Holy SHIZ! This looks absolutely insane!
And so, so scary!
Three people needed to be rescued last night in Washington State after a bridge connecting Interstate 5 across the Skagit River, two hours north of Seattle, Washington, COLLAPSED…and sent two vehicles into the water below!
And while it's not known just how injured these poor folks are, we're relieved to hear that no one was killed, and they were all safely evacuated from the scene and are being treated at local hospitals!
Washington Governor Jay Inslee said in a statement:

A-MAZING! We knew they could do it!!!!
Last week, we were absolutely THRILLED to learn that the Washington state Senate passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage!
Now, we're ECSTATIC to report that the house has voted in favor of the bill, which means….
IT WILL BE LEGAL FOR SAME-SEX COUPLES TO GET MARRIED IN WASHINGTON (starting this June).
Here's what Gov. Chris Gregoire had to say about it:

YES!!!! Our hearts are filled with so much joy!!! Another step closer to equality for all!!!
Last night, in a packed public gallery, the Washington state Senate passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage! Should the bill be approved by the house, Washington will be the seventh state of the union to allow gay and lesbian couples to get married.
An uproar of applause erupted in the gallery as the Senate passed the measure on a 28-21 vote. What was AMAZING was that four Republicans crossed party lines and voted with majority Democrats to get the bill passed. See! They're all not that bad! LOL! (We kid, we kid.)
Now, all eyes are on the House, which is expected to approve it and could take action on it as early as next week.
We're overwhelmed with joy! Such a wonderful moment for the gay community of Washington. They should feel very proud to live in a place where their voices are as equally heard as the rest of their fellow citizens. And a HUGE congratulations to the Senators who voted for the passing of this bill, putting equality above any personal pledges.
EQUALITY FOR ALL!
