How do you stay dry on rainy days? Anyone use an umbrella?
I call in sick. Keeps me dry all the time! Try it, you'll like it!
I use one during my residential deliveries if its pouring hard
Never use it while doing commercial
An umbrella? Seriously??
Raincoat and baseball hat (that's if I can't get the day off.)
There are multiple routes I cover for where there are umbrellas in the cab. I think its hilarious.
do diad training...over and over--till it stops
If I am in a 500 or 700 I'll go as far up every um 'private access road' I can to limit the time I'm outside and will usually stop complete from the truck. Other than that I just wear the floppy boonie hat to keep the rain off my head and back. If it is torrential downpour I occasionally will make a ghetto DR bag poncho
Soon to be available in brown from Big Babooba Ltd!!!
ONLY $49.95 + $12.47 S&H
Is that the guy who runs NASCAR?
I have an umbrella. If it adds 10 minutes to my day, I'll keep that free $5 and change to stay dry. Of course, I'm a "city driver" as some of you would call it, so between being behind the wheel and inside office buildings, I spend next to no time outside in the rain.
My umbrella is my best friend, next to the hand truck
I just walk between the rain drops. No umbrella necessary.
I enjoy rainy days so that I can put on a "wet uniform" show for the ladies.
Im glad you posted this because I was just thinking about using an umbrella a couple days ago. The only thing I like about the rain is drivers like Big Babooba call out and I get to drive. Here is Florida, my browns will be drenched with sweat, then with rain, then dry, then sweat again. Lets just say my car stinks as I do, after work.
I have the wide brim official uniform fishin' hat for rainy days. And if it's piss pouring, I make the ol' DR bag poncho.
I never cared how wet I got, as long as I had a hat!!
Rain never slows down a good package driver. And isn't there an extra time allowance for rainy days? (sarcastically)

Last Thursday I found out that my jacket was no longer water proof. It rained ALL DAY, it didn't slow down for even a minute. I tried staying between the rain drops all day long, but by 2:30 I was completely soaked. It was a miserable day.
I'm going to get some waterproofing spray and spray my coat with it.
WAIT your jacket was waterproof at one point?
