Just a quick note to state that my family is all safe and accounted for. The only connection we've had, so far, is some friends who were on a paddleboat trip down the Mississippi. Their boat passed under the bridge about 15 minutes before the collapse.
They heard the noise and saw the smoke but were safely out of reach of the devastation. It made for a time of anxiety for Dancing Diva's BFF, who is the daughter of our friends, but they called her as soon as they could get through with word of their safety.
Please continue to pray for the safety of the rescuers, healing of the injured and strength for their families, and for peace and comfort for those who await news of missing loved ones.
In the meantime, I'll save the knitting posts for another day.
