I can put up with working in the dark, I can put up working with mosquitoes and flies, I can put up with working in the cold, I CANNOT stand working in the rain!
I did exactly what you had to do today. I cleaned a paddock during a thunder and rain storm and all my clothes were literally soaked. I wouldn't even think of working with my horse during heavy rain like this. And it is going to be showers all through the end of the month and possibly more, GREAT. If there is a weather god, I wish to assassinate him.
