Forgetting Your Umbrella

Sometimes, the weather app says:

โ€œToday will be sunny. No clouds.โ€ย 

This morning, Hanna didnโ€™t bring an umbrella. Hanna walked to work and it was sunny. While she worked, she saw clouds. She finished work in the afternoon.ย 

โ€œThe clouds look very dark,โ€ Hanna thought.ย ย 

Hanna walked for 20minutes to go home.ย 

โ€œPlease donโ€™t rain,โ€ she said quietly.

The rain started. It was very heavy. Hanna went into a kimbap snack bar to wait.ย 

After 15 minutes, it was still raining.ย 

โ€œYou can take my umbrella, teacher.โ€

โ€œThank you very much, sirโ€

Hanna walked to the shop and bought an umbrella.

The next day, she returned the shop ownerโ€™s umbrella.ย 


Does it rain a lot in your country?

Do you take an umbrella every day?
