Just checking in... Watching the bridge collapse news coverage in Minneapolis, and checking in to make sure everyone's OK.

We are in Minneapolis. I work on 1 side of the bridge and ds is at day care just on the other side. Luckily, dh picked up ds at 5:40 today and they crossed the bridge about 5:45 which was 15-20 minutes before it collapsed. I am very thankful, although still concerned about those injured and so sorry for the family of the one person confirmed dead so far.

And even though it is trivial compared to that: I'm also glad we're leaving town for 2 weeks because traffic is going to be absolutely wild for a long while.
