An Appeal to the WU Community

I would like to make an appeal to the general assembly blogging community.

As some of you know, trHUrrIXC5MMX (Max) has abruptly left WU for an undetermined amount of time. GOOD BYE EVERYONE Me and him talk via e-mail quite regularly, and this is what he sent me today:

But about the rest of your email. .. it comes down to a simple question. ..
Am I "that" important on wu...? Why the scare? Im not a featured or have special distinction on wu...
Just being real.


I answered him, but I would like to hear from the general community how they feel about him leaving us like this.

If you don't know who he is or don't remember, he is the creator of the Hurricane Chart:
Community Hurricane Prediction Chart

One more thing, I know he doesn't like me sharing his e-mails to the world, but I think it's important for him to hear from all of his WU friends.

Oh man, my dad's funny. He sends first child to college and buys himself a 48 inch TV and a 20 inch reflector telescope. Second one goes to college and he buys several cameras, hardware, and another 20 inch refractor scope. I'm the third child, who knows what he'll buy when I leave for college.

I completely agree with auburn here, and with originalLT #10 above as to Max. And I'm glad to hear Max is just taking a break.

Astro, you are showing what a good heart you have. Kudos to you.

Just checking my blog, looked at the little MapLoco counter. Interesting little thing, it is.

One note: There is an AOI in the Central Pacific to the south-east of Hawaii. 0% chance of development, but it reminds me to check the Central Pac every once in a while as well.

Otherwise quiet around the world in all basins, there is a tropical wave approaching the edge of Africa and set to emerge into the Atlantic that the GFS has been hinting at for possible development.

Be back in the evening, thanks for visiting my blog everyone!

Astro, regarding your question in post #12, he may have but I don't know where it is. I do have his mailing address in Norwalk CT. So I could always send something there. I'm sure his Mom could get anything I send him in Norwalk, to where he is in Marietta Ga. I could also send Max a WU E-Mail, hopefully he'll check his WU mail once in a while.---Thanks for all you are doing here. LT

Quoting 10. originalLT:
Astro, if I could talk to Max, I would try to explain, it's not about , "importance" , it's about the sharing of ideas, opinions, information, discussions etc. That is what Max helped facilitate on WU and certainly on his blog. I feel we are all grateful for that. And that is why we all miss him. He was (and hopefully will be again) an important contributor to WU., You don't have to be a "Featured Blogger" for that. I hope he will see what we are all missing now.-- If you talk to him or E-Mail him, keep his spirits up.


Max said he had given you his e-mail address. Do you not have it anymore?

Please pardon the expression but, I can see that Max definitely has a good head on his shoulders. He'll be fine.

For the better, sometimes folks from every side of the equation just need to let things go for a little while. It always makes us stronger in the end.

I for one learned this the hard way a few years ago and I paid the consequences for my actions.

Don't leave us Max!! I enjoy our discussions during the "Off Season" about severe weather and you diagrams are friggin awesome!! I've been around here for quite some time (a lot longer than my join date says. I'm on my second profile.) I've seen way to many good bloggers leave for various reasons, and would hate to lose another.

Well, hope you do make it back around, but if you don't, I won't hold it against you.
