Hot, hot weather!

Post by Bertino56 »

Abnormally hot through June and July here in southern Oregon
and the Pacific Northwest.
It's so nice to wear a skirt and feel free-flowing air through my
vital parts.
I now have more "freedom" than before, to enjoy my collection
of skirts at more times and in more places.
The collection hasn't changed much. Two serviceable blue denim,
five Laura Scott five-pocket, three camouflage Bayou from Cabela's,
one black Skirtcraft.
All knee-length, belt loops, zip front. I know, I'm the most boring
guy in Skirtcafe!

Hola Bertino56,
I was not aware of other SK "ducks" about the State, save Dave in PDX. I'm hanging out in Oregon too currently trying to help my folks with the notion and reality of a transition to Assisted Living, but we always try to get in an excursion south when here as we still "own" property in Jackson County and have many friends in the Rogue Valley -- and I'm always skirted, mostly "boring" too, but I toss in some more flamboyant bits from time...be great to create our own 'SK' for a brief meet up if we can make it down that way this trip. If keen on such, let us know what town to put on the route.

I have a friend in Talent who dons skirts with some regularity, but mostly at home or for his Hawaiian connections. Not sure of others but I'd think there were certainly be a few in Ashland -- you've certainly got the Hot, hot weather!

Hot weather :?:
When I finally went to bed Friday morning at 3:30AM, the outside temp was 82*F :!:

And people wonder why I wear skirted garments :|
(Love that natural cooling effect :D )

It's been rough in the mornings in Florida for walking, been wearing my running kilt (JWalking Designs) every morning and it helps for sure, more comfortable than shorts thanks to the breeze. :D

I agree the cooling effect is great. I also am pretty boring, gray and black mostly. I also think that if we are going to get skirts more accepted we need to be boring until people get comfortable seeing men in skirts. I have only been wearing skirts since March and haven't had anyone say anything negative. Keep wearing them and hopefully it will become mainstream soon.

Well we have had a cooling today as it only got up 106F.
I am glad I wear skirts as it helps to be cooler than if I was wearing shorts.
My home is insulated but with the thermostat 77F the temperature in the house was 84F and the air conditioner was running full speed. This was 2 days ago the outdoor temp was a warm 113F.
