Another three minutes and I'd have been positioned right next to 16L as it took off. Sometimes a traffic light at a busy intersection stays red just long enough to keep a person from being on time or being a couple minutes too late. Oh, well, as a certain spouse would tell me, "Leave Earlier Next Time." (lol)
