The news was not good for August 1, 2007 ...

"Minne-soh-ta.  Sadness."

My heart dropped when I heard the
news of the bridge collapsing
in Minnesota.  How I
wish I could span the distance
with my hands so it never
happened:  y'all are in my prayers.

"No Ordinary Storm"

This is no ordinary storm,
no garden variety of ...
normal dumping buckets on our
heads:  we're beyond cats and dogs.  It's
lyons and tygers and beyahs (o
my), this efficient producer
of wet and several thousand
bolts of lightning per hour.  Weather
for ducks and for ducking (hiding
like ostrich, keeping butt down to
avoid being struck).  Supposed to
clear up, heat up:  believe it when
it happens.  Who knows when that will --
been an unusual summer.

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (8/1)

Somebody gave a damn since 1990 when the first faults were discovered?
After seventeen years of neglect something was to give up.
A crude and plain criminal act.

Terrible tragedy, as is with all tragedies happening around the globe!
I saw that bus, and was relieved that God spared the lives of those young children, though my heart was deeply hurt for all the other lives lost.
Very sorry for this, prayers are with you in Your country.
Love Ch'erie

Yes I think even the most noted naysayers are starting to take notice that global warming etc is changing our weather patterns and not for the better. Good one Karla.

So tragic and so sad. The bad part is it can happen anywhere at any time.We who are blessed must stay strong. PLB&G. <Mikii>

A tragedy happend in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Crossed over that bridge many times when I lived in North Mankato........
As for the many unusual storms, enough all ready! I would like to know who was wishing for rain? You know it could be worse, it could be winter and then all the rain could have been ice storms instead. Think about it.......

Be safe,

It is unfortunate and so sad the loss.

They said that bridge had a 50 on the border for repair in other words...but I would say if it was on the borderline it did need repair. Terrible and yet...the people probably would have gotten angry if it was closed down for repair too~

However, this is an EYE OPENER...for them to go and check all the bridges throughout the US and make them safer for all travelers.

Accidents always happen. That's life. Can't be helped. It is a reminder that man is fallible and should learn that what he constructs, must be done well for the glory of God and the use of his neighbor and not for his own greatness and pecuniary gain. I am not accusing anyone here, but many accidents happen through neglect. I pray for the dead and their families. Victor

My heart is out for the people who lost their lives in the bridge collapse; Unusual weather changes is common these days all over the world. What are humans doing with the environment? Asks all non-humans in the universe.
thanks dear sister and friend

It HAS been an unusual summer so far, but it's a nice change from the heat that usually plagues our area this time of year! Very well penned! Love the humor interplayed in your words; enjoyed!

God be with those affected by the bridge collapse in Minnesota; God, what a helpless feeling!! *cringe* Really helps lessen your fear of bridges, doesn't it?? YIPE!!!!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn.
