Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
monstersocks and I are okay and at home. Neither of us took 35W today.

[Edit 11:23pm] - Just to give this post some context so that it makes sense later, around 6:05pm cdt tonight the 35W bridge between University Ave and Washington Ave collapsed. CNN, strib. I don't currently take 35W as part of my commute, but would have started sometime in September when we move into our house.

I found out while I was working out in my apartment's exercise room. Scrubs had ended and I was flipping through the channels because I'd already seen last night's Daily Show. I came across Fox News' coverage of the collapse, then eventually switched to local news. I called monstersocks to make sure she was aware of what was going on. She'd gotten a call from her mother to make sure we were okay. I called my parents and brother and sister-in-law to let them know I was okay. None of them had heard about the collapse until I called but they were glad they heard from me first.

Good to hear. I have been wondering, and the phone lines into the Twin Cities have been jammed for hours. Hope my other friends are OK....

We've heard from most of the folks we know in the cities online. No bad news so far.
