If you haven't heard yet, you will soon. The I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River collapsed this evening. This is a bridge I would normally take home after work. I haven't been since mid-June when they closed the on-ramp that I used to get on I-35W. I was never in danger today. I crossed the river on a different bridge around 5:50pm, about ten minutes before the bridge collapsed and didn't hear about it until I was picking Heather up at 6:30.

Won't be going that way for a while
