    Working in seattle you work in more rain than sun. Two piece rain gear is a must. If you just wear a jacket your legs get soaked. A 10x10 pop up tent works well for compressor changeouts in the rain as long as its not windy.
    Experience
    Is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

    A positive attidude will not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worthwhile.

    No when there is lightning. We usually schedule our work around the rain though so its rare that you get rained on that many days of the year.

    I do not work in the rain. I got lit up pretty good by a shorted drain heat tape. Last rainy roof I was on 20 yrs ago. Maybe if I had someone with me to perform CPR.

    Comort stuff will wait, but the necessary things like coolers and freezers gotta get done. Can't "Eat Fresh" if it isn't fresh.. Luckily I work for good people, and pretty much make my own decisions. Always work safe though.

    I just add layers. I am looking for a long raincoat have not found any I'm interested in so far. We don't work in lightning when it's on top of us. We use tents sometimes that does not go well. Had to cut fabric loose and let it fly a couple times.

    Not a big deal. I just tied it all together and pulled it up the side of the building in one pull. Don't you guys do that?
