Great to see you joined Lee, I will help contribute to the NQ thread and keep it going since RWM is abandoning us :cry: .

Lily I just went into hibernation for the winter. Gee I hate cold weather and there is usually nothing happening weather wise. We even managed a frost this year :sccary: , think I just stuck out my toe that morning and decided to stay in bed (happened a few times over the winter). Things have warmed up and starting to get abit interesting, I will try and contribute more.

(I love all the different smilies :laughing: )

Where to start?

My Name is Peter, I have always followed storms, as they have come into canberra. I have weather knees from too much hockey, I was in Darwin for Cyclone Tracy, and a couple of smaller cyclones. Whilst I was in darwin I had a phobia about thunderstorms, which I only overcame by watching them really close up, now I am hooked. I am 40, I have 3 kids who don't come when I go out into the storms armed with my 40th birthday present, a Nikon D3000, a tripod and an umbrella. I found this site when a guy suggested I follow the twitter profile, which i now do. I have taken 3 decent photos of lightning, many photos of clouds, and I am grateful to the pro photographers giving me pointers. I am a long time WZ member, but I know people who are on here and not on WZ - so I can interact with them beyond the twitter 400char limit.

I have set up a redbubble profile, with the dim hope of raising money for new lenses, cameras, etc.

I am interested to see the discussions and other member photos - I learn best from interaction and example.
POW! ZAP! I don't chase storms, I patiently wait for them to come to me.... Usually the soaked guy with the dry camera, atop a mountain, out of running distance from the car...

Hi Peter!!

It is fantastic to have you on board!! :) You are one of many that has transferred over to the AWF and it's great to know that you follow our twitter feed (for when we have time to update it!!) :D

Your experiences through Tropical Cyclone Tracy and others must have been amazing! You sound like me when I was younger. I also had a small phobia with lightning, but I've overcome that like you. ;) I think when you say that you are 'hooked', we know what you mean. Are your kids at all interested in weather? Or are they too young yet to appreciate the true power of it all?

Don't be afraid to share your photos in the relevant threads either, or ask questions!! We're all here to help and have a great time!

Thanks for joining!! :D

Hi All,

New member who has grown tired of the hijacking of another forum by one or two members claiming to be god's answer to the weather. I actually recognise some of the member names in here so it's good to see. I noticed Ciarns AWS isn't on your mp. :(
Cheers Wetspot (Cairns - deep ,deep north))
