I have yet another Gulfnado story for you. One of chivalry and honor. (And just happens to be about my favorite Squire, Alexandre Crane.) Lady Marita Boë and I just started a transportation shift when the storm started to blow in. They called us off our noble golf carts and into the guard house, where we spent the vast majority of the storm huddled in the back, listening to radio panic. While the storm still raged, Alexandre appeared in the doorway, soaked to the skin and cold, having been searching for me. (While I was warm and dry in the guard house.) I asked what he had been doing, and he replied he had spent the storm holding down the Whitacre Family Pavilion, doing his duty as a squire. I told him I would go back with him to help, but he told me to stay where I was and to find him after the storm blew over. (I am not typically one to change my course of action just because someone tells me to, but the warmth and overall dryness convinced me to stay.) When I tried to get him to stay with us, he refused. So I handed him the poncho I had put on before my transportation shift, and he went back down the road. Once the storm had cleared, I slogged my way through the mud to our encampment, only to find him running around, helping every place he could. In Northkeep's camp, he had helped pull the group pavilion out of the muck, at Whitacre, he had spent the entire storm cold rain running down his arms and back, physically holding down the pavilion (along with many others) to keep the newly painted and absolutely beautiful pavilion from flying away. Hours later, I finally had the chance to pin him down and force him to change out of his sopping wet clothes, because he just wanted to keep helping. He has made proud on both the chivalric and rapier field many times, but I have never been prouder than I was after Gulfnado, hearing how long and hard he worked, and how many he helped.
