Recently, on a walk in Seattle, our executive team was impressed with this industrial site. It brought up the question: How many cities have their own steam plant? We have no idea, but we like the way this one looks especially on one of those "ohhh-so-common blue-sky-days" in Seattle. The location of this plant is actually pretty close to the Elliott Bay waterfront and so we wonder if it uses sea water to make the steam. If you know, leave us a comment. We did find a Wikipedia article that gave us some info, but didn't answer the sea water question. It seems like the answer should be yes.

Have a good day and thanks for stopping by John's Island. And we hope there is nothing here to get anyone steamed up!
