SOMETHING did happen beneath the obvious smoke screen of a bumbling worker.
The DAY BEFORE the "blackout" in San Diego, my bro drove out to San Onofre to watch the sunset. As he passed the entrance to the beacch parking
lot, he noticed a HUGE metal tube beiing loaded onto a semi-flatbed, suspended in some kind of steel grid. Inside was what looked like a giant motor.
Whatever was being loaded appeared to come from the nuclear reactors (the cylindrical "breasts" that define the San Onofre power plant) where a
giant crane was poised at the water's edge.
Finding it odd, but with a lot on his mind, my brother turned his attention to setting up on the beach to do some Yoga. He stretched out on his beach
blanket as the setting sun shown around him and drifted off to sleep. He awoke just after full-darkness to the sound of helicopters coming in and
landing next to the reactors. All the other cars in the parking lot were gone and he was the only one left on the beach. My bro observed six to
eight large cargo helicopters (double bladed) fly in from Pendalton and land next to Onofre's nuclear reactors. He couldn't see if anything/anyone
was being loaded or unloaded because all the cargo 'copters were flying IN TOTAL DARKNESS.
Why would half a dozen cargo helicopters be flying into a nuclear power plant with ALL their lights off? OBVIOUSLY, they didn't want to be seen by
the general public.
Gathering his gear as quickly as possible, my brother hopped in his car and sped back towards the highway. As he passed the parking entrance, he
noticed that the giant semi flatbed with the huge payload was gone.
The next morning -- the SAME day as the "blackout" -- I drove down to San Diego from LA for a reception. As I passed the San Onofre nuke plant, my
companions exclaimed their amazement with a tubular structure suspended within a steel "cage" w/in a "cage" on the back of a semi-truck. They
described the structure as massive, but since I was driving, I missed it.
That afternoon the power popped off, and our evening event was cancelled. None of the street lights worked, cell coverage was spotty to none, and the
blackness that fell upon the city was only lessened by the moon's meager light. We all wondered if it had anything to do with the nuke plant. The
cover of darkness would help a covert mission go unnoticed. We later learned that a "7-car pileup" on the 5 fwy blocked traffic in both directions.
Electricity was restored around midnite. A friend living in north-county said that something had happened at the plant and it had since been buzzing
with activity. Undaunted, we set out to make the long drive back up to LA. It had been a sunny day and as evening fell, there was great visibility.
The stars were out en mass.
We hoped to catch sight of San Onofre from the highway, but an incredibly dense fog strangely fell upon us. As we rolled pat the plant, we could
barely see the tail lights from the car in front of us, much less the nuke reactors yards away on the beach. All the highway lights were dark up into
central Orange County.
What are your thoughts on this ATS'ers?
What could those tubular engine things be?
Did anyone else see the same?
