Virus and the City: Spring Cleaning

For people who read my blog, you know that twice a year I engage in a major cleaning: Spring Cleaning and Holiday Cleaning. I’m going to start Spring Cleaning early, no explanation needed, I don’t think. You know what one of the hardest parts of Spring Cleaning is? Picking the day to clean the windows. You want to do it before the longest no-rain stretch you can coordinate. However, I’m seeing nothing but rain every few days for the foreseeable future. And bright clean sparkling windows is key to a Spring Cleaning. What should I do??
