There are so many different colors of umbrellas out there today. They do come in handy except for on a windy day. I had often heard about umbrellas turning inside out but had never experienced it myself until a couple years ago. The rain was pouring down and the harder it came down the stronger the wind became. I used to walk a lot during the summer months. By the time I got home after that walk I was drenched from head to toe. The umbrella was a total loss.
