Calling chebutykin! Please check in!
Hey Cheb, I just had the news about the I-35W bridge brought to my attention. Can you check in to let me know you and yours are okay? I tried calling but getting a free trunk line into any area remotely near Hennepin Country right now is just impossible.

I was able to get through to the farm, my family (parents, uncles, aunts and cousins) are fine.

[EDIT @1953: Cheb replied, she and hers are okay.]

Current Mood: worried worried
Current Music: Keith Olbermann reporting on the disaster

Wow, how the fuck does something like that happen nowadays?!? Hopefully your friend is ok and there aren't too many casualties.

The bridge is 40 years old and the span is 500+ feet (2,000 feet long all told, I think) was undergoing repair of the road surface by MN DOT. The repair crew may very well have compromised the integrity of the span somehow, even if it was indirect...

You and I both. It's scary how closely things like this hit home, isn't it? Between our own lives, our friends, our family...

God speed to all those who have yet to have such reassurances.

you can move us out of the midwest but you can't take the midwest out of us...i moved away from St. Paul 4.5 years ago but i still feel most at home out there :)

Hubby and I are ok too, along with the rest of our core group of old Benden Weyr peeps.

That's wonderful news!

Thank you for checking in, Sandee! I hadn't meant to seem as if I was neglecting you or the others in the old clique. I only know of a few who have LJ accounts.

Belated though it may be: I'd like to pass along my congratulations to you and yours for the one on the way, I'm sorry I have not had time to comment et.

Re: That's wonderful news!

Not a problem. I know you're much closer to Cheb. Just thought I'd add to your info.

And thank you!
