What great stories do you have from your weekend? My kilted story comes not from the fireworks show, but from the hurricane that delayed them. I had a stillwater Blackwatch medium weight kilt on for the day, and it started pouring like mad. We got roughly 8 inches of rain over the span of the day. The gutters on my new house started backing up, clogged with pine needles again. I threw on my rain jacket ( which is not hurricane proof ) and ventured out. Ladder went on the house, up the ladder I went and the gutters were cleared in a glorious battle of man vs. nature. The rain soaked me to the bone. The wind did things with my kilt that would drive the ladies mad . In one spot the water played havok with the dirt, and I sank up to my knees in mud. It was a disaster. Once everything was cleared and the torrential downpour was directed away from the house, I began the process of cleaning up. I wrang about a quart of water from my kilt, and chucked it into the tub. My boots are STILL caked with mud and wet inside. The raincoat? Finally dry it has been relegated to the back of the closet in case every other rain protection garment fails, including a trashbag with holes in it. For the fireworks, I was off to Onset, MA to watch them with the kids. Mother Nature was at it again, blowing wind up my kilt like a crazed loon with a leaf blower before I left the house, so I went the safe route and opted for shorts. I had no plans to wear my kilt as a shirt that night. The show was great and the kids had a blast with family and friends. What kind of great fun did you have over the weekend?
