Need a New Job!!

I need to find another job. I am a concrete contractor by dry-weather day. I am looking for somthing that can only be done in wet weather. That way I can pay the bills no matter if it rains or shines. Any suggestions?

It's hard to do dirt work or get concrete to dry in the rain.

Definately not much you can do with a pile of mud. Besides tear up equipment and get dirty.

Nut then they would want me to work when it was dry too. I can't do concrete work in the rain. I need smething I can do in the rain that I can't when it's dry. Kind of like a snow plow in the snow.
