A quick reminder that we “spring ahead” (we lose an hour of sleep) this weekend. Set your clock ahead one hour on Sunday, March 12.
While you’re at it, make sure your smoke alarms are working, and check that the batteries have plenty of charge. Ready? Hold your ears and briefly push the Test button.
This is also a great time to check the expiration dates of your emergency supplies. Things that can expire:
- Prescription medications
- First-aid supplies
What? You don’t have an emergency stash yet? It’s easy to do. Find or buy a backpack, or get one of those many shopping bags for your personal supplies, then buy two or three things each time you go to the store. Here’s a handy list with links for more information.
