February is a time to celebrate love, Black History, and the early arrival of spring weather.
The second month of the year is one to love or hate, depending on your level of appreciation for cold weather. It’s a great one for the skiers and a not-so-great one for sun bathers. Below is a list of “climate-controlled” activities for those dreaming of beach weather.
Not long after the groundhog’s special day on February 2nd, it’s time to celebrate your favorite loved one with candy, flowers and a special night out.
It all began when the Feast of Saint Valentine was established by Pope Gelasius I in AD 496, celebrated on February 14. It was in honor of Valentine of Rome who died on the same date in AD 269 and became a martyred saint. So the date — which is now synonymous with St. Valentine’s Day — has significance, but it wasn’t until the 14th Century it became associated with romantic love.

February is Black History Month
The origins of celebrating the accomplishments of Black Americans starts in 1915. But it wasn’t until 1976 that government leaders brought national recognition to annually celebrating pioneers like boxer Jack Johnson, activist Rosa Parks, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, Scientist George Washington Carver and so many more.

Softwash Pressure Washing Keeps Your Property Safe
Pressure washing damage can be costly, because replacing building materials is never cheap.
Softwash is the technique true pressure washing professionals use on even the toughest buildup. Camelot Pressure Washing’s cleaning professionals are trained in the best way to use softwash. Their techs use “just the right water pressure,” combined with gentle, environmentally-friendly detergents. Once the detergent takes affect, the technician can gently wash away the grime.
They use the softwash technique to safely clean nearly every surface on a property, specializing in house washing, and effectively pressure washing fences, sidewalks, patios, decks and driveways. They even remove graffiti and install gutter guard protection.
