    It has not stopped raining here in So Cal for the past six days. Starting Monday, we've been blessed with a continual downpour of water. Thunderstorms, lightining, hail and tornado like winds. Working in these conditions unseen here for a long time. Made me apppreciate what some drivers go through. I'm talking about areas where they experience true seasonal changes, like the NW and NE parts of the USA.

    Sometimes we here in the west, post comments on how warm it was in DEC. while everyone is going through tough climate delivering situations. I don't see how many of you can make deliveries, while still staying safe in harsh rain and snow.

    I was thinking the same thing on Friday.

    There are not many January days that I work the whole day without a pair of gloves on. It was 37, no wind and occasional rain. Almost a perfect January work day.

    Yes when all your checks get wet, and your delivery notices. But I mostly hate when the snow sticks in your step well. And turns to solid ice.
