35W

August 2, 2007

It’s been a surreal night.  As you may have read in the news, the major interstate freeway in Minneapolis suffered catastrophe.  This bridge failure happened about a mile or two from my house, happened to a freeway section I drive over daily, and happened to a bridge I ride my bike under several times a week.  A good friend was just about to ride under the bridge when it happened and witnessed everything firsthand.  Cell phone lines were jammed and a crush of people were downtown.  A major, major event for my state.

An image I took at the scene:

    Wow! I have been watching it on the news. Very scary, and I feel for those who may have lost loved ones this evening. Glad to see you are OK, good picture, but man it doesn’t do what happened justice. I can’t believe the damage. Hope all of your friends and family are safe.

    Wow, I had no idea you lived this close. I work about 2 blocks from there. If I had left work 5 minutes earlier I very well could have been on that bridge.
