With constant support and feeback from readers, the Vagaries' visitor counter has crossed the 100,000 mark! It may be a normal thing for professionals and institutions, but for a small time blogger like me, it's a big thing, from 50000 in December 2010 to 1,00,000 today.
Constant interaction with friends and readers, has helped me in bringing Vagaries to its present international status.
My theory has always been to put in proper facts by explaining them in the simplest form.
Each prediction has been, as far as possible, supported by charts and reasoning. Its always prudent for a meteorologist to explain and not just prophesise. Things may eventually fall in place or go either way. Like I said, I am a meteorologist, not a magician.
Vagaries has constantly kept you updated with extreme records and events. When we started our 'Interactive' page, the inputs from readers were very helpful, and a variety of information and pictures became possible.
Our Partner, Mark Vogan, has contributed tremendously towards the popularity of Vagaries. His constant support, and a permanent page on his blog, made his readers from
Europe "aware" of Vagaries.
Special inputs from Cmdr. Potey, Akshay, and svt has added more substance to the matter and contributed to Vagaries' popularity.
, your inputs of "buckets" of rain in Mahableshwar, and the rain figures, has drenched us with valuable information from head to toe! Shiraz
Akshay, thanks for putting up a special write up on your blog.
NT, your cross-examining has kept me alert. And, without Ashokbhai's expertise, my forecasting would be a "half-hearted attempt".
Neeraj and Tyrone's constant input and feedback from Kathmandu and
has given Vagaries the proper sub-continent touch. PWP, our exchange of views has benefited both. Karachi
Max, has always touched up my records, and kept the inflow of record breaking temperatures and events coming, from
and elsewhere. Thailand
Emkay, your touch of humour and comments has many a times had me re-reading my blog!
And of course sset, let me admit, I cannot bring or carry the rains to the
Pradeep, I feel, with your superb inputs and rain totals, readers are now waiting more for this than the actual Vagaries write up.
Special thanks from Vagaries to: Akshay (Nagpur), Ananth, Ashokbhai (Rajkot), Atul, Cmdr. Potey (Mumbai), emkay (Panvel), Ganesh, Jayesh, Jim (Accuweather), Junaid (Panvel), Mark Vogan (Scotland), Max (Thailand), Neeraj (Nepal), Pakistan Weather Portal, Pavan (Pune), Pradeep (Chennai), RK (Delhi), Sanjay (Mumbai), Shiraz (Mahabaleshwar), Shridhar (Thane), svt, sset, Tyrone (Karachi) and a host of other "anonymous" readers who have supported and guided Vagaries regularly with very valuable inputs.
I appreciate the "likes" from my "fb" friends..
And above all, thanks to everyone for allowing me to feel that you actually trust my forecasting -:)))
There are around 500 number of Rain Gauge stations available in Tamil Nadu which are maintained by WRO, TNEB and mostly by Revenue Departm...
