Agreed Erewhon does not social distance. I’ve walked out several times. I suggested a chalkboard to list items at the hot food counter when they told me they couldn’t put up a menu because the items change constantly. It’s impossible to see what they have unless you go up close and that’s where the cluster is really terrible.
I am sure you have all heard it but I personally don’t think you have heard it enough. Neighbors please continue to be careful and cautious with this virus. You do not want to end up on a ventilator, the situation is horrific in our county unfortunately. Focus on protecting yourself, your loved ones and on getting out of this thing safely.
I’m a resident of the Palisades and I recently had some mail stolen in the village – several times. I used the drive-thru mailbox across from Noah’s. Others are experiencing this too, according to Nextdoor. I can’t put a note on the mailbox, because that’s illegal but I want to help residents. This is a warning – the thieves stole checks, it was super stressful. Thank you and stay healthy.
I was all set to debunk the “Green Tip” Leaf Blower article that said a 25 to 30cc two stroke leaf blower was as polluting as a 1100 mile trip in a car, assuming an average 2 litre (2000cc) 4 cylinder gas engine. But! Before digging myself into a hole, I thought I’d research it and, I WAS WRONG! Turns out the leaf blowers really are “dirty” machines and one study said “If you look at the unburnt hydrocarbons you find that this leaf blower in 30 minutes of operation…is, in fact, emitting more hydrocarbons than driving an Ford F- 150 or any light-duty pick up from New York City to Los Angeles”! A Ford F-150 has a 2.7 litre econo V-6 option to a stomping 5.7 litre V-8 and I assume they were using the smaller engine to compare, but still! Time to go electric or battery, eh! Also, Ford should start an as campaign: The F-150, less polluting than a leaf blower!
Thank you so much for partnering with Resilient and giving your Green Tip last week! Palisadians are usually so community and health conscious, but regularly forget (or ignore) how harmful, disgusting, and disrespectful gas blowers are. They are banned for good reason. There is no excuse for any resident of the Palisades to have a gardener who still uses a gas blower!
Huntington Palisades is the bougiest neighborhood but the sign looks like you’re entering a campground!
