Maybe you should buy several umbrellas. Lost and found boxes are filled with umbrellas.

You know, loading up on several umbrellas at a time is a great idea.

I have been thinking the same thing the last several times it's rained. At least I have a broken umbrella to make do with, though.

I have lots of umbrellas, which I keep here and there (home, office, car), so as to increase the likelihood that I'll have access to one when I need it (without having to, say, read the weather report or understand the first thing about east coast weather). Perhaps I should keep a few at your office, too?

Forget the umbrella. Just be very flamboyant (sp?) and walk down the street singing "Singing in the Rain".

Though in Cambridge and hereabouts were torrential rains and tornado warnings Wednesday -- so singing (out loud) in such maybe like -- 'nuts'?

The problem is, even if you remember to buy an umbrella, you face the problem of remembering to take it with you on days when it might rain. I got around to buying an umbrella once, after years of wishing I'd remembered every time it rained. Never once did I have it with me when I needed it, so I finally got rid of it when I moved once.

I often keep an umbrella in my bag no matter what the weather is. That way I don't even have to pay attention to forecasts. I don't carry umbrellas in the winter.

i agree -- just keep it in your backpack or whatever bag you use to carry books and papers.
