Umbrella Graveyard

It rained all day long in Milwaukee yesterday—so windy that umbrellas turned inside out or were wrenched away. Lots of people, like me, gave up and decided to brave the elements in raincoats alone. Yes, I felt like an idiot walking down the street getting drenched while carrying my highly noticeable and very large tightly furled umbrella. But my bumbershoot, though battered, should be good for a couple more showers. So there’s one good thing. Because others didn’t make it 🙂
