    In case anyone is like me and has been hoarding a stack of old T5HO fluorescent lamps that they can't bring themselves to put in the trash can, you can drop those off for free in Grimes on the second Saturday of the month from 8am-noon March-December.

    So this weekend is the last one until springtime!!
