Umbrella no match for wind & rain

YouTube download / GlobalLeaks video / A man with an umbrella gets hit by a powerful wind gust, causing him problems. The man and the driver quickly run for cover, but they probably should have stayed in the vehicle.

Often, we think of an umbrella as a temporary haven to shield us from the elements in getting from point A to to point B, at least for a short distance, as was the expectation of the man and the driver in the video above. But such expectation proved to be foolhardy. , condidering the obvious strength of the weather elelenents as the umbrella folded up like an accordian as soon as it was opened by the gentleman.
