Minneapolis Bridge Collapse

All is well.
All are well
Unbelievable.
I was near there when it went down.
It is very close to the University of Minnesota (where I work) on one side of the river and Metrodome on the other side of the river.
I use the Washington Street bridge and the Hennepin Avenue bridge twice a day and the bridge that went down is between them.
It happened at 6:05pm.
I was on Wash bridge at that time but I saw or heard nothing.
Then 10 minutes later there were emergency vehicles coming from every direction.
10 min after that I was on Henn bridge and saw all the black smoke.
Some one on the bus said the I-35 bridge has collapsed.
I didn't understand until about 6:45pm when I got home and turned on the TV.
I was stunned by what I saw.
It actually took me several minutes of looking at the pictures to orient myself and figure out just how bad it was.
It's bad.

Talk soon,
Bruce

I go to school down at Gustavus, so this one has hit close to home. I haven't heard if anyone I know is affected by it. I'm glad to hear you're all right.

last night i got one of the facilities guys to let me climb the ladder up on to the roof of our building - about 5 stories up
and you can look right down at the river
again it took me a few minutes to orientate everything
cuz the bridge used to be at a certain height, and you are used to looking at it from that perspective
but its not there and it was at first hard to figure out what was bridge etc
it was an awesome sight
and i dont mean that in a good way
