    I worked today in the rain and my problem is the customers, they always have something to say or just get arrogant and don't listen to a word i say to them about how it should dry as normal. Granted if it rains hard the doors and upvc are going to get some splash back from the dirt on the floor but overall i do not see why they have to moan or refuse anyone. As soon as the sun comes out there quick on the phone to ask where you are in the summer.

    Seems they do not care that we need to make a living all year round.

    I think you have to train your custies about working in the rain. Mine never batter an eye lid.

    Only 2or 3 out of 200 moan at me for working in the rain, last one moaned after receiving my compliments slip that it had rained in the afternoon, her windows were done at 8:30am.
    Doesn't really slow me down just takes a lot of self motivation
