How To Survive The Rain Without An Umbrella

Category: How ToEyeliah @ 7:56 pm

I am not an umbrella carrier, the fact that I lost the only one I had is besides the point….. so this is what I wear to keep as dry as I can on days that pour in my fair city of Vancouver.

Start with a staple waterproof or water resistant coat, look for one with a high collar or hood so you can bypass on a scarf.  It’s also important for those who wear glasses to don a wide brimmed hat to stop pesky raindrops from landing on specs.  Over my pants a skirt and high socks to soak up some of that rain and rubber shoes to keep toes dry.  Unfortunately these shoes gave me a few wicked blisters today, so I should toss them out straight away.

This close up on my jacket may give a better idea of just how wet it was out!

Do you go without an umbrella on rainy days?

    *gasp* Go without a umbrella??? NEVER!!!!!!!! Okay, the few times I have, thankfully, the rain wasn’t bad. Otherwise, I am paranoid about the weather here in the Midwest. The weather turns on a dime here. It can be sunny with clouds and then BAM! RAIN. I have a healthy paranoia with weather. I hate being wet. Revision, I hate being wet AND cold.

    - apparently it rains quite a bit in PV during the night so I might have to carry a “brolly” with me – never did in Cabo !!
