I assume most of you have heard by now, but a major bridge in Minneapolis collapsed yesterday evening. Everyone in our family is OK, but my Mom had a close-ish call. She drives under that bridge twice a day on her way to and from work. Last night, she stayed late to finish some things, and as she was leaving, emergency vehicles were pouring into the area, and her usual route was blocked off. If she had been five minutes faster, who knows what would have happened? At any rate, if you have friends and/or family in the Twin Cities, give them a shout (not on their cell phones; the network is overloaded as it is) and let them know they are in your thoughts.
