How to delay my commute

delaying my commute

First, get stopped on 4th Ave by trolley construction (the piers for the bridge over Division St, the Yellow Menace mainline, & Portland Traction’s East Portland yard,) and then, after getting past that, seeing that the Hawthorne Bridge was up so that the Western Comet could go sailing by with another load of gravel.

I didn’t get to the bridge fast enough to see the Western Comet go underneath, but even as it stood I still had to wait for the bridge to finish closing after I took this picture and went up to join the morning Hawthorne Bridge bicycle commuting mob.
