    • we got a BIG dump of torrential rain BEFORE it made tropical storm status (it was a depression).
      Then it rained on and off all day after. Lots of lightening too.

  1. Where is the dirt for the sandbags from? Rocky Flats plutonium plant clean-up sent sandbags for Katrina. Gotta wonder if the “sand” is contaminated dirt. Fits perfectly with the dilute to deceive policy. Are the generators working at Waterford and Riverbend?

    • shoot … I forgot about he nuke plants … watch if the power stays on. RSOE map will show little symbols for power-out areas.

      • Not just power outages. Recall that either because of that open phase problem or breaker defects or both, Riverbend nearly melted down in Dec. or Jan. due to lightening strike – I guess it was a power surge. And, Waterford has had some ongoing problems with generator ventilation or something. All but one US reactor has open phase defect and most seem to have many defective breakers.

    Excerpt:
    The following 34 U.S. nuclear plants were identified in the NRC’s 2011 report as being at heightened risk of flood damage due to upstream dam failures.
