Wow... I did not know that Entergy had moved Pilgrim to Vermont. I don't know how I missed that!

I guess you learn something new everyday. I can go home now, I have met my goal.  ::)
"I won't eat anything that has intelligent life, but I'd gladly eat a network executive or a politician."

                                  -Marty Feldman

"Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to understand that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
                                  -Ronald Reagan

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it.

                                  - Voltaire

I want to add something snarky, about it being part of the D&D plan.... but I'm just too tired, and not motivated enough to do so.

Sure Salem had to shut down, but look at all the others that weathered the storm; Duane Arnold, Monticello, Prairie Island, Point Beach, Fermi, Cook....

Not sure what the temps were at all of them but it hit -34 in Minnesota.
