Almost none of the longtime users and supporters of Weather Underground can believe how IBM acquired the best weather website in the world and quickly destroyed it. Those of us in tropical regions relied very heavily on this once great service to closely follow developments in the tropics. The tropics blog has been deleted from the site. The weather maps are now well below the standards of local weather broadcasting. How tone deaf is IBM to ignore the almost universal condemnation of what they did to a great non-profit website run by weather experts?
