Meetings and straw polls and chat, oh my

It’s not been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon Northfield for me.

The face-to-face meetings and online engagement activities for both the  City of Northfield’s Downtown Parking Management plan and the Northfield School District’s Transformational Technology proposal have kept me busy this week.

Gillian Wigley, January, 2013crashed Toyota Gilly Wigley recovering at home

And to top it off, my daughter Gilly was in a serious car accident in Minneapolis earlier this week so I’ve been making daily treks to the Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) all week. As of this morning, she’s doing much better: no apparent complications from a concussion and a lacerated liver, and she doesn’t have to have surgery for her fractured pelvis. She’s moving over to the adjacent Knapp Rehabilitation Center later today.  If you know her, contact/follow her on Facebook.

Update 2/15: Gilly is now recovering at our house, camped in a bed in our living room (right photo)

    Griff – What a week! I had heard that had been in an accident, but had no idea how serious it was. Know that she and your family are in everyone’s thoughts as she undergoes rehab.

    Jane/Kathie, thanks for your kind comments.

    Gilly is now recovering at our house, camped in a bed in our living room. I’ve added a photo to the bottom of the blog post above.
