A month or so ago it rained and I realized that my water resistant raincoat was no longer water resistant. It is old so I figured it was time to replace it. Lesson Learned: I should not have procrastinated, I should've bought a new raincoat. It poured in south Charlotte around 7pm on Saturday night. I was out dog walking. I had on the aforementioned raincoat and I got drenched. So, yesterday I went to REI and bought a new raincoat. Given the chance of rain we've had for the past couple of days and all of the rain they're getting south of us, you'd think that I would make certain I have my new raincoat with me. No, not so much. This morning while walking Opus, I had to grab my Carolina Panthers windbreaker which was in the car (thank goodness) and an umbrella. Not so easy to walk a dog and hold an umbrella. Another lesson learned!
