Last day in SD a blast!

It’s not every day you get to see a building blown up that you’ve seen your entire adult life.  It just so happens that the power plant in Chula Vista, CA was just such an opportunity.

My Dad and I ran several cameras to give different perspectives of the South Bay Power Plant implosion and had a great time with it.  As soon as we got home, we cut a little video so you, too, can enjoy the leveling of this plant.

The plant was completed in 1960 and was decommissioned 2 years ago.  On February 3, 2013, it was reduced to rubble in less than 20 seconds.  The explosions were so powerful that standing 1/4 of a mile away, people’s hair was blown back.  7 miles away my Mom actually felt the explosions rumbling the ground.  Now that’s impressive.
