bridge collapse

Just in case anyone is worried, Kristin and I are ok. Can see one end of it from my office window. Just gut wrenching.

    So glad you guys are okay. Has anyone heard from Dave?

    I texted him; phone service has been hell the last few hours.

    Just heard from Dave…he’s okay.

    I just spoke with Dave, and he’s fine. Thanks, Alan, for checking in and letting us know you guys are safe. We miss you.

    Hi, I’m glad you are okay. My name is Sanden Totten. I work for Minnesota Public Radio News. A colleague of mine forwarded me a link to your blog post. I’m looking for people to talk to who saw the bridge collapse and was wondering if you could get in touch with me this morning. Please send me an e-mail when you get this. Thank you.

    Of course, I thought of you right away when the accident happened, but I figured that the chance that you would be hurt was incredibly small.

    I’m glad for the confirmation, though.
