terrifying! (bridge story)

I hate bridges over water. Every time I have to go over one, I get nervous & don't breathe right until I'm off. This morning, I had the news on (my resumed favorite thing to do while getting dressed for school) and Matt Lauer starts talking about the bridge collapsing in Minnesota last night & next thing you know, I'm sitting on my bed (I usually just listen from the bathroom) and crying. So scary!!!

That's so scary and so sad -- very hard to watch.

Hayley - I totally thought of you and your phobia when that happened. It is becoming quite a freaky for me as well. That is just so sad!!

Ryan told me about this last night. That is so freaky. Since he is my little engineer he started to explain to me possible reasons for the failure. To me it seems like there should have been inspections and they should have noticed it was beginning to fail. It just blows my mind that the bridge could completely collapse without any advance warning. That is the scariest thing ever.

matt lauer said that the bridge was inspected in 05 and it was not given a satisfactory grading... they should've done something to fix it.

Oh I sooooo thought of you when I heard that. I said "Hayley just won't ever want to get on a bridge now!" That is so sad.

Kevin's brother and his family live there. Kyle "rides" that bridge often was all was well. Yikes. Scary things happen all the time.

eek, yeah. that freaked me out too. i have mini-panic attacks on freeway overpasses. i'm sure this will make it way worse.

Kristi said...

That scared the crap out of me, too. Those poor people...

You were the first person I thought of when I heard that story last night. I was hoping you wouldn't hear the news.
