I don't carry umbrellas because they always seem bulky and cumbersome. Problem is, we've had two wet days on campus and I had meetings across campus in the Administration Building on both days.
How do I stay dry and get from the AB back to "civilization (i.e., the CASL building)? I don't. I get wet. Even cutting through Natural Sciences and the UC, I get wet. And the Nat Sci building always smells like a bag of dry dog food.
