How many hang their clothes out the old fashioned way when weather permits? I just had a new one put up, the other rope had to be about 10 years old. I basically hang my clothes out from April until October/November depending on weather and it sure save on my electric bill. I know there are housing neighborhood, they are called "associations" here they have all kinds of restrictions such as no clotheslines, no things in the yard, lawns all have to be cut the same day and look the same, I could not imagine it. They could NEVER have chickens. But a clothesline? I find it kind of un-american not to be able to have one.
