Airing dirty laundry.....

8:08 am - Friday - October 12th - New Castle, DE - 58º F, 65% humidity, wind 16 mph out of the northwest.....partly cloudy with a forecast high today of 62º F.  Rained all night, and was oh so humid.  Finally turned on the front A/C around 12:30 am when it hit 86º F inside.  The storm front finally blew through and now we have cold temps, and low humidity again!  We roll our wheels in 3 hours!

The forecast for Thursday was rain all day, so we had no big aspirations except to do a few loads of laundry.  Normally we would do our wash in our splendid Splendide, but we have no sewer connection, and have not had one for two weeks, so we found ourselves in need of  a laundromat.  On the way into the Elks Lodge we noticed a laundromat just around the corner.....perfect!

Around noon time, in between rain storms, we gathered our dirty laundry and drove over to the laundromat.  It was a pretty nice one as laundromats go, but they are still not my favorite places to spend time.  On top of that it was very, very humid and combined with the washing machines/dryers running made it quite warm inside.  The only seats were along the front windows where the sun was shinning through quite intensely. 

Finally we were getting to the folding part of this exercise, and the end was in sight.  As we loaded our clean laundry into the VW it was obvious it would not be raining again for a while as the sun was out magnifying the humidity.  Thankfully we left our A/C on and were able to return to a cool, dry Newell interior.  

I hadn't been feeling well all morning.....had kind of a scratchy throat, and didn't really feel like doing anything else, so we cancelled our plans to go and see 'First Man' at 7:30 pm.  That will have to wait for another day.  The rain returned with a vengeance around 6:30 pm, and it rained the rest of the evening, and was still raining when we went to bed a little after 10 pm.
