How Cold Is Too Cold?

I am completely infatuated with my clothes line.  Seriously. 

I love the entire process of hanging clothes outside to dry.  Hauling the basket of wet clothes out.  Shaking out each piece and pinning it to the line.  It's all a very peaceful routine for me. 

Spare me your talk of bugs, pollen, or how it takes too much time.  Say what you will.  Heard it.  Doesn't change my mind. 
I also don't care if my neighbors find it tacky.  Unless they want to start helping cover our electric bills, I am not particularly interested in their opinion on the matter.

In fact, only one thing can affect my affection for using my clothesline. 

The weather.

Obviously I don't use it when the weather is particularly wet.  However, another dilemma has recent had me mentally debating the use of the clothes line. 

How cold is too cold to hang clothes out to dry? 

At this point, I have been putting clothes out if the temperature is 50 degrees Fahrenheit or above.  But I'm wondering if I could go colder on sunny days.  Especially if there is a little breeze going to help the process along. 


  1. LOVE IT!!!! I wish I could sit in your backyard with a cup of coffee and good conversation while admiring your clothesline. Good for you for doing what brings you peace regardless of what people say!!! :)

  2. Hi there! I have ventured over from the hop. I'm enjoying this little peak into your world! Just lovely! XOXO, Mandi @ All My Happy Endings
