    Yesterday the 2,184' span Champlain Bridge which connects Crown Point, NY to Addison, VT was blown up in a controlled explosion during a snowstorm. Here is the AP pic and a link to the video. The video shows the explosion on both the NY and VT side for those who like to watch things blow up :D

    They are building a new bridge but for now using a ferry service so if you are traveling up this way, seek alternate routes!

    I saw the run on the news here in CT. I've traveled over that bridge a few times........hated to see it go, but it could be scary in the winter with a strong North Wind, like we're having here in CT today.

    Thanks for sharing, Jude!
