Hopefully we’ll be seeing some higher temperatures soon. We are dreaming of Spring, and we know you are too. Here are some great tips that include a spring cleaning checklist.
1. Change your clocks, change your batteries.
When you change your clock, remember to change the battery in your smoke detector. For a few bucks, and just a couple minutes of time, you can rest assured that your family will be alerted in an emergency! Winter weather & wind can also wear on your house number. Now’s a good time to be sure that it is still visible from the road! Check out safekids.org for more info.
2. Watch for Potholes.
As the snow melts, we can really start to see the damage that’s been done to our roads during the winter. You’ll want to be extra mindful of potholes, but Monroe County is already working to get things repaired.
The Democrat and Chronicle has started a page to help people in the Greater Rochester area track potholes; take a look and see where the significant problems are.
Is there a pothole near you that didn’t make the list? Report it! Monroe County has an easy form to fill out, so that any issues can be resolved ASAP.
