That had to have been scary! Why wasn't the bridge shut down due to severe conditions?

We are getting the same thing down here in Indy. At least these 50mph wind gusts are showing me where I need to add some more caulking.

Okay, guys, close your ears. With my last child, I was sort of leaking, but no pain. I went in to work (70 miles from home), putting a garbage bag over the seat of my new car. Got in to work and water broke big time. I sped home and figured it a CHP or police office stopped me, I would be home free. I was rushing home to wash my hair and take a shower before heading to the hospital!!!

You and Seawaters are going to make me work harder this year if I want to be the top poster in this thread.
