One good thing about gale-force winds.... forces you to change your method of hanging out the clothes.  Every time I pinned a piece to the clothesline, it went flying off into the garden fence.  I thought, "Hey, why not throw the wash against the fence then?"  It worked beautifully.  I did pin it on as well, but honestly, the wind is so strong, it would stay put without the clothes pins.

We're expecting thunderstorms and rain later on this afternoon.  If the force of the east wind has anything to do with the amount of rain coming, we'll be up to our ankles in water.  We aren't supposed to get lots of rain, but any little bit will be welcomed.  At the moment, our electricity is out and we are using generator power.  Too bad we don't have a windmill.


  1. That is some crazy wind! I hope you get power soon and the rain is of the good soaking sort.

  2. OK...that is something else. Hope that electricity comes on soon and that you do get a little rain!

  3. So Funny..Fabulous!!! Hugs May x x x

  4. Looks like your laundry is trying to get out of Dodge. Here are wishes for your power to be restored. Have a good day.

  5. You're so smart, Jody! Great idea!
    I hope the power comes back soon!

  6. Wow! It's been windy like crazy here all week too. I'm ready for it to be over! I love the look of your laundry on the fence LOL!

  7. I guess you would have a far more creative reason why your socks are missing their mates! :)

    Bet your clothes dried in no time!

    Enjoy that fresh clean smell on your clothes. Alas, our Southern air puts yucky smells on the clothes, so hanging outside is not the fragrant experience I enjoyed in the Midwest.
    Happy Spring!


  8. Brilliant! Farm wife ingenuity and energy. You make me want to go hang clothes here, where the spring wind is also blowing, but not so fiercely.

  9. Whoa! what a wind! Good thing you put it to work..
    Have a great weekend
