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 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.

-22 at cook, -50 with the wind chill.
