Waiting for rain

Postby Eremophila » Fri 31 Jul, 2020 8:39 am

A recently purchased rain jacket has shown signs that it may not be fit for purpose, ie. not waterproof. On a day of light rain the water wasn't beading as it should, and the large cargo pockets (and their contents) were damp inside.

So I'm waiting for a day of decent rain to give it a better test run. It's July in Warrnambool..... I've been waiting over a week. Today is lovely & sunny.

If this keeps up I'll have to go and sit under the garden sprinkler. :roll:

...or the next time you have a shower, put the jacket on. :D
Cold water obviously...it's been done before. :wink:
Mountain views are good for my soul...& getting to them is good for my waistline !
