Trojan Implosion

I just had to steal that title from the Fox people that were running ads for it all week.

Today was a historical day, or at least I like to think so. Today is when they imploded the cooling tower to what was once the only nuclear facility in Oregon. I remember back in 1993 when they first mothballed Trojan. They had tons of ads running about how many jobs would be lost if it happened. However, voters were just not that friendly towards the idea of a nuclear plant being in operation so close to home. So, the reactor bit has been shipped up to Hanford and there is still a bit there that can't be removed. The last thing to go was this bit of a cooling tower. This photo was taken by my husband which you can see more of on his blog. If you want to see what it looks like now check out KATU's site.
