As usual when I do not write, it is a computer glitch. Well it was a software glitch and it was somewhat of a big deal.
Now the computer is fixed, but I live in the United States where part of a bridge collapsed last night. My computer is on the other side of the river where the bridge collapsed. What a mess the whole thing is. In no way is it like Oklahoma, but it is enough of an inconvenience that we will remember Oklahoma for a while. Having been near the bridges collapsing during the 1964 flood in California, I can tell you it takes a long time to put a bridge back up.
I was over the bridge twice yesterday. I had my hair cut today and the hair cutter said that her friend was the third car back from where the cars went off.
Supposedly we were to get money from the stimulus package and our state government, in their wisdom, spent most of the money in other places and when they did fix roads, they chose to do the easy stuff like repaving instead of going for the bridges that really needed work.
Today Mr. Radish and I tried to get the computer. The highway was backed up for miles. Today is is the start of Labor Day weekend and there is even more traffic on the road than usual. Naturally we know back roads. But there is only so many ways over the river. And each semi truck driver also knows those two lane back roads.
