Feds: effort to close Vermont Yankee "deceptive"
So the time bomb upriver continues to tick.

All right, well, besides researching bug-out locations farther away, is there anything we can do locally? I mean, besides waving signs and appealing to our elite overlords.

How can we, the surrounding communities, prevent or prepare for it?
