March 21st marks the first day of spring! To get you ready for the change of seasons we have included a to-do list for what you need to do in the spring. We also want to remind you that daylight savings time kicks off on March 11th. As we "spring our clocks forward", we also need to double check the batteries in our smoke detectors.

We have also included some important information on home insurance and what you'll need to do to keep your home dry. Expect some sun and some showers this month, but more importantly, expect some fun home improvement advice.

We will also take a stroll into the kitchen of Dom DeLuise to see what he will be cooking up this month. Thanks for reading and we'll see you in April!
