This reminded me to call our HVAC folks to change out a pump in our attic to a gravity fed device so thanks for that reminder:)! Also, here in the PNW, we put our window washing task off till May since we get a lot of rain in April. Waiting one more month helps me anyways get through summer without another washing. Also, reading this article makes me a little anxious only because now I want to either wash my siding or just have it replaced with new stuff so thanks for that!! :)))!!

The perimeter of my house is protected from termites and checked regularly, so I don't mind when the termites swarm from a big old stump, in the Spring. They're just doing their job of breaking it down. I enjoy watching the many types of birds that swoop in to eat the termites. That's their job.
