    Kilt weather

    Was doing some running about today, and went casual. Still, I was not expecting to wear a kilt and t-shirt whilst walking the dog on the first day of December. High today was 57F.

    I’d expect it more in Memphis than in Southern Idaho. Usually, the temp barely crawls above the mid-30s this time of year…

    It’s actually a little warmish than normal this year even for us. I used to live in NYC and while I don’t miss those winters, I do wish I had more chances to wear more fall/winter type clothing.

    It's Always Sunny in ....

    Today's high temperature in Las Vegas was 60 F.

    There was a reason my ancestors kept migrating to warmer climates.

    Seasons Greetings to all

    Around 64 here in California.

    Personally, I prefer colder weather for kilt wearing. All the extras really keep me rather warm.

    Today here in Estonia it's -8c (about 17f) - had snow all week, kilts are optional - but this is about 2 years ago, same time of year.



    ...and by the time it rolls around to Burn's Night it usually hitting -20c (-4f).

    Kilty... as charged.

    Well... here (Windsor, ON Canada) it is 25 F/-3.9 C and sunny, nice breeze coming out of the south west @17 mph/27 kph - that's a wind chill temp of 10 F/-12 C. Now, THAT'S a bit chilly on the knees.

    :::UCKING and running::: Last week when our windchill was -28F (-33C) I was out in a knee length skirt, carhartt coat and muck boots doing chores in the barn. I guess you get used to it.
    Wore skirts/shorts until News Years Day in NorthDakota.
    It's all in what you're used to and protecting your core.
    Kudos to you all that wear year around
