Home, Safe and Sound

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.
