We headed out to Flanagan Reserve for the weekend. We’d been out there before for New Year’s Eve, but a quick peruse of the BOM website showed us that we were not going to be in for any 46 degree days this time around.
Actually, we did consider pulling the pin after reports of potential storms and hailstones filled up our Facebook feeds. But in the end, we decided to wing it and hope for the best.
As we jumped on the Ipswich Motorway, we saw this.
And then the Cunningham Highway greeted us with this.
Visibility was pretty much non-existent and it was slow going. Not helped by one of the airbags on the Hilux dying a death just before we left either. We did wonder whether we’d made the right call. But once we got past Peak Crossing the weather had passed, and we arrived at Flanagan Reserve to a beautiful clear sky.
Glacial. But clear.
Yep, it was cold. The baby at one point had on a singlet, onesie, tracksuit, socks and a parka. She was so rugged up she could barely move. It was a pretty rude shock on my super short haired head, and I’m not ashamed to admit I slept in my beanie.
But it was 100% worth it for this.
But mostly, it was worth it for this.
