    I live really close to the Tennessee River, and to 2 large nuclear power plants.
    Here are some photos I took yesterday on my way home from softball games.....it was dark and cloudy, fixing to rain.
    I was across the dam, so the towers aren't as close as I could have got, but they are big. Only one is actually running, thus the reason there is smoke only coming from one stack.
    The other photos are part of the dam...and then one is the high bridge that crosses.

    So when(not if) the New Madrid cuts loose you're finished ?
    I prefer Google Earth for viewing nuke plants.

    A meltdown won't zap you. It will make the area around the meltdown more like Chernobyl than a nuke explosion.
