Remember that little thing called the sun? We know — it’s hard.

Recalling the warmth that the sun provides when there aren’t Nor’easters blocking it out is no easy task.

Though spring has officially sprung, we’ve got a bit longer to go before we can truly enjoy all that spring has to offer here in Philadelphia.

Until then, start packing up your winter gear a little bit at a time to get you ready for the warm weather that lies ahead. Then let Closetbox take it from there. Once you’ve closed the lid on your box of winter coats and sweaters, your ski gear, and all your other cold-weather needs, simply pick up your phone and call Closetbox to come and pick it up.

Our professional movers will come to your home, pick up your winter boxes, and take them to a safe and secure storage unit where they will be under careful watch until you’re ready for them next year.

Then you can really start planning your exciting fun-filled spring.

With all the events happening around Philadelphia this spring, you’ve got a lot of planning to keep you busy throughout the rest of the Nor’easter season.

So grab your calendar and prepare yourself for a fabulous spring.

Visit to the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum

Though Philadelphia is known for its fabulous museums, there are some that fly under the radar sometimes that are worth checking out.

One such museum is the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum.

Founded 10 years ago, this museum has been awarded “Museum of the Year” for all automotive museums in the entire world.

Whether you’re a huge fan of cars or not, you’ll appreciate the collection the museum has. The only Bugatti Tank in the entire world sits in this museum, and with its trophy for winning the 1937 Le Mans 24-hour race.

Twice a month, the museum takes a number of the cars on display out to its 3-acre parking lot and runs them around. During each event, Dr. Simeone, known for his knowledge of racing sports cars, gives a short lecture.
