A day from now I imagine I will be laying on my couch in sweatpants, watching football and wallowing in self-pity for having gorged on too much turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie and all the other accoutrements associated with Thanksgiving.
For those in our international audience, the American version of Thanksgiving is thought to be a derivative of a celebration that first took place during the early 1620s in Plymouth, Mass., which was, as the name might suggest, a day reserved for “giving thanks”.
It seems prudent then that we at HydroWorld.com take a brief moment to reflect on all the hydroelectric industry has to give thanks for this past year, and for all our friends around the globe, we hope you have as much to be thankful for as we do.
This year has been an exciting year for hydro power both at home in the U.S. and abroad, and though there have most certainly been downs, it feels like we’ve got a lot more to celebrate than lament.
So, that said, Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at HydroWorld.com, and Hydro Review and HRW-Hydro Review Worldwide magazines.
We hope all of you have as much to be thankful for as we do, and we hope the coming year gives us just as much to celebrate in 2014.
