^^^ This. Being a solo op, I know that if I'm injured where I cannot work for some period of time, I'm done.
In 18 years, I've not missed a day of work because of illness or injury. Has the streak run its course?
Yes, weather is an issue, but there is always work of some kind. Schedules get interrupted, but I just keep working when I can. Last Spring, the work started three weeks later than in 2012. I never made up that lost work, despite having a better-than-average July and August. Having a weather-dependent service, one has to know the pitfalls.
