I guess I have a Love/Hate relationship with my umbrellas. I love them when they work and I hate that I keep losing them! Which I seem to keep doing!
Native Western Washington folks are famous for never using/needing umbrellas- at least that’s what I keep hearing. I was born in Western Washington but raised in Eastern Washington and this seems to have tainted me on the Umbrella rule. With a very rainy winter and spring I have been in constant need of umbrellas and there begins the latest saga of my umbrellas.
I want them, I need them and I get a little panicky if I can’t locate one. So my go-to rule is to always have at least two umbrellas available and preferably I have one at home, one at the office and one in each car. More is better is my mantra!
Well, Mr. Blogger knows all this and bought me a fancy umbrella for Christmas which I put to use right away. This umbrella operated upside down so that as you got out of the car it opened out and avoided hitting the car door completely. When closing up it captured remaining water inside so I didn’t pour water all over the floor at my destination.
It took its rightful place in my car and served me well in this highly regarded umbrella spot. Sadly, it took me just one month to lose that gem of an umbrella while traveling and I really miss that fancy contraption!

Weather: What a blustery day today! Wind and rain made for a very entertaining day to watch. From the inside there is no umbrella needed!
