That time I went to Pennsylvania and learned what a cracker plant is

 

A quick trip to Pittsburgh and back gave me a chance to check out (sadly, not at night though) the Royal Dutch Shell (they’re spelling that name wrong, imho) cracker plant along the Ohio River in Monaca, PA.

Until yesterday, I had no idea what a cracker plant was, outside of baking snacks. Luckily for all of us, The Times is on it. I’ll do the easy part and share a few photos from across the river. And then you can read the article in the New York Times to learn more.

FYI: Near as I can tell, there’s only one tower crane on this site. And then a whole bunch of varied, humongous others.
