Video of the Day: Demolition at the Hanford Nuclear Site

Why lie? It's a long weekend and I thought you'd appreciate a good demolition. Here you'll get several glorious angles on the takedown of the 284 West Power House at the Hanford Nuclear Site. The plant was coal burning and helped provide electricity and heat for buildings and plutonium processing during World War II. The demolition occurred February 18.
