    That first fresh spring day, when the snow is finally gone and the sky is clear and blue, always heralds the beginning of my spring cleaning craze. First, I throw open all the windows to let in that cool, fresh breeze. Then I start scouring from top to bottom — windows, rugs, floors. My concentration is unbroken; no surface escapes me.
