I wish all local news were like this local news.


I am a fan of a rugged umbrella.

I like my umbrellas large, sturdy and, occasionally, with a nice handle.

What I do not like in an umbrella are shoulder straps and the possibility of claustrophobia.

On the plus side this umbrella could be used if you wanted to remake the penultimate scene of “2001, A Space Odyssey”.

From the Nubrella website:

With its new aerodynamic oval design with extended coverage wind now flows over and around the canopy thus completely denying the possibility to invert. No more struggling to maintain your umbrella in the proper position. Simply strap on the shoulder support and walk completely hands free even in significant winds. Also with the extended coverage you will be completely protected from wind chill and extreme cold. You will be amazed on how much warmer you will feel while using your nubrella.

With its sleek futuristic oval design, nubrella will be seen as the new “must have” fashion accessory around the world. Nubrella has removed the pole from the middle so now you can be in the best position for maximum coverage. Again, with this new revolutionary sleek design, say goodbye to the “bobbing” effect on the busy sidewalks of metroplitan cities.

Easy to use
Just push the button and pull the handle towards you and nubrella will simply “pop” open. With nubrella’s patent pending “shoulder supports” nubrella simply rests on your shoulders and can be held with one finger. With nubrella’s clear transparent material there is no more need to tilt your umbrella down and quickly back up to see while fighting the elements. Just walk straight away and see where you are walking all of the time.
