Using an Umbrella, Portland Style

I’ve said many times that one of the rules to visiting Portland, or living in the Pacific Northwest, is that locals never use umbrellas. Apparently, I was wrong. Turns out we do use them. Just not in the conventional manner. Truth is, I wonder if this guy even knows how to work the thing. But at least he owns one, which is more than I can say for myself.

Ahh, Portland. How I love you. And how I miss your rainy season…

  1. That is too funny, Mark! Hilarious photo!

    And it’s so ironic you posted this. I just got caught in a HUGE rain storm while walking home from the grocery store because I had NO umbrella! I was literally soaked through when I got home. I honestly didn’t care though, I love rain!

  2. The first thing that popped into my mind upon seeing this was that photo from Vietnam where there is one or two guys riding in a truck cab that is powered by a water buffalo.
