Carbrella...

The skies opened up this morning in a heavy, cold rain. As you might expect, the first couple of storms of the season always throw people off...the driver above is no exception.

We were making our way to work, and we noticed this car in front of us driving with the door slightly ajar and with an umbrella sticking out. No, not a parked car...a moving car.

Either the car door wouldn't shut, and the driver decided to drive with an umbrella for protection...or the umbrella wouldn't shut and the driver was determined to hang on tight.

Either way...this person is an idiot.

Of course, I looked like an idiot scrambling to find my camera in my bag...praying that the light wouldn't change...cursing at the light for changing too soon...cursing that I couldn't grab an in-focus shot.

I suppose the rain affects us all in different ways :)

I actually surprised that person didn't get stopped by the cops or something. Or do cops not intervene unless someone does something really dumb?

Maybe she was wearing a wacky costume, and got a pass :)

More likely, she just never passed a cop. On rainy days in particular, they are off tending to more important things.

Well hopefully the rain won't follow you down to L.A. tonight! So far it's only 30% showers...
