Hi, Ziners,

Anne in Virginia mentioned giving up on umbrellas and just using coats, etc., with hoods. I tried that, and I'm sure it works fine if you don't wear glasses, but with glasses the rain gets splattered on and you can't see. I *could* use one of those flip out and back nylon hats, but they look dorky. I've been lucky, I guess, in not experiencing much wind when it rains, especially here in Southern California where it never rains .

I have all kinds of umbrellas, including one I got in Paris that has sketched famous Paris landmarks on it.
