When I heard that on the news, it sent a little shiver down my spine.

And I'm a rational person with a scientifc education who understands how safe nuclear power today actually is.

A friend worked there in the labs years ago. Their heating system died and powers to be took their time fixing it. She left shortly after coz she simply couldn't stand the cold or the incompetence.

Sellafield Ltd said the move, which came as snow and high winds affected
Cumbria, was to allow staff to leave early and get home safely.

It said the shutdown was nothing to do with the work at the site and there
were no safety issues.
Road and weather conditions across Cumbria are awful today, Jack.

I am prepared to believe them when they say it is precautionary.

I accept that, but the news still gave me a shiver.

Had it been any other nuke plant, probably not. But the very word 'Sellafield' in any negative context just spooks folk.

In other news, Bray now offically cut off from civilisation as N11 is closed.



Civilisation breathes a huge sigh of relief!!!!

As did Windscale, its earlier iteration.

Name change again?

I loved the fact that these two sentences follow one other.

"We have implemented a phased early release of staff from the site; this is being carried out in a safe, controlled manner.


"There is no reason to believe that there will be any off-site nuclear, environmental or conventional safety issues associated with the incident. The priority for the team is to protect our workforce, the community and the environment."
Whatever about science, common sense is for defo not the forte of the person who released that statement.

Statement just released by the Duck branch of the Irish Ornothological Society:

Ireland’s ducks have issued a statement: ‘We wish to point out that this is not a “grand day” for us. We like water but we’re not insane!

But you can still hide under the stairs at anytime.

Anyone else remember the Green Book every house received back in the 60's.
My father gave it to me to read/ look at the pictures, I think you were to close all the windows and hide under the bed, or maybe the stairs, or was it the kitchen table?
