I swear it has been raining in Seattle for over a week straight. I have always been one to like the gloomy, stormy fall days, but it's just so gray. For being perhaps the rainiest state in the country, no one around here carries an umbrella, myself included. I don't even know if I own one. Why is that? It would be nice if we could see some beautiful umbrellas out there to break up the dismal backdrop. Maybe I should invest in a pretty one like these.
