Yes, like many parts of the US, the weather has gotten cooler here in St. Louis, MO. It dropped into the 40’s last night and the cool weather looks like it will continue.
The last few days the wind has been whipping and gum balls and black walnut pods have been falling from the sky like hail. I try and stay out of the way.
I love this time of year.
The humidity is low, and yesterday I got two loads of laundry washed and out on the line. It is early and I have another load in the wash ready to go out as soon as there is enough light to see. It has been several weeks since the humidity has been low enough to dry clothes on the line in one day.
I worry about how I will dry my clothes indoors once the weather has gotten too cold to do it outside. When my dryer died earlier this year I made a conscious decision not to buy another. Folks around the world on these blogs told me they have always done without, so I’m trusting that I will be able to as well. I talk the green talk, and walking the green walk is always easier in the summer. Now comes the time of truth. Will I be able to handle a winter without a clothes dryer?
