On the first day of January it seems fitting to take a quick look back at the previous 12 months for a fond farewell to 2014. Though the weather was not as wet as 2013, the Upstate had several record-setting rainfalls and our yearly total of 65 inches is once again well above average. Our summer was not as hot as usual, with fewer days reaching into the 90s. And except for one particularly cold spell in November, with the temperature dropping to 16 degrees F on the night of the 14th, winter has been mostly mild.
As you look for purpose and happiness in the days ahead, remember this sage advice from Eleanor Roosevelt — “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
And my very best wishes to you and yours in 2015!
