For when it begins pouring!

In our climate, there's no telling when it's going to rain. The morning could start off clear, blue, and without a cloud in sight, but in mere seconds the sky could begin spouting cats and dogs (and rabbits and hamsters, for when the delubyo's especially strong). What's a girl to do when stepping outside could most likely mean the day's secondand unwantedbath? Below, five tips on working the tricky-yet-totally-en-vogue raincoat. Forget getting drenched; bring on the downpour!
