Long Days and Bumpy Train Rides

So, I worked later than normal last night trying to cut down on my stack of work in my cube. From inputing quarterly reports to calling the regions to consolidate application scores, I still have not touched my trip reports from the District 2 (NE California) trip over two weeks ago.

Last night I got home, ate dinner with the fam, and then crashed just after 9pm. And I was up at 5am this morning to start it all over again.

On the train this morning, I think the heat of the Sacramento Valley is taking a toll on the electric grid as our Light Rail train came to a screeching halt on the American River Bridge on Hwy 160. Nothing like being jolted to a stop. We sat there for about five minutes before some power was restored: train operating power and the AC. Alas the overhead lights were still out by the time I got to Archives Station.

Hopefully today will not last as long....maybe it will if more things keep landing on my desk! Hopefully I can hit the pool after work tonight as Sacto is expected to fry again today at 105.
