Todays Rain

Post by delboy » May 2nd, 2018, 1:24 pm

This morning I was out fully dressed in my black PVC and visited a garden centre and my local National Trust property. At both I received compliments on my outfit.

When I arrived at he National Trust property, the lady checking membership cards exclaimed 'Wow what a wonderful Mac and it brought back memories of the 60's for her'. We then had a discussion on the practicalities of PVC and she asked if they were still available today.

Were many others out appropriately dressed today?

Yep! Been wearing my regatta storm break rain suit and green Dunlop’s almost every day! Even wore a pvc poncho over the top a few times! Didn’t wear my waterproofs today so had to buy a yellow pvc rain suit from screwfix !

Certainly wish I had bumped into you in London, Anotherraincoat, in your rainsuit and wellies - would have been nice to have stopped and had a coffee with you over a rainwear chat. You too, Waterproofs!

I was able to enjoy some thunderstorms today in the south-eastern USA. I wore a yellow rain bib and a mid length yellow raincoat I purchased on a vintage clothing website. The rain was torrential with thunder booming overhead almost constantly. The sheer intensity of the rain reduced visibility by a good amount. After the storm passed (about 20 minutes I'd say), the neck area of my shirt was soaked and my face was dripping wet. The rain gear I wore had a nice shiny sheen to it due to all of the rain.
