Are umbrellas useless in Halifax? We asked Haligonians

Monday, January 6th 2020, 6:00 pm - Our East Coast reporter, Nathan Coleman, took to Twitter to see how people in Halifax REALLY feel about the allegedly useful accessories.

When you're a videographer trying to tell a rain story, puddles are good, rain jackets will work but the ultimate prize is the pedestrian wielding an umbrella.

In Halifax, they're few and far between.

After searching and not finding, with his camera getting ever wetter one rainy night downtown, The Weather Network's Atlantic Canada reporter, Nathan Coleman, took his search to Twitter, and stumbled on some very unequivocal local knowledge as the responses poured in.

It just goes to show that no matter the weather in a particular part of Canada, the people who live there will adapt, and with a sense of humour as well.

Watch the video above for the full story.
