Safe

Following Mikknit's lead and checking in here to let you all know that my family and I are safe. I-35W collapsed today over the Mississippi. We were lucky to be sitting around the dinner table when it happened. Some were not so lucky and landed in the river.

Sending good vibes out to all of those still searching for loved ones. And if you are reading this from Minneapolis and haven't told me that you're okay yet, you KNOW I'm worrying about you so check in!!

Thanks, Gin. My Dad filled me on the family scoop - I was so glad to hear it. I thought of you first and was so relieved to hear that you weren't over there.

So happy to hear you are all safe. What a tragedy. This is not helping my fear of bridges.

C~ Hope you had a good trip. I am so glad to hear you are safe...I actually didn't know anything of the accident, being TV free does that to me!

I have moved some blog/journaling to a new site:
