    Thats why I pay the sunshine tax and live in Southern California. Once it drops below about 50 I try not to do anything outside unless I am getting paid to.

    This is going back a few decades, but here goes.

    I hated working on a car on a hydraulic lift on those days when the road had been covered in snow and slush. 10lb icebergs would drop off the undercarriage at the least opportune times and there was a constant drip of dirty, salty mush coming off the chassis. Just plain nasty work.

    When it's below zero it can be interesting doing anything with metal tools when you aren't able to wear gloves. It can be as painful to pick up a cold tool as a hot one.

    Not winter jobs per say but I really hate working on tv's when its raining.. Reason being is that I have to make atleast 2 trips out to the vehicle.. One for my backpack with my tools and laptop with service manuals in case I need to test voltages and then parts for the tv and if I need to carry a portable folding table thats a 3rd.
