It seems a couple of my neighbors feel sorry for me when I walk to the bus stop and its raining. I have a great rain cover for my daughter's stroller that keeps her completely dry and I have umbrellas for the boys. If its pouring or storming we don't walk. Just a slow rain or shower and we do. My boys love to walk in the rain and they're bone dry when they get on the bus. Is it really that big of a deal?
