My new umbrella cost more than your average umbrella and was worth every penny I paid for it. It has wind-release vents and can resist up to 55 mile per hour winds! It folds up and can fit into a handbag. It has a life time warranty. Tried and true, two can walk comfortably under it and shoulders stay dry. It is a must-have for Seattle.
My new umbrella is huge! People see me coming and clear a path.
Though my new umbrella would be in shreds if exposed to Sandy, it does resist the winds of downtown Seattle! I’ll never have to play the fool again by having a gust of wind turn my umbrella inside out. No more broken umbrella ribs rendered forever useless.
My new umbrella keeps me dry. I am now free of my heavy hooded rain coat and will only wear it when I feel like it.
Yesterday, people at the bus shelter huddled avoiding sheets of rain. They did not budge when I stood nearby. My umbrella, they figured, was shelter enough.
My new umbrella weighs a ton! I’ll never accidentally leave it behind, even if the sun breaks through clouds, for I would miss its weight instantly!
