There is a generous breeze blowing through my front windows this morning. Wait. I don't have any front windows, I have three huge open cavities with a man on a ladder standing in front of each. Oooo, I am so excited as this is the day I can say good-bye to the windows I stopped cleaning long, long ago. I would have needed a blow torch to blast the forty-two years of build up off them. After today I will be able to bend in my windows and rub them clean. I will be able to see that there are houses across the street. I will be able to spy on my neighbors--not that I have any desire to, but just in case I want to I will be able to see everything-- clearly. The sunlight will permeate through the house. The bonus in all this is someone somewhere thought it would be a good idea to give me a tax credit for my new energy efficient windows, $750.
