Here's the issue: We have a likelihood of thunderstorms today. Strong thunderstorms, the kind that, if they actually occur, will totally soak anything outside within seconds. Including laundry. If laundry gets caught in one of these storms, it will get wetter than when it was actually hung on the line.
But will the thunderstorms happen this morning? Or this afternoon? Late enough so I can hang the stuff and it will get dry--or at least mostly dry--before the storm comes? Or will I hang it out, it will get mostly dry, and then I won't be able to get it off the line before the storms hit and so it will all get soaked and have to be machine dried anyway? Do I just save myself the stress and put it right in the dryer, thereby possibly wasting the propane if we don't actually get ANY rain today, which is a possibility?
You see the problems I have. It's a pressure cooker of a situation, really.
However, the sun is currently out and the washing machine just stopped. I will take that as a sign and go hang the clothes out. I'm all about living dangerously.
