Central Queensland winter gets so cold local man nearly rolled his sleeves down.

Temperatures in Central Queensland saw a drastic drop in temperature this week when local Gladstone man, Beau Gan, almost rolled down the sleeves on his hi-vis shirt. Beau was up at 4.00am, to make it to the ferry for his 12-hour shift on the island, when he stepped outside in his shorts and thongs and noticed the temperature was colder than usual.

“Seven degrees, it was,” remarked Beau. “Yeah, she was a bit cold, especially on me toes. I walked around me truck to put me tools in when the wind picked up and I thought, ‘Hold on. I might actually roll me sleeves down.”

Worried that the boys at work would give him a hard time and ask him when him and his husband were planning on getting married in their long-sleeved shirts, Beau decided against it.

“I thought about it, but I persevered,” said Beau. “I even had me hand on me sleeve ready to go, but I looked around and pretended I was scratching a sand-fly bite instead.”

When Beau got to work that day, he neglected to mention this to his co-workers, instead noticing another bloke in the crib room who had their sleeves down. Needless to say, Beau and the boys spent the next 12-hours inquiring about the bloke’s homosexual history, with Beau’s payouts being the loudest. Don’t worry Beau, your secret is safe with us.
