We've been in Australia for 6 months now. We've gone six months without a dryer during the wet season. I should be deemed superwomen. Actually it hasn't been so bad. It just takes a bit longer to hang up all our laundry, and be cautious to have it down before it rains. That can sometimes be hard to do. Many times the rain came and I had no warning.
Recently a friend mentioned their dryer was broken and they were just going to get rid of it. Patrick mention he might be able to fix it, so they told him he could have it. A few days later they dropped it off. We plugged it in and it worked! Although it's a small dryer and I'll probably only use it for the iron free clothing and the towels, I'm thankful to have it.
