I love the long shadows you get this time of year when the sun is so low. I've done at least one load of laundry every day this week and there is very little direct sun on my clothesline. Everything has been getting dry anyway because of the gentle breezes and sweater-weather temperatures. I've heard it might reach 80 degrees sometime over this long holiday Columbus Day weekend. Enjoy it whatever you do. G.P.Schafer Architect photo found here.
