Tell me about it.

In July 2002, I wrote "Make It Never Was", a Wyatt Ferguson story about 
(among other things) nuclear winter. 
(http://www.eilertech.com/stories/neverwas.htm)  On February 24, 2009 
(slightly before I joined RACC), I wrote its sequel "Beyond the End". 
The story took place in 2023.  The last band of survivors had lost 
contact with the rest of humanity in 2022. 

The "Twilight of the Superhuman World" (as published in RACC) arc would 
start in November 2009, leading to that same Icepocalypse.  Wyatt got 
out (for the second time, with his relatives this time) a year or two 
ago, in stories yet to be written.  I think the end is here.
