Those small retractable umbrellas will always flip over when it is too windy?

If you're buying the retractable umbrellas, get the ones with springs on the arms; this prevents the arms from snapping in the wind. The umbrella will invert in strong wind, but you can just flip it back with nothing broken. These usually have a 'windproof' tag on them and are about 11 inches long (not the super mini 3-section type). I usually buy mine from Winners because they're only about $15 max there. The colour choice varies though.

NorthFace....you'll look like the typical CBC skinny gangster. Throw in some tear-away pants, Nike Shox...BAM, you's a G son! lol Oh, don't forget the skinny gold chain

If you want a golf umbrella....it's obvious you should visit GOLFTOWN

If you want more accurate weather prediction, go get yourself a barometer and read pressure changes.
