Spring may be here, but that’s no guarantee that the weather will be warm – in fact, spring is known for its rain showers since they bring May flowers, right? It’s all part of the natural cycle of life, so be prepared for nature’s worst with some waterproof wellies in a fresh forest green or an army-colored rain coat.
