We're OK

There has been a terrible bridge collapse here in Minneapolis. We're OK and so far as we know, everyone- friends and relatives are safe too. I thank you for your concern.

I'm so glad you are alright. My first thought was of you birders and bloggers from the area. My relatives are further north. What a terrible blow to such a great city. I can't imagine the terror of such an accident. My prayers are with the poor families that have loved ones injured or killed.

Thank goodness! By the time I heard about the horrible accident, you had commented on my post so I knew you were OK.

The minute my husband called me to see the pictures on TV, I thought of you. What a terrible and random tragedy for those on and under the bridge. So glad you and yours are OK.

Thank goodness Lynne. That was so horrible to see. Thoughts and prayers ascend for all affected.

Lynne- did you have to work the ER last night?

I'm in absolute shock. I guess my dad had been over the bridge earlier in the day. I last drove over it a couple weeks ago when we picked up the Subaru. You just never think something like that could happen. But the stories of the survivors are amazing.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed, called or checked in here.

The whole thing is such a shock. I was ON that bridge an hour before the collapse, and I can't believe that it just isn't there anymore. Glad you and yours are ok.

Glad you are OK. I have a first cousin & her family living near St. Paul--so I confirmed that she is OK. So sad for those families who do not have the comfort we have now.

I'm glad that you and your family are o.k.-I'm a litle behind on that news.

Glad you're Ok. I don't have a television, so my news is usually late in coming and I didn't know about it until the next day. Prayers go out for everyone there.
