    The rain wouldn't stop and I wanted to go, :p So ! outside the box thinking
    was required. Now I can load with some protection from Mother Nature. :yesss:

    On a couple jobs we used one of those pop up canopys, I say couple because wind twisted it up like a pretzel, trying to make money in rain is a little tricky especially with carpet.

    You had to be soaked by the time you assembled that

    Assembled from the inside:yesss: ( the dry side ) then, an empty trash can,
    held over my head, for getting to and from the truck. The tubes
    were literally stacked by the door, just waiting for a secondary use, before meeting there fate in the dumpster. I only got wet from droplets dripping between the tubes. :D

    Ain't I,.......... The most interesting :blink: guy on this Forum.......Stay Dry My Friends! :p

    well here in se Pa we have had record rainfall for the month of June AND July. Couple days ago Philly had a record 1 day total of 8" if I remember correctly.Usually this time of year I am mowing my grass once every 2 weeks ...been doing every 5-6 days right now and if I go longer i feel like I should bail it....startin to piss me off...:mad: but all the crops are growin well so I guess thats a good thing..

    as far as Mikes roof sometimes when I get rained on and have to work out of the back of my van I will open the doors in the back and throw a sheet of uly over top of the doors and the roof so at least i dont have to crawl in my van to keep from gettin wet....makes a nice roof as long its tilted the right way...

    It rained so hard here Saturday that I have already pulled wet carpet out of 4 basements. One was almost 200yds. That one will need replacing, the others should be salvageable.

    I think I’m getting a 4x8 sheet of FRP to strap to top. My side door closes with a ramp connected. The barn doors rain gets in easy. Though I have the marine grade plywood top layer, when it’s wet inside and closed, humid during day, drying is not quick.

    Mike I guess I'm wondering why you are posting on a thread that was in 2013 that is 5 years old?

    Truth? I felt like it. Reminded me of Mikes post of creating a rain barrier, wasn’t worth posting a new topic, just a crumb.
