Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush
~ Doug Larson

Spring seems to put a smile on most people. And with good reason. After a long, cold winter in most areas of the country, the warm temperatures, green grass and blooming trees and flowers are invitations to get outside and air out. Its hard to not have a bounce in your step after being stuck inside without sun for so long.

Yet…enjoying the Spring does pose a challenge, doesn’t it? For many, the season brings with it unwelcome environmental elements that can trigger seasonal allergies and asthma. For others, being outside also means being active outside which, while great for health and well being, also increases injuries.

So, its a true double edged sword.

As with all seasonal issues, though, the best offense for maximizing enjoyment and minimizing hassle and issues is preparation and common sense. Here’s a list of the common situations people find themselves in during the Spring to help you stay ahead of the Spring sticky situations.

This is by now means an all inclusive list – just the highlight to get you acclimated to a new season with some new issues. I’ll add more links as the Spring takes root so check back often:
