That doesn't happen much. But it happen at least twice this summer. Each crew has four full days and Fridays are half full. So if the day is a full wash out, we expand the work day (crews have both days on the schedule). They do as many as the can and we will usually catch up in about 3 days. Same thing if it rains two days.
We do get calls from the customers, so in the future I'm going to work out a way to contact them. Some of the customers just don't understand. "It rained Monday and Tuesday, but I'm on your Wednesday schedule so why aren't you here"
