Two washers, no dryer and no sun

I have two of these nice little Whirlpool washers at the house but no dryer. In Mexico hardly anyone has dryers except the laundry's (lavanderias). I've done my own laundry for the last three years but what are you going to do when it rains for two weeks. Indoor clotheslines kinda work but they get in the way and the clothes take forever to dry. A perfect time to have my laundry done and a pillow case full only cost 35 pesos (about $3)

Speaking of rain, I have a hose running to the street to keep the pool from overflowing into the patio, the palapa leaks, the roof leaks and crabs find their way into the house regularly. That's just the house that I am house sitting. The roof leaks on my house as well so am waiting for a dry spell, that by the looks of it will never come.   This rain is from the remnants of tropical storm Arlene that crossed Mexico from the Gulf.

We did not get as much rain in San Miguel as you did. But we are still struggling through winds.

I got into the laundress habit earlier in the year, and I doubt I will go back to doing my own laundry. Anita does it far better. And I certainly cannot complain about the price.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
