Woman Was Under The Impression She Owned A Waterproof Jacket
As Angela Morton removed her water logged anorak, she realized that ‘water resistant’ does not mean waterproof.
As she peeled off her ‘rain trousers’, she understood that ‘water repellant’ is equally meaningless.
And as she emptied her sneakers into the sink, she concluded that whatever else ‘hydrophobic’ may mean, it can’t possibly mean waterproof either.
At least not in the context of an Irish Status Yellow Rain Warning.
