The Umbrella

Are you an umbrella person?

For me, it depends on where I am. When I lived in Vancouver, umbrellas were essential and functional. The nice thing about Vancouver is that when it rains, it rains vertically. You have an umbrella - you don't get wet. Here in Halifax, rain tends to fall horizontally due to the wind, and umbrellas often die tragically via broken bones (ok... broken spokes).

When I was a teenager, I'd often go for long walks with my friend during hot summer rains,  and not even bother to try to avoid a drenching. As an adult, the novelty of being soaked has worn off - I'd rather be dry!

I'm linked with longdistanceloving today for an April Showers theme post.

Do you like the rain?
