Checking the hourly weather forecast means I have been able to contentedly get a load of washing done and out on the line as soon as the fierce precipitations and the heavy clouds passed. I even shoved a pile of towels into the washing machine, they did not get pegged out onto the line till about 5pm. In-between I took some of the now dry stuff indoors. What was left was a bit damp. I’ve been glancing at the rotating washing line turn and turn in the light wind and keeping an eye on the skies…just in case.
An hour and a half later,just as we sat down to our evening meal, a horrible heavy yellow cloud clung to the skies overhead and we saw spots of rain on the window. Hubs and I dashed out to rescue the laundry. The tea towels were damp and the heavier towels were in need of a bit more time to blow in the wind. Just to be on the safe side, we unpegged everything. Thirty minutes later,the skies were inviting, clear and sunny. As I write, (20.04) the towels are back on the washing line, getting a good blowing from the wind. We can’t leave the towels out overnight as rain is forecast. They’ll be cold when we do bring them in but, hopefully, they will be a lot less wet and it will be easier to finish drying them.
What fun one do have in the pursuit of natural drying (in the style of a certain Mr S Pepys). 😉
