It's bad enough that we don't have any work. Without power, we don't even have our computers (and hence the Internet) to keep us amused.
Due to some miracle, I actually managed to get to work at 8:00 this morning, instead of my usual 8:15. Of course, our power was still out, so that just meant I had an extra fifteen minutes of absolutely nothing to do. The guys out in the shop were finally sent home at 8:30 (they come in at 7:00, so they had been here for an hour and a half), but we lucky office folk had to stick around. The power finally was restored around 9:30, and the computers were ready to go around 9:45.
I was really hoping to go home, but it didn't sound like we were going to be allowed to do that even if the power stayed off all day. That being the case, I'm extremely glad it did come back. Having the computer to amuse me is a nice touch, but the air conditioning was a necessity. None of the windows here can be opened, and it was starting to get pretty warm in here.
If you look closely, you can see Cleveland's skyline in my glasses.

While we're talking about the Reds, I'd just like to say that Brandon Larson has done nothing to show me that he's a viable Major League Baseball player. He tears up Triple A when he's there, but hasn't hit a thing for the Reds. When Kearns and Larkin get back to the lineup, I hope manager Dave Miley keeps Ryan Freel in the lineup and plays him at third base and sends Larson to the pine, or better yet, sends him down to help out Louisville. Wily Mo Peña, on the other hand, is doing a decent job with the opportunities he gets. I don't think he's ready to be an everyday player, but he's definitely an asset to the thin bench.
