4. For those of you in other places..........
Think of the most used stretch of freeway in your city. This bridge connected downtown Minneapolis to the University of Minnesota across the Mississippi.

I drove that bridge twice everyday to and from work - but thanks to the never-ending resurfacing, I took another route (for the 1st time in 23 years!)for the last month!

My older son's automotive school is just across that bridge and he took it twice a day at least - couldn't find him for 2 hours after the collapse due to cell-phone outage. Longest 2 hours of my life! (He's fine. Wasn't near at the time).

So, think of the bridge you have driven over thousands of times in your community.

This was that bridge.
