Power for the people

We only had a short drive from the hotel in Milton, OH to our next family near Lansing MI, which was lucky considering the day was promising to be quite hot. One of the interesting things we saw was the operating nuclear power station with steam coming out the top.
On the left is one of the many water towers spotted around the countryside (worth 1 point to quick spotters). I asked the children to think about how they would paint these considering how high they were and all of the towers had either advertisements or the county/city name on them. After many guesses we finally saw one being painted, with the painters using ropes attached to poles sticking out from the top. Certainly not a job for those nervous about heights.
