Dec 24, 2008: Santa Brings the Coal (ash)
On the flip side, Tennessee Valley Authority did provide a really nice fly-by video of the spill area. Their website probably has the highest resolution .wmv, but you can also find it on the NY Times website and, most-streamable, this copy on youtube.

I'd say he made an ash of himself.

The video is better if you watch it while listening to Monkee Gone to Heaven by the Pixies.

The NYT is pretty big on the "may be" toxic content of the fly ash .. but not real big on kicking a***, when it comes to the engineering failure here.

85% of the problem is directly traceable to the engineers....

Moral of the story is to know where you house is on a potential flood plain. If there is a levee or dam up the hill from where you live you might be a fool if you bought a house and land in that location. We use to live in a neighborhood that was a bit hilly with various serene ponds about. I never could understand why anyone would have ever bought one of the two houses that were directly below the dam that held the pond water in. The top of their roofs were below the dam. I mean really, wtf.

My workplace was built on a flood plain. I'm told that this is because the land is cheap. We do get a few puddles now and then that we have to pump out, but overall I'm not too... ah man my coffee cup just went down river.

The wells in Brooklyn?? :O

I believe UT is asking you to update your location or educate yourself on NYC's water supply. Unless you really are using an old well.
