Wow

So, in case you live under a rock, I'm sure you heard about the tragedy that hit this state today. While I'm two hours away from it all, I have been on that bridge so many times. I'm shocked. I'm worried for the many friends I have up there that haven't posted anything on myspace or anything. I know I'm overreacting and that they're most likely fine, but I won't feel completely OK until I have actually heard from each and every one of them telling me that I'm paranoid and overreacting.

I was just glued to the TV last night. I couldn't get over how big that bridge was and the fact that it's all just a big pile of rubble now. I'm so thankful that more people weren't hurt, but even though they decreased the death toll, I'd be stupid and naive to think that it was going to stay that low.

None of it seems all that real to me. So I just stay glued to the computer, refreshing and checking emails, waiting for them to tell me that they're all OK.

It is really awful, I was pretty shocked this morning when I saw it. It makes it worse when you have been on that bridge yourself - I felt that way after watching the twin towers collapse, knowing I had been up there four times.

My thoughts and prayers are with you while you wait for word from your friends. We generally don't watch news, but happened to catch that particular piece last night. There's been so many overpasses and bridges collapsing lately, it seems -- makes me a little nervous if I have to use one.
