Did a double-take on the way to breakfast, seeing this big honkin' plume rising west from the Beltline at Lake Boone Trail. Picture doesn't do it justice. Guess it's steam from New Hill, from the nuclear power plant. Then the mind travels back, to memories of chasing smoke plumes in prior decades, before being tuned into Carolinas Fire page, or having mobile devices to check local headlines. Heck, it's a rare treat to be surprised by an engine company running hot, with a scanner in the car at all times!
