How Dry I Am 0

Concord, Mass., draws a line on the right to dry:

First, the Town of Concord. Next, the world. Environmentalists in Concord scored an important victory last week when residents at Town Meeting passed the state’s first “right to dry’’ measure. Homeowners’ associations and real estate contracts in Concord can no longer prohibit the use of clotheslines.

It does not apply to existing restrictions and compacts.

The story goes on to point out that “a nightlight uses 5 watts of energy, a vacuum cleaner 1,000 watts, a clothes dryer 5,000 watts.”
