Minneapolis Morning

We headed down to the farmers market at the Guthrie this morning and then took a stroll across the stone arch bridge. We even stopped by the Minneapolis Public Library which is the first time I’ve been there since they re-did it. Turns out it has a really nice kids area and a kids bathroom that […]

Freeway Drive Time Signs Are Amazingly Accurate

Now that I have a longer drive to work, and into the big city, I’ve found the freeway drive time signs to be very handy, and really accurate. I pass three of these on my way to work and they help me decide which path to take. Some days they say it’ll take me 9 […]

Get Weather Alerts via Twitter

Lets face it, some of us are on Twitter more than we are paying attention to most other forms of communication. We can tell you what was recently blogged, but we sometimes have no idea what’s going on outside our window with the weather. Wouldn’t it be nice to get them to come to you, […]

35W Bridge Collapse – 1 Year Later

It’s been one year since the 35W bridge gave way and it’s still unbelievable. WCCO has a great retrospective on the survivors, the responders and others at the scene of the bridge collapse. Especially moving to us is the Coulter family and Paula, whom my wife use to work with.  The doctors didn’t think she’d live, let alone walk and […]

Thousands line up for Barack Obama

My wife and I went downtown Minneapolis today not knowing anything was going on. We did a little shopping and then had lunch. After lunch we noticed a line was forming through the shopping center. It was across the street from the Target Center and we had no idea what everyone was there for. Taking […]

Unimaginable – 35W Bridge Collapses

Tonight, just after 6pm, the interstate 35W bridge collapsed into the Mississippi river in Minneapolis. Please keep those affected in your thoughts and prayers. I once lived just a few miles from that bridge and drove it quite often. It’s hard to believe that it’s now gone.

They have 10,000 pounds of explosives and 45 […]
