    Been wondering the same, but for hot summer sunny days. I don't work in the rain.

    You can use some old big plastics, if you are having in home. As this will help you to keep your work area dry and would definitely be increasing the efficiency of your work. Thus, one must be looking forward to gain the best options for your need accordingly.

    I don't work in the rain either and I do some commercial work. I don't know about other places but here rain is usually accompanied by lightening. Lightning tends to hit condensers. I don't need to be part of a lightning rod. Add to that opening a refrigeration system to moisture and 240V or higher + water just don't mix. So I find other stuff I can do to be productive.

    I do commercial and basically I move very fast and try not to get electrocuted lol

    I do wish sometimes if my employer would ask if I'd rather take the day off instead of being sent to do PMs in the rain.
