All in a Day's Work: Unit 1 Short Outage Backpass Inspection

Yeah, back in the boiler again. Just to clarify things- Annie said she couldn't hear all that I said: the noise in the background is shotguns. Operators are busy shooting clinkers out of the pendants. They typically shoot 1000 boxes of shells to remove clinkers. It makes it really noisy in the other areas of the boiler when we are doing inspections. No, we couldn't be hit by stray pellets. It is a funny place to work.

shoot some more! I missed what you said, but am assuming you said they were shooting clinkers?
love you, you are my hero
