Thank You & Goodnight

After much consideration, I've decided to step back from weathergc.

I've enjoyed providing updates and volunteering my time - especially during severe weather events. However unless I pay for advertising & promotion out of my own pocket, I'll never reach a wider audience and cannot justify the continued time and expense.

The Facebook page, Twitter account and Blog will remain as an archive, but as of today will be in "offline" mode and will not be monitored or updated.

Please refer to Bureau of Meteorology www.bom.gov.au for all weather and warning information.

Thank you for following, hope to see you sometime again in the future.

Take care, Jeff.
