I tell ya… there’s nothing I love more than lots of rain, low temperatures, and wind. Oh glorious wind, you and only you can complete this illustrious trifecta of FUN!
The best part is when I get to work (after seven blocks of braving the elements) and the entire bottom half of my body is wet. The umbrella, despite all it’s best intentions, really only works when rain is adhering to the laws of gravity. But when then wind gets involved and decides “let’s have a party!” …well, then my friends, we get to experience the joy of sideways rain. Rain that looks at the umbrella and laughs maniacally. Because it knows… it knows that the umbrella can not defeat it’s mightly horizontal powers.
And me, well, I just get caught in the cross-fire of this epic umbrella vs sideways rain battle.
