In praise of the washing line

Washing line This might be the last day for drying clothes outside this year.

After a few glorious days that seemed to have been borrowed from early summer, the weather has turned grey and cold. There has just about been an overnight frost some nights, though it's melted before I got up. Today it was grey and drizzly.

Interestingly, my washing line would be prohibited in many places in the US, at least according to this article, but it seems Americans are fighting back.

Why anyone would have a problem with a washing line, I don't know. Rotting cars, rolls of old carpet and other assorted junk dumped in a garden, fair enough, but clean washing blowing in the wind on a sunny day?
