LadyGreek & Delph

I just saw breaking news that a bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River in Minneapolis and I was just wanted to be sure you two were OK. (Sorry if I am missing any other Minn. folks! If so, let us know that you are OK also!)

If you read this, let us know that all is well. If anyone happens to have their number, please give them a call to be sure they are OK.


(CT4, you can delete this thread when needed. I was going to post this in Random Spurts, but I didn't want it to get buried or lost in the mix!)

Yeah, I just called my mom and dad and they told me tonight. I used to cross that same old bridge to go to work when I was in highschool and whenever traffic would get stopped on it, it would vibrate. I always hated that bridge.

So kind, RedefinedDiva. Praise the Lord, everyone that I know of so far is okay. I drive that freeway all of the time. That is my sister's daily route to work, but praise God she didn't have to go to work today -- otherwise, she could have very well been on that bridge at that time.

Thank you for thinking of Ladygreek and me.

I just spoke to Ladygreek and she's okay as well.

Thanks everyone. Luckily, I don't have to use that bridge, but it sent shivers down my spine to hear that Del's sister uses it regularly.

PB, glad to here your family is okay, too.

They have announced six fatalities. But they are now doing a river recovery as opposed to a river rescue, beause they still don't know how many people might still be in the water. I pray that everyone is out.

ETA: They just announced that at least 20 people are missing.

Glad to hear that you are okay. My dad lives there and he called me and told me the news. I'll be praying for Minneapolis/St. Paul.

I am so happy that you two are OK. The signal I connect to has been acting up, so I haven't been able to see the posts for a few hours. I've been worried. I heard of one fatality earlier and by the time Dateline came on, they were up to 6. My heart goes out to everyone involved!

Thank you. This will affect us for years to come. Personally I am awaiting an outside investigation into MN DOT, which has already been under scrutiny.

Wow I'm glad to hear that both of you are okay. This is exactly why I have a semi-fear of being stuck on bridges. You want to believe your infrastructure is secure but it just isn't these days.
