Green Cleaning For Spring Cleaning!
Microfiber cleaning cloths and mops can reduce and in many cases eliminate the need to use harsh chemicals or other toxic cleaning products. The cloths also reduce trash, since they can be washed and reused. Source: Harvard University Office of Sustainability

When Lightning Strikes
If you're caught in lightning storm, crouch down to the ground, cover your ears, and keep a minimum of 15 feet between yourself and another person. If one of you is hit, the lightning won't travel between you.

Seek cover when you first hear thunder or see lightning in the distance. Go to your vehicle and keep the windows rolled up. Avoid high ground, water, and all metal objects as much as possible. Unsafe places include canopies, rain shelters, or near trees.
