Pro: You have a nice neighbor out there somewhere who takes your laundry off the line so it doesn't get wet.
You can actually have a place to walk instead of totally squishing through the mud.
Con: There is not a drainage system, so the paved street turns into a few rivers (question: where does the water go?)
There has to be another con... I guess it would be that you get soaking wet walking home, but thankfully I've learned, so I waited this one out.
