The terrace accumulates city dust like crazy. Every time I do anything out there - except sit and watch the world go buy - I get horrible cough attack. I try to keep my exposure at a minimum but this time I decided to try a gas mask.
Worked great! I washed all four windows. I picked up the leaves from The Tree That I Hate (which, for my enjoyment, seems to toss leaves onto my terrace all year around). I cleaned off the table and chairs and moved the planter back out onto the table and vacuumed up the carpet.
It looks great!!
I told the building manager that work on the inside repair needs to wait until after April 1. I forgot to designate what year. That oversight will likely come back and bite me in the ass.
