I've seen many of those here too - but as you say, many of us have a lot of
space. Since we have a "side yard" in the back that makes it easy for the
retractable to attach directly to the fence, that type seemed very useful to
me. Not to mention that when we moved to this house 5 years ago I think our
homeowners association covenants forbad clotheslines, so we "snuck" one in.
In the meantime, Colorado's "green law" has overturned those kind of
restrictions by HOAs (at least if the clothesline is retractable). I will
admit that once pulled out, our "retractable" clotheslines stays out most of
the time though <heehee>.

I found it interesting that the clothesline website has a snowplow-proof
mailbox for sale <g>.

Maybe for some people, but I'm allergic to everything OUTside.

Same here! I've finally gotten my wife out of the habit of hanging our sheets outside. "Oh, but they smell so good", she says. "Yes, then don't complain when I snore all night because of the allergies you brought in with them", I reply.

She now only hangs out HER pillowcase.

I wish I had that as an option. I despise mowing around the blasted posts!

I liked this article in the NY Time today:

The thing that made me suddenly appreciate Colorado though was the paragraph
where they say it takes the sun 5 hours to do what the clothes dryer can do
in 45. Here in Colorado, with our bright sun and low humidity, I'm often
bringing in some of the thinner clothes that I hung up first and are already
dry by the time I finish hanging the rest of the clothing! It rarely takes
more than 45 minutes to dry anything other than jeans here.

Who hangs out their laundry to dry rather than using a clothes dryer when
possible? I do as much as I can, and even recently got one of these for the
bathroom:

Laundry Maid. Pulley clothes airers, supplied with the personal touch, from a family company.

Joe laughed when I bought it. Said his Mum had one hangling in the lounge
(living room) in their house in Dundee when he was growing up. Since ours
is in the bathroom, hanging over the bath tub itself he doesn't object. On
days when it's not loaded up with clothing (which will be most of the
summer!), it just acts as a spot for hanging plants <heehee>

I miss CO.

It's very humid here. And taxes are too high.

I don't hang laundry anymore for a few reasons:

a) I live in NY where it's humid
b) We have lots of wind and the clothes get twirley birds from the maple trees, cotton seed from the cottonwoods, and tree pollen from everything else
c) insects
d) alllergies (one thing that stinks as I have to turn the AC on a lot of nights because if I leave the windows open I'll wake up covered in tree pollen and have an allergy attack).
3) I don't wear clothes (this one is a joke. No nudism here. Except for the dog who walks around nekked).

Gimme that dry air, I say!

haha
