PostSubject: Minneapolis bridge collapses over Mississippi River   Wed Aug 01, 2007 9:01 pm

Hello!
I haven't been able to check in for awhile, but found some time this evening. At around 6:00 this evening, one of our main bridges in Minneapolis, near downtown, collapsed over the Mississippi River. It's quite a scene, and a tragic one at that. About 200,000 cars go over that bridge every day. We're not sure what caused it to collapse yet, but it's just crazy around here. I couldn't imagine being on that bridge tonight as it was happening.
On a lighter note, things are going well here. My son, Shane, is now 7 months old. I can't believe how fast the time has gone! He's quite a big boy. He's going to be tall, just like his dad. My daughter, Emily, turned 4 a couple of weeks ago. It's been a busy summer.
I hope everyone is doing well, and having a wonderful summer!!

Teresa

Hey Teresa,

It's good to hear from you again. I just read about this on the news. How awful! My hubby says I'm silly to be scared of tunnel and bridge collapses, but they do happen.

I can't believe the baby is already 7 months old. The time goes so quickly. I can remember bringing my son home from the hospital and he turned 20 in May. Yikes!

I'm glad everything is going well. Thanks for checking in.

OMG Teresa!!! How are you? We miss you around here. I'm so glad you made your appearance tonight. :woohooo: How time flies, can't believe Shane will be almost one!!! Shane and Emily are so cute and adorable!!!

I saw this on the news tonight. How tragic!! I just can't imagine. I always have the fear whenever I drive under the overpass, hope they don't collapse on me.

Teresa, glad to see you posting again. I understand about being busy. I can't believe Shane is 7 months already, I still have the pics you sent when he was a fews weeks old. Happy birthday to Emily and glad things are going well. Pop in more often! grinsmiley

Scary about the bridge, Arkansas had a bridge collapse after a barge struck it. It was right on the Arkansas/Oklahoma border in the town I work in. This was over a year ago and I don't think I have been over that bridge since then. It's a scary thing. :unsure:

My husband just e-mailed me from work and told me that the girlfriend of one of his employees was on the bridge last night when it collapsed. Her car fell about 30 feet, but I don't think she went into the river. Thankfully she is going to be okay. Wow!! How terrified she must have been! I wonder how many other people I know were on or near that bridge last night before it collapsed?

I read that the death count was lowered to 4 confirmed deaths from 7. 4 too many, but better than 7. No
