Tut, tut, it looks like rain

lots of umbrellas jumbled together
I have never seen so many different umbrella styles before. I ended up with a very small black umbrella with red polka dots. I will never ever get it to collapse to its tiny size again.

Today, I bought an umbrella.

I can’t even believe I just said that. It is JUNE. My mind cannot comprehend the fact that there are places where it rains — frequently — in the middle of summer. But this past week, I got caught in a torrential downpour. It was like a good Arizona monsoon, except much longer. Now I understand the storm grates all over the city!
