The great Bruce Lee...

...once said  "Empty your mind. Be formless. Shapeless like water. When you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.  You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.".
While you are taking that in, check out these Gucci wellies from Saks.
When the rain falls on your head, become the rain!

Similarly, Yamamoto Tsunetomo wrote in Hagakure - The Book of the Samurai

"There is something to be learned from a rainstorm.
When meeting with a sudden shower,
you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road.
By doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses,
you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning,
you will not be perplexed
though you still get the same soaking.
This understanding extends to all things."
