Hotter than the hubs of hell. Had to stop and experience A/C at Target.
They had a Starbucks. We also wanted to wait out the rush hour.
Asked a nice lady in the washroom how long rush hour is for? She said it depends if you are going north or south.
Thank god we were going south. We rested / waited 45 min. Then headed out. South was fairly good. North had 3 Lanes of Traffic backed up for 20 miles.
*****NOTE TO SELF*****. Never. Never go north thru Portland.
