you, give them a big hug for me, would you? Just out of gratitude for your peace and safety tonight.
