I know, I'm finding it very hard to accept.

Even though the community here has shrunk, it's still a community - one which I believe should not be discarded. Hopefully it can be saved somehow, I still love to chat on here about events etc with like-minded people.

I may not post here much but I do enjoy laying in bed sometimes and read up on past events now and again!

I agree, it shouldn't be discarded. [censored] form from above in my opinion.

This place was once upon a time the bees knees mate.

Perfectly balanced between the rise of social media and web blogging.

The 12 years I have been on here and the incredible weather events that have occurred in the meantime are to blame I swear. $hit has gone down over the last decade. Many Cyclones, many droughts and many floods. So much anger at Townsville never getting rain, and now I hate the rain after this year.

as Trav said, so many weather events, been some great stuff posted in here over the years. This place went off before facebook came along, even a few years after it kept going strong.

As things go probably my last post here. I'm leaning towards ski.com. Anyhow, very thick mist/fog in Townsville this morning.

Howdy North QLD fam.

I just wanted to say a catchya later and a big thank you to to you all. For the Tropical competitions, the amazing data and the over the top speculation. The North QLD forum has be the primary influencer in getting me interested in the weather.

I will never forget the lead up to STC Yasi. It was a wild ride!. Some shout outs to some users over the years! Nitso and Trav! Mick10! SirBoabTree! and Matthew! Some great weather talk happened up on this board right through the year. (the vic board doesn't have this kind of activity)

I'm down in Vic these days so I'll probably move on to ski.com.au. I'll retire the dawoodman handle (I no longer live in ravenswood) I'll use SitTophamHatt

Its been fun

Losing the WaetherZone forums will indeed be a huge loss. I'm only an occasional lurker, but have relied heavily on this forum, and the fantastic community you guys had here, during cyclones and floods.

Well, this is the last day that weíll be able to post on Weatherzone.

Iím still very disappointed that the forums are closing, and that itís going out with a whimper rather than a bang. There is so much history here, so much emotion and so many stories.

For my final thoughts on the current weather - another coolish if somewhat windy day in Townsville, with a chance of showers by the end of next week. Just another typical July day here.

Out of the 3 weather forums Iíve signed up with in recent weeks, ive settled on one to call home - https://www.ausweatherforum.com/

Theres 90 members and climbing, and in my mind is the most like Weatherzone in spirit. Hope to see you all there.

For those of you that I wonít banter, chat, or laugh with again - thanks for taking part in these forums, thanks for all the information and knowledge youíve shared, and thanks for being someone like me, someone I could share my enthusiasm of the weather with.

Rain hail or shine, Iíll never get sick of discussing weather. Good bye.
