    Rainy days are the days you do maintenance on equipment, market your services, and shop around for materials and the best prices in your area, also catch up on all paper and office work...very important

    Both my services (window cleaning and lawn care) are so weather dependent but I don't mind cutting lawn when its wet, even raining lightly.

    Sometimes I just take a "mental break day"...you know, take the kid to preschool, go out for lunch with the wife, watch a little Dr. Phil :laugh:

    Yes, I like to go shopping on rainy days, make deposits, stuff like that.
    Giving a few estimates is usually ok, too.

    And most of all: :sleeping:

    I will do some service work on the machines, catch up on some paper work, maybe get out and ride some in search of new accounts. And I usually kick back and catch some extra rest so Im ready to roll when the sun does come out so I can get back on schedule

    Unless it is really heavy --we cut grass.
    I ran 4 10's so if there was a wash out we still picked up and finished the week, just maybe a 1/2 day behind.
