When you think of using an umbrella, what type of weather do you imagine?
So why do I see so many people in downtown Boston huddled under their umbrellas as they're rushing to get Somewhere in the middle of a snowstorm?
Really, the umbrella usage is quite rampant here these days. Seriously.
Maybe it's just me...but when I see it snowing outside, I think: Boots? Check. Scarf? Check. Gloves? Check. Hat? Check.
Not, "Damn, better grab the umbrella so I don't get pelted with those light and fluffy snowflakes."
