Mom wanted to know how her son was doing so we gave them a call. He is doing good. His daughter, my niece, had a panic attack on her first day of college. I am so glad that she was only a 1/2 hour from home so that she could come home and get her bearings. She's back in the dorm tonight, getting ready for classes tomorrow.
It has been raining all weekend which means that the search and recovery efforts at the I-35W bridge had to be suspended. Meanwhile, more info has been coming out about the bridge and it's insufficiency. MN-DOT was trying to figure out a way to fix beams that were cracking. It's scary stuff and it sounds like there were several alarming issues that should have been addressed way earlier. Brakes put on Bridge Work
Mom has really been with it for the last week. It's uncanny and I can almost believe that nothing is wrong. She is confused, but not nearly as much as she has been in the past. It is a welcome relief for me. I know the pendulum can swing the other way though at a moment's notice.
