Instead of checking the weather forecast to see if it’s going to rain, all I need to do is to look out my back window. My next-door neighbors occasionally put their clothes on a line outside. But they seem to do it only when it’s either raining or when it’s going to rain. It also seems that after the rain starts, the clothes do not get gathered up: they just leave it there.
I still haven’t figured this out, maybe it’s just a coincidence that it’s raining every time they dry their clothes, and maybe they just leave it in the rain because they figure after the rain stops, the clothes can dry again.
I can’t think of anything better than sleeping on bed sheets with the smell of Toronto’s polluted rain.
