Queensland chill....

Post  mtbeerwah on Tue 21 Aug 2018, 10:11 am

I'm doing a shutdown at Millmerran Power Station at the moment. 200k's west of Brisbane. 
-5.4° when we started today, with 20-40 km winds.
I'm up 8 stories high...... this all equates to f÷@&ing cold. 

Queensland does get cold, just glad we only get short stints of it.

Middle of winter down South and I'm sooking if it gets below +5C

Are you sure you're still in the "Sunshine" state?

The "Granite Belt", which is a region west of Brisbane, always get into the minuses every year.  Stanthorpe is usually the coldest town in the Queensland region, which occasionally does get snow, and minus 7.
Even central Queensland,  and I mean dead center geographically, gets into the minuses.
I've just never had to work in these conditions before. 
But thankfully, only short lived.
