Last week, Belgium and the Netherlands were properly rained out with a month’s worth of precipitation in two days. Floods, emergency evacuations and canceled train trips were duly divided among all.

Meanwhile, Denmark has snow.

Despite their collapsed guttural language, we still feel jealous about the Danes every now and then.

To combat this sunshineless insanity [what? envious of the Danes!?], let’s look at the positive side of rain—that is, umbrellas.

Sure, you could use them in the stuffy Danish snow, but then you’d look ridiculous. Umbrellas are meant for misery, e.g. Benelux in November.¬†They make everything better. Check it out:

So, Denmark, enjoy the snow.
We’ll take the umbrellas until December.
