cooling towers (both nuke and coal mentioned), how do those things work?

Those damn liberals, they were told of the damaging environmental effects of nuclear energy.

both owned by Akron, Ohio-based FirstEnergy.

Wow.  Either I'm still hung over or I need new glasses because I swear I read that as FistEnergy.

Does the snow glow in the dark?

I live five miles east the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. The clouds created by the cooling towers have been HUGE this week.

/that's all I've got

Don't eat the green snow

Neat and not exactly unexpected side effect of all that steam escaping into the atmosphere.

That said, I'd rather get nuke steam effect snow than coal fired power plant steam effect snow. There would be less radiation, considering living downwind of a coal plant exposes you to all sorts of fun stuff that far too few get riled up about because coal doesn't generate the outrage nukes do.

//I'm considering that the steam turned snow would contain pollution from the coal as it forms.

I have the perfect reality show concept for him, and he gets to be the star. We film him getting ready to take a trip to the International Space Station. Then we launch him into the sun.

How can anything with Beaver in it be bad.

YAY nukes! This should bring out all the derpers with a hardon for nuclear energy.

So by hot you really mean it's hot?

Watch out where the huskies go and don't you eat that glowing snow/

It's really a steam issue, the source doesn't matter.  Rosie O'Donnell farts do the same thing.

In the 1990s the Bowater paper mill paid $10 million to settle lawsuits claiming its weather pattern caused a wreck on I-75 in Tennessee.

I'd love to vacation in Beaver Valley this time of year.

I got stuck in this. Left a little late from work and route 79 was going 14mph instead of its customary 70mph. Called my wife to let her know snow was bad and roads were not groomed. She berated me for making excuses for leaving work late again. Got a few miles down the road and there was no snow at all. Put the pedal to the metal and got home. Didn't think much of it until I read about it online.
