To me, rainstorms in San Francisco are synonymous with bright umbrellas. While I have a small collection of 1940s parasols that are often too fragile to use, this umbrella can withstand the harshest windstorm or downpour. I am glad it has survived nearly 60 years of use so I can tote it around with me during blustery Fall weather.
As much as I love the rain, I am hoping for blue skies over the weekend. Annalise and I will embark on a thrifting adventure in Northern California early Saturday morning. We are on the hunt for warm coats and dresses for the new season at some of our favorite thrifting havens. And perhaps I will find a pair of rain boots for my closet. It looks like it is going to be a dreary Autumn here in the Bay Area.
