Yep I spoke too early. Luckily dosn't look like a total loss.It sounds like it is thankfully less of a total loss than earlier reports were saying (when will I learn not to put faith in early reports?). This is still a tragedy but thankfully it sounds like there is plenty remaining structure to rebuild from.
The Atlantic said:“I saw this happening, and I had two thoughts,” Blaer told me of watching the cathedral engulfed in flames. “One thought was that I was kind of relieved that he didn’t actually have to see this happen. But on the other hand, he knew it so well and had so much information about how it’s constructed, he would have been so helpful in terms of rebuilding it.”
