    Default Something to think about.

    Please take a moment to reflect on the brave teams battling for control of those reactors.

    I spent my share of time working in nuke plants. The thought of having to go into a reactor compartment with a fire hose always put shivers down my spine. I do not want to be in their shoes or any where near them. Good luck to them and everyone in that area.

    CNN reported last night they pulled all 50 workers from the site, and it is now unmanned. Not good....

    I heard it was temporary. I sure hope so. The thought of 6 of these things just running amok is terrible. Not that EVERYTHING happening in Japan is not but...

    Something else that I have not heard anything on is another large Hydrogen explosion in unit 4. 4 was supposed to have fuel in the spent pool. So if it built enough hydrogen to blow there must not be much water left in that pool.

    In fact this was miscommunication.
    They never left the site.
    They took shelter because apparently it was too hot to get in for a moment.
