I heard on another channel about stress fractures from a 2005 inspection, and they were redecking the bridge. although everyone doubts the redecking was to blame.

Gordy'* phone is 'all circuits are busy'.

I know he works for Allianz in Minneapolis. Is Crystal on his commute route?

Can't get ahold of Nate (lakevilleSSEi) either Busy circuits. Trying Marty.

Gordy'* commute to Crystal is the wrong direction.

Lakeville is due south of the Cities on 35W though. Does anyone have a home number for Nate? I can't get through the circuits to his cell.
