Hope springs eternal as Daylight Savings comes once again on Sunday, March 10th, and with it comes the wanderlust of the season, the throw open the windows and dance in the rain kinda days, the sipping and swinging on the front porch kinda days, the backyard BBQ days...

AND, it's also time for some spring home maintenance. This list might not be everything you have to do, but it will give you great start.
