    Its going to be raining for the next 4 days at least. On and off but pretty much non stop until later in the afternoon. I seriously can't afford to stay at home considering I'm already bit behind with work.

    any tips working in the rain would be great.

    I'm thinking using scourer pads to put underneath my ladder to stop it from slipping

    When I switched to wfp I told all my customers that using the new system will be fine in any conditions, so no problems.
    I think its ok if its light rain when doing trad, but wouldn't do it in normal or heavy rain I.m.o

    She gets about the woman lol. She's from fiverr.

    Anyways I got too complaints about working in the rain yesterday. Not from the workmanship. Just they thought it was pointless. Quick education and all is fine.

    As you're trad I would just take extra cloths and just be smiley. I would invest in a good rubber mat maybe? I ain't trad so I don't know on working in the rain as I never did that really.

    daveyboy may give you some pointers. Be handy if you can zero detail as well.

    Mus admit I do feel a bit of a coont cleaning windows in the rain. Yes do get the odd one moan but not that many to be fair. I try to avoI'd the issue where possible by trying to do those that I know will be out when it rains but you can only do that to a certain extent
