"I'm saving the earth...and my gas bill. What are you doing?"

Yes, that is snow on the ground and yes, that is our laundry hanging out. It is 42 degrees, the snow is deceptive, and the sun is shining. It takes a bit longer to dry than on 75 degree days, but it still gets dry, given 6 hours of sunlight. It is a little chilly while hanging it but totally worth it for the "green" benefits, both earthly and monetarily.

I am astounded at all the people who had no idea one could hang their laundry to dry in the winter. My first thought is, "how do you think they dried laundry in the winter before dryers?"
People crack me up.
