Here in New Jersey, February 2015 was on the coldest months on record, with February 24 being one of the coldest days ever recorded in the state (Woolpack, in Northwestern New Jersey rang in at -20 degrees that day).
In the last 120 years, there have only been five months (out of a possible 1,440) that were colder than February 2015. In at least one of more location in New Jersey, the temperature was below zero on 19 days in February.
Why am I telling you this? I am telling you this because February was cold. The kind of cold that makes you curl up into a ball under every blanket you have in your house.
While the temperatures were falling, and stayed below zero for two thirds of the month, the lotus823 blog was just beginning to heat up. In February we tackled digital marketing predictions past and present, highlighted some Valentine’s Day campaigns that we loved, and welcomed a new member to the team in our first ever lotus823 employee spotlight.
Welcome to the lotus823 February Blog Round Up.
