Wired.com posted an article today that said 2014 Kind or Sucked.
And in a weird quirk, 2014 here will indeed end at a very low point — in temperature at least.
And if future predictions hold true, at least for temperatures, the new year is so far looking more sunny and positive (i.e. at least above freezing).
To all of you: may 2015 be for you a safe, healthy, and prosperous year.
