Every once in a while, it's nice to have a rainy day. Cools it off a little bit; washes away the pollen clogging your lungs. The only problem is when you're walking to work in a city filled with millions of other people crowding the streets, umbrellas can become quite dangerous. It's a bit like bumper cars, only with tiny metal points sticking out precariously close to your eyeballs. I would recommend a poncho and some really cute galoshes instead, but it really won't help, seeing as how the other 5.9 million people are still carrying ninja throwing stars over their heads for minimal wetness protection, so you might as well carry one too, so you can deflect the attacks. Stay dry, kids.
