After two winter ‘storms’ in New York and back by popular demand – I present the 2008/2009 Winter Weather Etiquette lesson from Bogopolis.com.
Lesson #2: Never break lesson number one.
I don’t think umbrellas should be used in snowy weather. I thinks it’s an abomination and extreme misuse of the umbrella apparatus when it is used in snowy weather. I have made my point several times here on Bogopolis and I don’t need to reiterate my points but I still must say that I don’t understand the use of umbrellas in regards to snowy weather.
I get that people don’t like snow getting on their faces or getting slightly wet but isn’t that the point of snow?
Snow is not rain – there is no need to treat it the same.
Enjoy the weather but remember the appropriate attire.
