If you live on the East Coast then, simply put, you need an umbrella. We've been getting pummeled with rain and not the springtime mist but sheets and downpours.
I was doing pretty good not getting caught in the rain until last Friday ~ I had broken my trusty umbrella and never replaced it.....dumb, I know. Well I came home that night and hit the internet looking for something that wouldn't make the rain as horrible as I believe it is.
I found a few nice ones and wanted to share.
Disclaimer: when it comes to umbrellas, I typically find a direct correlation between how much I pay for it and how long it lasts....usually because the more I pay, the more careful I am to make sure I don't leave it or mishandle it!
