It is done, the Plant Branch smoke stack came tumbling down

Well after 38 years the 1001 feet tall smoke stack is no longer.  I admit I felt a little nostalgic when it came down.  I have watched this a few times and I didn't say a word.  I just realized I didn't say a word.  You can hear Donald say WOW, you can hear dozens of people taking photos. You can hear one poor fella say "do it again, I didn't get that" who wasn't ready at 8:02 when she came tumbling down.  

 

It is gone.
