Yesterday morning we took Oscar to the vet. I had a load of dirty clothes in the washer that I had put in on Wednesday thinking I’d have time to get it on the line and dry before the rain started but realized I didn’t have that much time so I didn’t wash it. Yesterday was supposed to be sunny, though windy – perfect day for hanging out laundry so I started the washer before we left to take Oscar to the vet.
When we got in the car to leave the vet, I checked my phone for messages and had this from a neighbor.
My first thought was . . oh, no! I had clothes in the washer. I knew I had a few pairs of jeans, some of Vince’s yard working clothes, Oscar’s sheet from the crate . . that’s all I could remember.
I got home and checked the clothes and they looked fine so I guess the washer ran before the city started flushing the lines. I wish they would let us know before they do that!
Later in the day, Vince said “Grab your camera and come see the water!” They were apparently still doing some flushing but by the time I got out there, the water coming out of the hydrant was clear.
But, look at the water that first came out of that line!
I might have had a hard time drinking that water. It was rusty colored for sure.
It was a good day to get the clothes washed and on the line early!
Love having a clothesline and really wishing we had our own well . . but that’s not going to happen here.
