This time of year, it can seem as though winter will never end! Hold fast – spring is just days away! Thunderstorms, fresh dirt, blooms, and sunny sweatshirt days are headed our way. Soon we will be planning gardens, dusting off porch furniture, and grilling with friends. Here in Okoboji, one of the first things on our spring to-do list is renewing dock permits. The year-rounders and returning snowbirds are already thinking about getting on the lake. To help you get a fresh start this spring, Okoboji Realty has created a complete home maintenance checklist of the most important spring to-do’s.
