Atomic energy reactor shut down

In 1992, the Yankee Atomic Electric Company's nuclear reactor was permanently shut down due to reactor vessel embrittlement, after more than 31 years of service. When built, it was the third atomic reactor in the U.S., and the first for commercial production of electricity. The $57 million plant, located at Rowe, Mass., on the Deerfield River, began distributing electric power on 10 Nov 1960. The reactor achieved self-sustaining nuclear reaction on 19 Aug 1960. The pressurized light-water reactor produced 125,000 kilowatts of electricity. The company was formed by twelve New England utility companies. Decommissioning began in 1993.«

"You must park your cars on the odd numbered side of the streets."

Joe said, "Jeez, okay," and got up from his coffee.

The next day they were sitting down with their morning cups of coffee. The weather forecast was, "There will be 2 to 4 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared.

You must park your cars on the even numbered side of the streets." Again Joe replied, "Jeez, okay," and got up from his coffee.

Two days later, again they're sitting down with their cups of coffee and the weather forecast said, "There will be 6 to 8 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the..." and the power went out and Joe didn't get the rest of the instructions.

He turned to Joan, "Jeez, what am I going to do now, Joan?"

Joan replied, "Aw, Joe, just leave the car in the darned garage today."
