San Onofre

We drove past San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station today.

Though it isn't currently generating anything today. The plant's two reactors (Units 2 and 3) have been shut down since January 2012 due to premature wear found on tubes in steam generators, which apparently contributed to the accidental release of a small amount of radioactive steam.

Oh, and for the record?  Though it is July, we still have June Gloom.

Just saying.


  1. it's not a chimney.

  2. It just isn't. Nuklear panner-plants don't have chimneys.

  3. well then, how does the steam get out?
