I began the long trek back home from summer school late this afternoon. As I neared Nottingham I could help but notice some power station cooling towers which were gently steaming in the early evening sun against a thunderous sky. As luck would have it there was an exit from the motorway there so I turned off and followed my nose for half a mile until I found a suitably high view point to stop safely. The spot where I parked up was directly underneath some power cables, stretching between a row of pylons, and I was staggered at the amount of noise the electricity made as it surged through them.
