My final words on MWIS – Mountain Weather Information Service !

There has lots been written and spoken on the subject but my main point was that I was upset they way it was handled! I had various messages in favour and against my views some pretty heated discussions on various forums!

In the end Sportsscotland has a big media support and back up and any rumours should have been sorted out before the statements emerged that were at least upsetting! This allowed lots of supposition on the subject. I have sympathy with Glenmore Lodge (a place and people I respect )who had to pick up the pieces. 

I hope whatever happens that Geoff Monk despite differing views   Is appreciated for what he achieved over many years of weather forecasting!

In my mind he revolutionised Met forecasting for simple people like me! There are many new and more technical sites and hopefully a compromise can be found and the great work of MWIS is appreciated. 

It is the way of the modern world that we move on quickly  and  to me the drawback is that things get forgotten of the effort put in to start a system.
