A place to say thanks for the enjoyment, education and laughs on the WEATHER ZONE FORUM.

I'm a relative newcomer, joined to keep in touch with local Gippsland Weather but picked up a bit on the journey. Not much, just a bit so thanks to those who took the time to post and explain "stuff".

To the Mods and Admin, no doubt on a personal level you are also sorry to see the forums finish up, thanks for the work you have put in.

regards

Peter / Samboz

Peter / Samboz sad times with the forum closing. I will miss the daily posts that I have looked at every morning since joining weatherzone. As a mod I wont miss the abuse for trying to keep things within the guidelines (never from any Victorians) Made many friends and met up with a heap of them and if it wasn't for weatherzone these friendships would never had happened. I wont be joining up with any other forums so if you have facebook please look me up as I am always talking about the weather on there along with posting photos. My name is the same as I have on here.

And to the Vic posters. Thanks for the posts and the memories.

Well done on long term moderation Loo.

Logansi, would be very keen to join a small forum (we are one anyhow).

Think I'll post Vic stuff on AWF and other stuff on that foul mouthed other forum (than Ski.com) for the short term (can remember its name on this PC).

I was devastated when I heard the news.

I know I haven't been around much over the past few years, as 2 jobs and 2 teenagers kind of restricts my time, but my love for the weather has not faded. Having joined in Dec 2004, and modding since Sept 2005, Weatherzone has been a huge part of my life for so long. To think the kids weren't even in school back then, and now my eldest is doing Year 12. My youngest was 15 months...he's now just about to turn 16.

I have loved my time on here, and it has been a lot of time and energy over the years, it's sad this community will no longer exist. I have met some wonderful people online, and in person, learnt so much more than I could have ever imagined, laughed, cried, watched in awe, read in disbelief real time the observations from around the country during severe events, and that will be hard to encapsulate and move elsewhere. I have been a member of AWF and Ski.com for many years, as well, but for me, they just won't come close to Weatherzone...but may be in time.

Thank you all for your valued friendships, your knowledge, your time, your photos, and your patience as I cracked the moderation whip wink It has been one wild ride, and I will miss it dearly.
