Sorry for hijacking the topic, but I must respond to the bumbershoot. Brian Bray a member here mentioned that a few weeks ago. A very funny name indeed.
Here in the Seattle area, we call it a Bumbershoot. We even have a festival named for it.
I'm from the Seattle area also, but the term Bumpershot is actually of British origin, must be our proximity to British Columbia, only a short ferry ride away from my house.
