I am beginning to feel like I live in a swamp! I can't speak for the whole state of Texas, but East Texas has been very, very wet! I like to get out and explore my surroundings from time to time, but rainy weather makes it very difficult. I am right handed so that hand holds my cane. If the rain is coming down in biblical proportions I would have to hold an umbrella in my left hand, That is just not happening, at least not without a fall or two!
I have however found a way to cope with this particular conundrum. I always keep a poncho tucked away in my car. and the poncho I use is made by, Frogg Toggs. This poncho keeps me dry no matter how hard it's raining. That is a plus in my book! Most of the time I stay drier than the people using umbrellas, and the great thing is I can move at my snail's pace and it doesn't matter, I still say dry! I love that we can share helpful hints like this.
So with the constant rain we have been getting it hasn't stopped me from getting out and enjoying the world or swamp. But please........rain, rain go away!
What is your helpful hint that makes life easier?
