    We have a dry week forecasted, so touch wood. But the last three weeks here have been terrible, and have been a little behind each week.

    The upside to when it rains alot I tend to get more enquires for gutter clearing (blocked & overflowing gutters) also pressure washing for slippery hard surfaces. That's why to be honest I don't have a large window cleaning round as can offer a wide range of services that can be done when raining. High winds I find more of a problem for me....

    I agree, I am about 2 weeks behind now and im starting to get fed up with the rain, since I only work on the weekends. I have the christmas week off so going to work the 3 days that I can and hopefully catch up.

    Rain is probably the worst aspect of this job. I seem to be studying the forecast and have on the odd occasion cancelled jobs when heavy all day rain has been forecast. This has often turned out to be a bad mistake as forecasts seem to change quite dramatically!. I am about two weeks behind, but no change there....I have been behind all year. Most of my monthly customers seem to get done every six weeks!

    That's why I switched from 4 to 6 weeks. Gives you a bit of grace.
