We're Fine.

I can't tell you how many times we've crossed this bridge. Looks like it was the last.

So glad to hear that you and the family are ok!

Thank goodness. I thought of all of you when I heard.

I thought of you immediately upon hearing - and I don't even know you. I'm so glad to hear you are okay, and my thoughts are with the families of those who were not as fortunate.

As weird as it sounds, I immediately included you in my "concern list" of family & friends back in our native MN. So glad you updated and you are all OK.

Thanks for posting. As soon as I saw the coverage on TV I was worried about you guys and Linda. She's okay too, right?

You were the first site I went to today, I'm glad you guys are okay.

I thought of you all as soon as I heard. Is M. Small's birth mom okay as well?

For non-US viewers: what happened? Was there an earthquake? Did someone blow up the bridge? Did it fall apart because the contractors mixed too much sand in the concrete?

I too thought of you guys when I heard this news. Glad to hear you are all okay. What a nightmare!

Amazing how many of us thought of you guys first. Almost like the first family of Minnesota!

I also thought of you guys right away - I am happy to hear all is well.

I, too thought of you guys when I heard- couldn't wait to get to work so I could find out if you are ok. And I don't know you either, but I am a regular reader. I'm glad you're fine.

Oh, thank goodness. Even without knowing any of you, all I could think about last night was the Giant family.

Very glad to hear that you are all okay. Take care. Your community is in our prayers.

By Blogger Bunny, at August 2, 2007 at 10:52 AM  

Like everyone else here, I'm very glad to hear y'all are okay.

By Blogger Carol Elaine, at August 2, 2007 at 11:04 AM  

Yes. M. Smalls birth Mom is okay!!!

By Anonymous Kristin, at August 2, 2007 at 11:38 AM  

I don't know anyone that lives in Minneapolis or St. Paul, but I immediately thought of the people I "know" on the internet. I am truly glad you guys are ok.

Glad y'all are okay! I worried about you guys when I read about the bridge.

Glad to know your family is all still together. I forgot how many people I know of in Minneapolis that could have been there. One of our coworkers was gone and we were relieved to find out she had called in sick this morning. It's a weird thing to be relieved about something you didn't even know you were worried about.

By Blogger Emily, at August 2, 2007 at 3:06 PM  

SO glad to hear you guys are okay; though right away of you, even though I only know you through this blog.

By Blogger Mandy, at August 2, 2007 at 9:17 PM  

I didn't hear the location at first, I just kept hearing Mississippi River and I thought, you know, Mississippi. So it didn't click right away that it happened where you are. I'm glad you're all okay.
