Well, there's always the classic approach of simply avoiding the rain altogether by staying indoors or under cover. But let's face it, that's no fun at all. So, what helps better against rain?

But for the rest of us non-aquatic creatures, a trusty umbrella or raincoat is the best defense against those pesky raindrops. Just be careful not to accidentally poke someone in the eye with one of those sharp umbrella tips - unless, of course, that's your idea of a good time.
