    Just seen the weather forecast it's going to be ******* down all week where i am at. I've been spoiled with the dry warm weather we been having in the south east the past 5 / 6 month.

    Got a gut feeling a few my customers will be making a big fuss this week if I start cleaning their windows in the rain's especially the OAPs

    If it's coming straight down with no wind , I go out until I'm soaking wet , if it's horizontal I just stay in . I get the odd moan but there still pay . I've got a couple of houses that willnt except me working in the rain ... Most are ok

    I find it interesting to know because I have seen quite a few window cleaners about where I work and I don't ever see them about working when its raining.

    I do it because I have too, can't afford not to work cos it raining

    What I tend to do when the weather bad is leave the big paying job alone till the weather get better cos I can understand some customers might get funny about it if their are paying big money to have their windows cleaned but I carry cleaning jobs I only charge £10 to £15 in the rain.
