I went to check out the site of the crane collapse last night. I was curious to see it for myself -- maybe a macabre instinct, but an entirely human one. (Plus, I’m a journalist!) It was very strange, standing on Second Avenue and looking up into someone’s living room, where the wall opened in a gaping yawn.
It’s amazing how we live with certain dangers every day, without even being aware of them.
And speaking of dangers, for a compelling first-hand account of the Atlanta tornado, check out Jes’ blog here.
