It's been five years this week since my father passed away. Today, his birthday, this post is in his honor. He was a brilliant electrical engineer, dedicated to a career in all aspects of electrical and nuclear energy. Niagra was a special place for both my parents and I wish I could talk to him about this story. Happy Birthday, Dad!
