Don't forget to set your clocks ahead Saturday night. It's also a good time to check the batteries in your smoke alarms. While you're thinking about moving your clocks forward - think about "paying it forward" and checking on your elderly relatives and friends to see if you can help them with the batteries in their alarms.

It's that time of year again - spring solar outages. Though the weather outside would tell you otherwise, in the early spring (and also in the fall), sun interference causes various channels to lose signal for short amounts of time over the course of about a week. If notice a channel not working, chances are that it's due to interference but don't hesitate to call if you have any questions.
