PennWell is headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., and many of us watched the news and weather with trepidation as the tornado hit Oklahoma City on Monday, May 20. Oklahoma City is about 100 miles west and slightly south of Tulsa, and the storm was headed northeast. We in Tulsa were extremely lucky that the system that spawned this tornado, which was 1.3 miles wide and had estimated peak winds of 200 to 210 miles per hour, passed to the north of our city.

Those who remember NBC's Saturday Night Live of the early 1990s undoubtedly recall Al Franken, who, after serving as both a cast member and writer for the show, has since become a New York Times best-selling author, a talk show host, and, most recently, a United States Senator from Minnesota.
I am so excited for the U.S. hydropower industry right now!
