Don't let this guy set up your Christmas lights

I got this from the township earlier today.  It's a good read:

While decorating homes and businesses is a long-standing tradition around the holiday season, the Lower Merion Fire Department and the U.S. Fire Administration are reminding residents that, unfortunately, these same decorations may increase your chances of fire.

Following a few simple fire safety tips can keep electric lights, candles and Christmas trees from creating a tragedy.

· Don't put your live Christmas tree up too early, or leave it up for longer than two weeks.

· Place trees away from heat sources, including fireplaces or heat vents. The heat will dry out the tree, causing it to be more easily ignited by heat, flame or sparks.

· Keep the live tree stand filled with water at all times.

· Use only nonflammable decorations.

· Don't link more than three light strands, unless the directions indicate it is safe to do so. Connect strings of lights to an extension cord before plugging the cord into the outlet.

· Avoid using lit candles; consider using battery-operated flameless candles, which can look, smell and feel like real candles.

· Ensure that Christmas trees and other holiday decorations don't block an exit way.

For more tips on how to prevent a holiday fire and what to do in case a fire starts in your home, visit the U.S. Fire Administration's website at www.usfa.fema.gov.

My sources tell me that North Ardmore Civic is dealing with some weighty issues? What is going on in Ardmore?

What is going on with the cram plan for Sibley Ave?

What is going on with the Dranoff Plan and is something like that seriously going forward when Ardmore isn't even getting a new train station? Still don't get how Lower Merion is giving away land do you?

And why is it that Paoli can get a shovel in the ground, Malvern can complete a station do-over complete with updated parking and handicap accessible ramps, Wayne can do the same and yet in Ardmore nada?

And what is the HUGE rumor of Suburban Square supersizing again? Is Lower Merion really going to roll over and allow development on the Ruby's lot? Please tell me this is just a rumor?

Gladwyne - Barker Mill

Lower Merion Township would bulldoze the township building if it meant a profit and ratables from new development. I truthfully believe that. Well almost, as let us not forget the overpriced township manager likes to look down on the serfs...err residents.

Barker's Mill is all but gone in my mind. Yes there is an eloquent plea from the Lower Merion Conservancy, and yes well most thought the developer god known as Brian O'Neill was developing Barker's Mill. Guess not. He's too busy turning Malven into O'Neill Town I suppose. (Worthington and all that development on 29 in Malvern by 202)

"This cheetah is made from electricity!"

I got this note from the township today:

PECO has announced two scheduled power outages planned this week in Lower Merion Township, to replace defective equipment. The first will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 13, and the second is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15.

Both interruptions are planned to last approximately five hours, beginning at 11 PM. The two jobs were previously scheduled during Superstorm Sandy, and were cancelled. PECO reports that all customers have been notified.

On Tuesday, 74 customers are to be affected in the following locations:

  • Unit Block of W. Lancaster Ave, Ardmore
  • Unit Block of Rittenhouse Place, Ardmore

On Thursday, 54 customers are to be affected in the following locations:

  • Unit block of E. Lancaster, Ardmore
  • Unit block of Cricket Ave., Ardmore
  • Unit Block of Station Road, Ardmore

 

I'm not sure what they mean by "unit block".  It sounds confusing to me, but maybe that's an industry term that PECO uses?

I sure hope none of the bars on Cricket Ave are affected by this power outage!
