Won't be much to see

This evening I drove along the Kanawha River hoping to see a boat or two and to take a look at what's left of the old Dick Henderson Memorial Bridge before part of it is blasted into pieces Friday morning. I got to see the Iron Duke upbound...

... but when I saw the bridge, I was disappointed.

There's not much left on this side of the river to blow should the explosives go off on schedule at 10 a.m. Friday. I might not even go out of my way to see or photograph it. They're still taking steel down with a crane and such, so I'll probably stay in the office and get some stuff for next week's paper done early.
