At the moment, we're staying in our second house without a washing machine, and the first with a dishwasher. I actually like going to the launderette. I don't know why people have washing machines, even. At the launderette, you can hang out, go for cups of coffee, or just look around town at some of the weirder stuff.
Sequim weather station! Today the stone is wet, but I haven't seen rain for so long, I don't believe in it any more
