Think I've learned a lesson went out in those winds on Monday. Ended up pulling muscles in my arm and stomach trying to fight those gusts 👎

Admittedly,@ one stage,i pulled a shoulder/back muscle...Still,work through the pain barrier.That assists with healing,as does stretching!😉.

I'll work through most pain or rub some Oriental balm in before bed...That works wonders.

Those were the days. 

Holding on to a sill with 1 hand while tradding with the other...

The good old days. 😂Sure don’t miss those. I’ve worked in some stupid weather over the years. Just glad I’m now in a position were I don’t have to.

I do Trad at the moment so anything above 50 mph I'll ditch the high stuff and just do some bottom flats. Don't fancy falling off a ladder for £10 per hour

Too right, far too dangerous.

 

How come you're only on £10 an hour? Are you working for a company up there?

Already rescheduled todays work, not worth risking my equipment, let alone the safety factor, and I always think we are one poor job on the customers windows from losing that customer. Stay safe out there guys.

I was just getting ready to head out as it was a lovely morning but it's now snowing, think I'll leave it for a few hours 😂😂

Yeah that's my thinking.  Decided to take the day off last night, I would have gone out today but after what happened yesterday my fear was that when I send out those texts 'your windows are due for cleaning, I'll be there tomorrow...' there is that risk the customers will think 'what's the point' more than if it was just a normal rainy day as the weather will be on their minds due to it being all over the news.

 

Got to just chance it tomorrow though, can't put off the work forever.  Thursday is looking really bad on the met forecast, torrential rain sweeping the whole country.

I'll be off till Thursday and I have a big PW job on Friday when the temp is up to 10 degrees. Sometimes its not worth the bother, that's when its good not having a full round. I can do mine in 7 days now.

Customers don't want you out in this weather and sometimes blame themselves for us coming out. I heard this over the weekend. A relatively new windy was telling his customer, "I see you have got the back room all done up with different wallpaper" The customer was quite alarmed that he was observing all their rooms and quickly cancelled him on the next visit, that's why I like the wfp. 😉
