2014 was actually a disappointing year. During the Quadrantids I had bad luck with weather and just before leaving for Revest du Bion at the end of July I became very sick. SoI I could not observe the southern summerstreams from Revest. The weather in the Netherlands in August and the rest of the year was very bad. There were a few clear nights and when it was clear that often happen outside the period with lots of meteor activity. Thus failed the Draconids , Orionids and Leonid campaigns.
Fortunately there were also positive notes. This year I could only observe in the Netherlands. And that was during 40 nights and for me that is a record! In addition, I could observe the Geminids during their maximum in 2014. A clear night during the Geminid maximum almost always guarantees high numbers of meteors. So I observed during 6 ,41 hours and counted 657 meteors.
