Won't be going that way for a while
by nate

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.

Heather and Nate,

As soon as I heard, I thought of you. Up odd hours these days due to new baby and caught the info on the late news. Glad you're ok! Wish I had more time to read your blog and get updated, but duty calls. Email me when you have a chance...

I am so glad to hear you both are OK! I immediately thought of you when I heard this AM and wanted to call you but knew it would be too early since I heard @ 7am my time! Do you know if Ilene and Mark are OK? Please let me know if you do. Thanks!
