Spring Cleaning

Shaker Run - Thursday, March 20, 2014

It's that time of year again....... That's right, it's time for Spring Cleaning!!! Even though the weather has not warmed up yet and your apartment may still feel like it's stuck in the winter blues, you can get in the Spring mood with organizing and decluttering your apartment.

Below are a few websites with check lists and product(s) that you may find helpful with your Spring Cleaning.

Just as a reminder that as the warmer weather is approaching, ensure your balcony/patio is cleaned and only has the approved belongings placed. Please note we are not allowed to have any type of grill on our balcony/patio(s) as it is a fire hazard. As always, you can contact the Rental Office with any questions, concerns or maintenance requests!

Daylight Saving Time - Spring

Shaker Run - Friday, March 07, 2014

You know Spring is on its way when it's time to turn our clocks ahead! That's right, Daylight Saving Time also known as "Spring Forward" occurs this Sunday, March 9, 2014. At 2am Sunday March 9th, you need to adjust your clocks to show that it is 3am. This is a bittersweet switch as it means Spring is on its way (YAY!!!) but for non-morning folks this means 1 less hour of sleep.

A little history fact on Daylight saving time - it is a change in the standard time with the purpose of getting more of the daylight by having the sun rise 1 hour later in the morning and having the sun set 1 hour later in the evening. Daylight saving time is now implemented in over 70 countries worldwide and affects over a billion people each year.

Here's to the warming weather and NO MORE SNOW!!! I know I'm ready to see green grass and beautiful flowers.
