Question Poll of the Day-7/8

When it is raining, do you usually use an umbrella, or just make a run for it?

I only use the umbrella if it is pouring out. If the rain is steady but not too crazy, I'll just use a hat.

Run like heck. Usually can't find the umbrella when I need it.

I hate running, so I mostly just put my hood up and suffer through it. I can't stand umbrella's because I have this belief they'll blow inside out and make me stand there in the rain looking like an idiot.... yup I'm weird lol

Rarely use an umbrella......usually only at Disney parks when I am walking slow and strolling around.
35 years in WA state.......we don't use umbrellas.

I hate umbrellas, too. I don't know why but I'd rather get wet. My kids are the same, altho it does bother me to see them go to the bus stop with just a hoody in the rain.

Has anyone else seen the Invisible Air Umbrella that's out now? Might be worth a try, just because it's kind of a cool gadget.

I sometimes use an umbrella, but if it is only sprinkling or I have a short distance, I usually just run it.

QOTD-7/8-Spin Off Question

Do you use a raincoat?

I have only used a raincoat once in my life.

Not a raincoat, but a poncho, and a Disney one at that.
