Winter Weather Tips The Weather Outside is Frightful, Do You Know What to Do? While no one can predict with any certainty what Mother Nature has up her sleeve this winter, we do know this: Pennsylvania is going to get snow, chilly temperatures, some freezing rain, and maybe even a blizzard and everyone needs to be prepared. The following safety information is courtesy of ready.gov, the official website of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security: When winter arrives, meteorologists and newscasters toss around many terms. You know they mean something, but what? Here's an explanation and what you should do:

Winter weather advisory The National Weather Service (NWS) issues these advisories when conditions are expected to cause significant inconveniences that may be hazardous. If caution is used, these situations should not be life-threatening.

Winter storm watch The NWS issues these watches when severe winter conditions, such as heavy snow or ice, may affect your area; however, the location and timing are still uncertain. Watches are issued 12 to 36 hours before a potentially severe storm. Keep on top of the situation by tuning into NOAA weather radio, local radio and TV stations, and other

Radnor News

news sources. Also, monitor alerts, check your emergency supplies, and gather any items you may need if you lose power.

Winter storm warning Life-threatening, severe winter conditions have begun or will begin within 24 hours. People in the warning area should take precautions immediately.

Blizzard warning These warnings indicate that sustained winds and gusts of 35 miles per hour or more and considerable falling or blowing snow are expected to prevail for three hours or more. Again, people should take precautions.

Learn the difference between frostbite and hypothermia. Frostbite occurs when the skin and body tissue just beneath it freezes. Symptoms include a loss of feeling and a white or pale appearance in the extremities, such as fingers, toes, earlobes, face, and the tip of the nose. What to do for frostbite: Cover exposed skin but do not rub the affected area in an attempt to warm it. Seek medical help immediately. Hypothermia, on the other hand, is a dangerously low body temperature. The symptoms are uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, slurred speech, drowsiness, and apparent exhaustion. If you suspect that someone has hypothermia, take his/her temperature. If it is below 95 degrees, seek medical attention immediately. Get the victim to a warm location, remove his wet clothing, and warm the center of the body first by wrapping the person in blankets or putting him in dry clothing. If the victim is conscious, give him warm, non-alcoholic beverages.

Why do People Die Shoveling Snow? National Safety Council recommends the following tips to shovel safely. Do not shovel after eating or while smoking Take it slow and stretch out before you begin Shovel only fresh, powdery snow; it's lighter Push the snow rather than lifting it If you do lift it, use a small shovel or only partially fill the shovel Lift with your legs, not your back Do not work to the point of exhaustion

Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse, the Polar Vortex, SnOMG! There is no end to the terms for "really big snowstorm," and those terms came in handy, particularly during the 2014-'15 winter. Just check out snowfall totals in the Top 10 Snowiest Cities, according to Accuweather.com: Syracuse, NY .........................117.1" Worchester, MA ....................115.6" Buffalo, NY............................109.3" Boston, MA ...........................108.6" Erie, PA.....................................104" Rochester, NY..........................96.3" South Bend, IN........................79.2" Grand Rapids, MI ....................77.9" Providence, RI.........................73.5" Manchester, NH ......................69.7“ But with really big snow storms -- and even everyday, run-of-the-mill snowfalls -- comes a risk of death by shoveling. According to CBS News in Chicago, by early February 2015, around 18 people in the Chicago area had died in snow shoveling-related incidents. They ranged in age from their 40s to 75. Nationwide, snow shoveling is responsible for thousands of injuries and as many as 100 deaths each year. So, why so many deaths? Shoveling snow is just another household chore, right? Not at all, says Harvard Health Executive Editor Patrick J. Skerrett.

Don't pick up that shovel without a doctor's permission if you have a history of heart disease. If you feel tightness in the chest or dizziness, stop immediately. A clear driveway is not worth your life. "Picking up a shovel and moving hundreds of pounds of snow, particularly after doing nothing physical for several months, can put a big strain on the heart," Skerrett wrote in February 2013. Pushing a heavy snow blower also can cause injury. And, there's the cold factor. Cold weather can increase heart rate and blood pressure. It can make blood clot more easily and constrict arteries, which decreases blood supply. This is true even in healthy people. Individuals over the age of 40 or who are relatively inactive should be particularly careful.

Snow Blower Safety Be safe with these tips from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons: If the blower jams, turn it off Keep your hands away from the moving parts Do not drink alcohol and use the snow blower Be aware of the carbon monoxide risk of running a snow blower in an enclosed space Refuel your snow blower when it is off, never when it is running National Safety Council Mission

Parking Lots Are Riskier Than You Think More than 50,000 crashes occur in parking lots and garage structures annually, resulting in 500 or more deaths and more than 60,000 injuries. And, around the holidays, parking lots become even more dangerous.

Police Department: Stay in lanes and avoid cutting across lots Drive slowly and use directional signals Anticipate the actions of other drivers Obey stop signs and no-parking signs When backing out, be mindful of vehicles and pedestrians Watch for small children and parents with baby strollers

Auto insurers report the number of claims spike on Black Friday and run above normal throughout the holiday shopping season. The number of incidents is probably higher than insurance claims indicate, as many fenderbenders go unreported.

Tapping into Technology

NSC analysis of government data indicates more than one-third of pedestrian deaths in parking lots result from backup incidents. Many vehicles today are equipped with backup cameras, which provide a wide view behind a vehicle operating in reverse, but that view may not be clear if the camera lens becomes obstructed.

So Many Distractions

Thousands of pedestrians end up with broken bones, tissue damage or even worse because of cell phone or other distractions in parking lots. In a National Safety Council public opinion poll, 66% of drivers nationwide said they would make phone calls while driving through parking lots. Respondents also said they would: Program GPS systems (63%) Text (56%) Use social media (52%) Send or receive emails (50%) Take photos or watch videos (49%)

Three safety reminders: It's best to conduct a quick, 360-degree walk-around before backing, keeping an eye out for low-lying objects

Choosing the right parking spot can go a long way toward deterring theft and crime. Consumer Reports provides some simple safety rules: Pick spots that are well-lit and close to stores you will be shopping at Lock your doors Store purchases in places that are out of sight (in the trunk or tucked under darkcolored blankets) Large parking lots, such as those found at shopping malls, are considered most vulnerable to crime, according to the Urban Institute Justice Policy Center. One way for consumers to steer clear of trouble is to pick a lot where pedestrian traffic is restricted and video surveillance equipment is used to monitor the facility.

Don't rely completely on technology; look over your shoulder and use your mirrors as you back up

NSC found teens (59%) were more likely to engage in personal grooming than adults (53%) while driving in parking lots, but less likely to be on the phone (60% vs. 66%).

When parking, pull through on arrival whenever possible and if it works with the flow of traffic Monitoring systems can alert drivers of vehicles in blind spots. Typically, drivers are warned of another vehicle's presence via symbol, sound or vibration. These systems may not detect motorcycles, smaller objects or people, however.

During the hectic holiday season, drivers and pedestrians also are likely to be distracted by extensive to-do lists and are hurriedly trying to get from one place to another.

Stay Alert

Other Parking Lot Pitfalls

Safety isn't guaranteed just by driving slowly in parking lots. Following are some safety tips for drivers courtesy of the Oswego (IL)

Inadequate pavement striping, potholes or cracks, lack of signage, debris, poor lighting,

puddles, and snow and ice also can lead to pedestrian injuries. Slips, trips and falls are common in parking lots, and falls in general are the leading cause of death for older adults.

Salt Alternatives For Treating Icy Sidewalks & Driveways Spreading rock salt (sodium chloride) on roads and driveways reduces ice formation, allowing for safer travel for pedestrians and motorists. Too much salt, however, can corrode metal on cars, damage gardens and trees, and pollute our local streams. All landowners can be part of the solution by using alternative products or by using salt at recommended times and rates. There are several products that can be used instead of salt. Here are a few options to consider: Sand, clean kitty litter, and used coffee grounds - These products provide great traction. Sand can easily be swept up and disposed of afterwards, but kitty litter often creates mushy clumps. These products will absorb sunlight, contributing to melting and will not harm nearby plants and soil. Ashes - For those with a wood burning fireplace, ashes are a great option. They provide a lot of traction and absorb sunlight, so will melt ice quickly on a sunny day. And they're free! Beet juice - Increasingly being used by highway departments on its own or mixed with salt, this safe and natural product

allows ice to melt even when air temperatures are extremely cold. Potassium acetate, calcium magnesium acetate - Acetates are super-effective even at extremely low temperatures and are biodegradable. The drawback? Price. They cost several times as much as rock salt and can be difficult to find. This is a good solution for small areas in environmentally sensitive locations, such as floodplains. Other "chlorides": calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, potassium chloride Rock salt (sodium chloride) is not the only chloride product that can melt ice. These other products are generally more expensive than rock salt, but work better at low temperatures. Calcium chloride is the preferred choice over magnesium chloride, as it works at lower temperatures and is applied at a lower rate, leading to less chloride in our streams. Potassium chloride is considered safest for pets and plants, but is often more expensive and does not work well at lower temperatures. All chloride products contribute to pollutant loads in our streams and their use should be minimized. If rock salt is the only reasonable alternative for your property, remember:

Remove as much ice and snow off paved surfaces as you can before applying salt to speed up melting A little salt can go a long way: Rock salt should be applied at about a handful per square yard Calcium chloride should be spread even thinner, about a handful for 3 square yards The air temperature matters. Rock salt is fiveo times more effective at melting ice at 30 F than 20oF, and ineffective below 20oF. Calcium chloride is better for temperatures down to 0oF. Applying early can prevent ice crystals from forming and minimize the amount of salt used overall.

FACT: Stormwater runoff can pick up chemicals, debris, dirt, and other pollutants that will contaminate our water. It is a common misconception that stormwater is treated before it reaches the waterways. Message from Chester Ridley Crum Watersheds Association and the CRC MS4 Education and Outreach Partnership

Ways To Help The Snow Plow Crews In order for the roads to be most effectively cleared, please keep these helpful tips in mind. Trash Cans: Trash receptacles should not be placed on the street. This inhibits the snow removal vehicles from doing their job. Please place your trash cans either on the lawn or curb in front of your property.

Parking: From the beginning of the storm until the roadway is cleared, vehicles, trailers, boats or campers should not be parked in the roadway.

Sidewalks: Keeping sidewalks safe is another important winter concern. Residents must clear snow, sleet and ice from the sidewalks in front of their property no more than 24 hours after the snow or storm ceases. Property owners are also required to keep the sidewalk treated with material to abate ice and snow. Hydrants: Please help our fire companies by clearing around fire hydrants after a storm.

Driveways and Parking Lots: Pushing, plowing or throwing snow from private property into the street is prohibited because it is a road hazard. Snow should never be plowed onto or across a roadway.

Dog Training: Indoor Play & Outdoor Safety Winter is here! Snow, cold weather and shorter days are finally upon us. If you have an active or playful dog, this can mean more time spent indoors and potentially more home destruction that you care to imagine. Knowing that your dog needs more stimulation and energy expenditure, there is plenty you can do to entertain your pup inside while instilling good habits and behaviors for the future. While some dogs love to run and play o u t d o o r s r e g a r d l e s s o f t h e fa l l i n g temperature, you may not always want to be out there with them, which can lead to a pretty frustrated pup. To keep your dog happy and warm this winter, plan ahead and prepare some fun indoor activities that engage their mind and body. Instead of offering your dog their full meal in a bowl for breakfast or dinner, try making a game of meal time. This is one instance where playing with your food can be fun and stimulating! There are many commercially made puzzle toys on the market today and choosing one your dog will enjoy is as easy as judging their play style. If you have a smaller dog who likes to chase things, you might want to consider a treat ball or cube. Larger dogs (or dogs susceptible to bloat) can still have fun, but consider a stationary board game, puzzle, or wobble toy. Giving your dog the chance to engage with their food in a more thoughtprovoking manner can give them an outlet for their mental energy and keep them occupied far longer than a simple bowl feeding. You can even freeze a yummy treat inside a KongŠ with some broth, yogurt, or peanut butter for

a tasty twist on meal time. If your dog is used to regular play time in your yard or out on a walk, but you need to curb their outdoor time, try engaging them in some indoor fun! One great game to play with your dog is hide and seek. Start with two people and have some great treats or toys ready. While one person hides, the other can distract the dog. The hider can then call the dog and reward with a game or snack once found. This gives the other person a chance to hide and repeat the game! This is a lot of fun for you and your dog (especially if you can get some kids in on the action) and can also reinforce a strong recall! Mixing training into play is an all-around win. Did you ever build a pillow fort as a kid? Well, you can put your fort designing skills back into action to teach your dog some house-safe agility. Using pillows, chairs, broomsticks, etc., you can build a simple and safe obstacle course for your dog. Try tunneling under a few chairs, jumping over a broomstick, or you can even weave around pillows. Agility games are fun (and tiring!) and can be a great way to get in some exercise while staying in the comfort of your own home. Indoor agility can also be a good time to practice hand targets and the "stay"command if you're looking to add some training into your play time. A tasty treat or fetch ball can also be used to help motivate your pup over the obstacles.

their feet as soon as you get home to prevent paw injuries. For your own home, you can buy pet-safe salt alternatives to help with any icy conditions. When you can't avoid salted areas, foot protection may be needed but be sure to buy only soft shoes or covers, as hardsoled shoes can lead to joint injuries for dogs because they do not walk heel-toe the way people do. You may also notice packed snow or ice on long-haired pets in their coats. Simply use the low setting on your hair dryer or a warm towel to help break up the larger chunks. By planning fun and stimulating indoor activities for your dog this winter season, you can help eliminate boredom and reinforce good behavior all while keeping you both warm and dry. Tamar Paltin - Dog Trainer

If you choose to spend times outdoor this winter with your pup, it's important to keep a few safety tips in mind. For breeds with a shortcoat or short muzzle, the cold can be hazardous, so be sure to bundle them up in appropriate winter gear and offer plenty of warm play breaks as needed. If your neighborhood uses salt to prevent ice formation, you should try to walk your dog on unsalted areas and be sure to wash and dry

Jenkins Arboretum - What We Do In Winter People often ask what we do here at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens during the winter months. The most important part of our winter work is keeping track of the Arboretum's collections through plant recording and mapping. We have to record accurate information on where each plant originated, when it was planted, how it was nurtured, and exactly where it is located in the Arboretum. There are over 12,000 woody plants at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens. Record keeping is a significant and crucial task. We were fortunate to receive a generous grant from The Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust a few years ago that has enabled us to convert our mapping from paper to a computer database. This conversion project brings us up to modern botanical garden standards. Keeping up with records in the computer database is good work for cold winter days. Labels for each plant with both Latin and common names are created during the chilling winter months, as well.

some of the garden areas. In a bleak winter landscape, one can often see more clearly what may need reorganization or rethinking. In the winter garden, we do a lot of pruning: suckers, water sprouts, and crossing branches must be removed. We prune or cut back late blooming shrubs that form buds on new wood.

What other kinds of tasks do we do? Even in the winter, 1 ½ miles of trails must be cleared every day either of leaf debris, snow, or ice for the safety of our visitors. Our paths are now resurfaced with Porous Pave, thanks to generous grant funding from the McLean Contributionship and the Mars Foundation. Snow removal with plows, snow blowers, and shovels on the parking lot, at times, seems perpetual! Again, the safety of our visitors is our paramount concern. Winter also gives the Arboretum staff a wonderful chance to reassess or sometimes design or redesign

On snowy winter days, seed catalogs are poured over to make the best selections early. Reading and research are important parts of planning for spring. We must know the histories and natural habitats of plants in the collection or those we are considering so that the optimal growing conditions can be determined before actual planting time arrives in spring. In the shop, all hand tools are s h a r p e n e d , o i l e d , a n d o r g a n i z ed . Maintenance is done on all power equipment including mowers, chain saws, and other power tools.

In the greenhouse, plant propagation is ongoing. The horticulture staff is busy scarifying or cleaning seeds and rooting cuttings. Did you know that the reason a seed is encased in a protective covering is that inside the casing there are inhibitors that keep the seeds from germinating at the wrong time of the year? Once the seeds are removed from the casing (or in some situations once the casing is punctured), they can be planted in soil and the seeds will germinate. Much of the work we do in winter in the greenhouse is propagation from seeds. Check our website at www.jenkinsarboretum.org from time to time for events and interesting programs, which are often offered free of charge or at nominal cost. Admission is always FREE 365 days a year from 8 AM to sunset. Come for a walk in our beautiful woodland! Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens is located at 631 Berwyn Baptist Road in Devon.

Tali Guy's Recipe Page Apple Roses Apple Roses are beautiful and tasty pastries. The unique cutting of the apples and the dough creates a rose flower shape that will bring grace to the dinner table.

Ingredients: 4 baking apples (red apples will provide a look of red roses) Juice of 1 lemon Puff pastry roll Âź cup sugar 2 tsp cinnamon 1 stick melted butter 2 tbs powder sugar All rights reserved to Avital Guy Tali Guy was born in Israel and traveled all around the world, where she was exposed to various exotic cuisines and cultures. She enjoys cooking, baking and entertaining family and friends. Tali and her son Nir own and operate Perfumology, a luxury perfume shop located in the Court of the King of Prussia Mall.

Preparation: Grease a muffin pan and dust with flour. Cut the apples in half and remove the cores. Slice the apples into thin slices and wet them with lemon juice to prevent darkening. Spread the apple slices on a flat plate in several batches and microwave for 45 seconds. The apples should be flexible and keep their shape. Roll the dough, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a mix of sugar and cinnamon. Cut the dough into strips 12"-15" long and 2.5"-3" wide. Place the apple slices along the long edge of the pastry strip beginning 1" from its end. The apple slices should be placed so that they extend a little over the long edge of the dough, and overlap each other a little. Fold the bottom half of the dough up over the apples, leaving the edges of the apples exposed beyond the dough. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a mix of sugar and cinnamon. Roll the strips, stand them upward, and place on the muffin pan. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, or until they become golden. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan. Garnish with powder sugar before serving. Bon AppÊtit! Please Support Our Advertisers ¡ To Advertise Call 610-265-6277

How To Recognize An At-Risk Tree An 8 Point Check-Up Residents are encouraged to plant and care for trees and to appreciate the numerous ways that trees benefit the community. While most trees are great asset to both public and residential properties, one of the great concerns that homeowners have, of course, is the possibility that their tree or a neighbor's tree might break apart or fall and cause serious property or personal damage.

___2 Leaning tree? Look closely if a trunk that seems tilted or twisted also has exposed roots or a mound of soil near its base, this poses a potential serious hazard. Consult a certified arborist.

Step Two: Walk up to the tree and check trunk and branches for defects. ___3. Multiple trunks? Check multiple stem or branch situations for cracks or splits where they all converge. If several trunks of similar size converge at their base and resemble wishbones, examine where they are attached to assure that it is a strong union. Otherwise they are prone to split apart in wind and ice storms.

Some trees fall unpredictably, but most incidents can be attributed to serious structural issues that make trees vulnerable to weather events. The signs and symptoms of key risk factors can be easily identified by residents during a 30 minute, three-step inspection of their trees once or twice a year as they mature. Routinely checking trees for common structural defects reveals potential hazards early so they can be remedied before there is an incident. Note: With older or very large trees, it may be safer to contact an arborist to do the inspections.

Step One: Stand away from your tree and take a good look into its branch canopy. This best done with deciduous trees after their leaves fall. ___1 Dead, hanging or broken branches? Remove any of these branches that are larger than 2 inches immediately.

How To Recognize An At-Risk Tree ___4. Weak branch unions? Check branches larger than 3 inches in diameter where they attach to the trunk. A crack or split there indicates potential problems. Remove the branch before a storm does. ___5. Trunk and/or branches have cracks? Measure the crack depth with a pencil or screwdriver. Call a certified arborist to inspect any cracks that extend beneath the bark into the wood. ___6. Signs of decayed wood? Inspect tree trunks and large branches for rotted wood, large cavities, mushrooms and fungi growing on the bark surface. Check exposed roots, too, for similar signs of decay.

Step Three: Look downward and inspect

the base of the tree. ___7. Roots injured? Examine the base of the tree trunk for signs of horizontal cuts or chewed bark tissue caused by string trimmer or rodent damage. Take measures to prevent further damage. ___8. Roots bulging, overlapping? Remove any soil or mulch that is mounded over the root flare at the base of the trunk to check for a flat side to the trunk. This may indicate girdling roots that constrict nutrient flow to the tree. Consult a certified arborist about this serious situation.
