Climate change puts hundreds of Superfund sites at risk

"Hundreds of toxic superfund sites are vulnerable to extreme weather. I'M NPR chief meteorologist Paul Kutner here with climate cast. Hurricane, Harvey Dump Forty five to sixty inches of rain on the Houston area in two thousand seventeen the extreme floodwaters inundated more than one hundred and fifty thousand homes. They also breached toxic superfund site washing deadly chemicals down. In concentrations more than two thousand times. The EPA required cleanup level according to inside climate news. Just. How many of these superfund sites are risk and exposed to these extreme weather events? Frank Coal Ash is the climate director at the Minnesota Pollution? Control Agency. Frank Welcome to climate cast. Hi, Paul Thank you for having me on today the Government Accountability Office reported last year that nine hundred, forty, five superfund sites across the US are vulnerable to hurricanes flooding, sea level rise increased precipitation or wildfires. I see fourteen of those are in Minnesota. What is it about the location of these toxic sites that makes them does too extreme weather events. What we know with a changing climate in Minnesota is that we are seeing heavier rainfall which presents a risk for flooding at some of these sites and the impacts to both surface waters near the sites and potentially groundwater near these sites which we are. Managing and controlling for the toxic chemicals that have been found there. So it's really within Minnesota and the way that our climate is changing is looking at how that precipitation regime is changing, and we've seen that in the mid West here in Nebraska in twenty eighteen, there was a superfund site there that was impacted by the massive flooding. It didn't leach any toxins, but I'm wondering has Minnesota seen any close calls like that? I'm not aware of any close calls that we've seen regarding specific flooding events in Minnesota but certainly, that risk exists anytime that we are seeing a changing climate like we have in that, we're trying to manage sites that have these toxic chemicals on them from past pollution events that we're trying to maintain keep people protected from especially our most vulnerable populations, and we know that one of the biggest climate changes were observing recording in Minnesota are these mega rainfall events these six to eight plus in Sch- rainfall events how is that being incorporated into your? Planning for these sites yes, and that is the kind of work that we're just really getting started with looking at our ability to understand what's going to happen with a rainfall like that and and is the water going to go and where are we at risk for a significant floods? How will that rainfall interact with any of the protective coverings or protections that have been built around the superfund sites and how that may impact the contaminants as they they are moving on the site, and hopefully we're able to keep them from moving away from her saying. Frank superfund sites were talking about clean up. After the fact, I'm curious how climate change can be taken into account before potentially hazardous developments break ground. Yes, and that is an area that we're particularly looking at right now we are providing funding to cities to be able to do climate resiliency and adaptation plans to be able to identify how the rainfall and precipitation flooding events are going to impact not just contamination contaminated sites but the infrastructure that we rely upon many people are concerned about potential pollution from mining projects in northern. MINNESOTA, in sensitive areas like the boundary waters, how can we be sure future extreme rainfall events won't breach containment of those proposed sites. We we continue to look at the best science and the best research about how we can we predict what these large rainfall events are going to look like, and then build that into the planning processes our permitting processes, frank coal, ash climate director for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Thanks so much. Thank you.

Fueled By Climate Change, Hurricanes Are Causing Industrial Accidents. Who's Liable?

"So, you just got back from the Gulf coast where you were covering Hurricane Laura. How was your trip? The, hurricane damage was really bad. You know a lot of people down there have lost their homes, which is hard to see. Yeah and just to remind everybody Laura was the one that hit the Texas Louisiana border in August. This storm is clearly roaring. You're reaching that critical moment here. This now joins an elite group. It's in the top ten, a small elite group of the most dangerous hurricanes to ever make landfall into the US residents along the Gulf coast are bracing for potential devastation, Hurricane Lara and that area is so flat. It is so full of petrochemical facilities to their these refineries, a lot of new natural gas infrastructure, their chemical plants that manufacture all sorts of things like plastics and solvents actually even the raw materials for p. p. e., a lot of them are manufactured. Rubber gloves and surgical masks. So so what happened when the hurricane of hit all of that a lot of them shut down and when petrochemical facilities shutdown they usually release a lot of pollution right stuff that can't safely sit in pipes. So it has to be released or burn and preliminary estimates just in Texas showed that more than four million extra pounds of pollution were released. That was actually before the storm even made landfall. But the reason I wanted to talk to you is because one chemical plant caught fire because of the storm that is a look at I ten, which has now been shut down as these plumes of smoke emerged about an hour ago. The governor now is confirming this as a chemical fire has made an emergency crews responded to the inferno at via lab in Lake Charles which manufacturers pull supplies. Okay. So we've we've talked about this on the show before it didn't chemical plant in Texas catch fire after another hurricane Hurricane Harvey. Ago Yes and we talked about it on this very podcast because that fire in Texas started this totally new kind of legal battle, a climate change criminal lawsuit, and I have to say so far there is no indication that this most recent fire will lead to similar litigation but with this really active hurricane season that we're having in the super hot water in the Gulf of Mexico hoping spawn these strong. Storms head right for America's petrochemical centers I thought it might be a good moment to revisit that story and the questions that raises. So this episode, we're going to hear that story. It's a story that asks this question can companies and the people who work for them be held responsible, even sent to prison for failing to adequately prepare for climate change, you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Becky, take us back to the beginning of this story. So it's a story that happened in twenty seventeen at a chemical plant near Houston Texas, and it's when this major hurricane struck. We are coming on the air for breaking news. This is Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Harvey barreling into the Texas coastline as a category four storm with one hundred and thirty mile an hour winds. It's yeah, I remember. Hervey was kind of unique because it made landfall and then it just kind of stopped and sat on top of Texas, just dumping and Dumping Rain. Some places got as much as sixty inches of rain. There was a lot of flooding obviously, our primary layer of protection was our power supply. When the storm hit we lost our primary power. You're hearing a guy who is a division president at one of those petrochemical companies that was overwhelmed by the flooding. His name is Richard. Rendered the company he helped run it's called Arkham. We brought in emergency generators to provide backup power. So what he's describing his in the aftermath of the storm, those generators were compromised. There's this intense effort to keep the power on at the Arkansas plant outside Houston. The plant is near a major highway. It's in a relatively residential area. So why were they fighting so hard to keep the power on basically because the plant was full of chemicals that have to be refrigerated Otherwise they catch fire. We do have that breaking news that we've been bringing you throughout the five o'clock hour this brand new explosion and a fire burning. As we speak the Arkham plant in Crosby, you can see that plume of black smoke billowing into the air. In fact, you can see it for miles and miles away. So they make organic peroxides which are. Volatile Chemicals, they're used to manufacture plastics and other stuff and organic rock sides are pretty hazardous because they can catch fire if they get warm right and they don't even need a spark, right. So organic peroxides contain both fuel and oxygen and when they become unstable, they heat up on their own and catch fire. Yeah. I can really hear that PhD coming through. So the Arima plant, it had a lot of refrigerated warehouses and buildings to keep these chemicals cold, and they also have a bunch of refrigerated trailers outside those warehouses. Okay. So talk me through it. What happened that resulted in the accident so harvey was stalled over the Houston area, just dumping rain for days and the refrigerated warehouses, the buildings they were flooding as the warehouses flooded. The employees were using forklifts to move containers of these chemicals from one refrigerated warehouse to another to try to keep them dry and cool, and the water just kept getting higher and higher and the electrical generators for the buildings started. Flood that's not good and then the forklift flooded. Okay. So would you do when you're forklift floods? So according to the US chemical, Safety Board investigation employees at the plant started carrying individual jugs of these highly flammable liquids in the dark my chest high water while it was still raining to get it to the refrigerated trailers we talked about because only the trailer still had power. Yeah. I read this report and it was terrifying like I can't imagine being one of those people still there as they're in like deep water trying to move these chemicals at one point, one of the trailer started to turn over. On their side. It was really like super scary. Yeah and you might be able to guess what happens next the trailers flooded they weren't refrigerated anymore the chemicals got warmer and warmer until they caught fire. So did people get hurt when the fire started in the plant? Well, the plant had been evacuated. So the employees were okay that we know of but there were some first responders who say they were injured while they were patrolling the area that had been evacuated specifically that there is and respiratory tracts were urinated by air contamination and there were some people who live nearby who also say they were injured. By the smoke and the ash from the fires. So we knew the chemicals themselves can be toxic was the smoke from them toxic as well. That's a good question. So when the chemicals burned, they actually just turned into carbon dioxide and water, but I talked to multiple organic chemists and they explained that the problem is actually the containers that were being burned a chemist at Bryn Mawr. College Name Michelle Francis explained it this way everything from the labels on things to whatever plastic or metal that the containers are made out of all that stuff is GonNa absorb other chemicals that didn't burn entirely. So the ashes nasty. The ashes nasty so that ash is made up of container junk and chemicals that didn't totally burn. That's the stuff that potentially could have harmed the first responders and the people close by and it's not something you ideally want in the air or water right so much. So that in two thousand, eighteen, the district attorney's Office for Harris County Texas announced criminal charges against the plant manager who was actually one of the people carrying those chemicals through the water. And Armas North American CEO, and later they also filed charges against a third person and executive at the company which was really surprising to a lot of people because in general, the criminal courts aren't used to punish companies in their employees for polluting the air and water especially when it happens during big storms and I went down to Houston interviewed the district attorney about it. Her name is Kim Og-. The. Charges are environmental. They are reckless emission of an air contaminant and endangerment of persons. Reckless emissions of an air contaminant feels like a bunch of words that be polluting lawyers like. Big Words. So why did she say she was filing these charges you mentioned that there were a lot of petrochemical plants around Houston that flooded and leak stuff during Hurricane Harvey is there something about these fires that was worse? Yeah I asked her that and one argument she made is that the fires happened because people at Arkham ignored the risk of flooding like they should have known that their plant could flood like that and prepared better. For example, the plant is in a flood plain and even though Harvey dumped more rain than any US storm on record the argument the county is making. Is that there were signs that flood risk was increasing before harvey because of Climate Change we've had new normal in Houston. We've had three five hundred year floods in just a short period of time, and it's true that flooding is getting more frequent and severe in. Houston as it is in many parts of the country and something climate models have been predicting for a long time that extreme rain will get more likely as earth hotter including rain from hurricanes. So in this case, the county is basically arguing that the company had a responsibility to recognize that flood risk was increasing and do. More to keep their chemicals from catching fire. So obviously, the company doesn't agree or they wouldn't be in the middle of a trial right now what is the company say? So after the indictments for announced, I interviewed two of the layers representing Komo and its employees. One of them is pretty well known in Houston been working for a really long time. His name is Rusty Harden Arkham did everything they were supposed to do here hardened says the company followed all the regulations it's required to follow. He seemed pretty galled that employees were facing criminal charges trying to find scapegoats and calling individuals felons. Are you kidding me this is outrageous. It's morally legally ethically wrong and the point he made is that if the current regulations for chemical companies in flood prone areas aren't enough. Then the regulations should be changed by legislatures not by courts and especially he argues by criminal courts sometimes bad things happen that there's no crime. There's no responsibility is not anyone's fault we need to look forward to. The future and make sure that we are prepared for these kinds of things if this is going to be the new norm in many think it is. Okay. So becky, like what is at stake in this trial if the county wins and the company loses will that change how we think about climate change in the law it could actually yeah, I talked to this Guy David Omen he's. A law professor at the University of Michigan, and one thing he said that I think is really interesting is that environmental laws and regulations are generally based on this underlying assumption that the future will look like the past today. Already, we expect companies to be prepared to handle what I might call ordinary rainfall. What climate change is going to do among other things is change our definition of what is ordinary rainfall. Another way to understand it in a legal context is that you can be held accountable and punished. If you don't prepare for something, you should have seen coming. It's the idea of foreseeability so. Like if you know that climate change is happening, does that mean it's foreseeable and you should prepare for it yet that's the big question exactly and how foreseeable extreme weather is hinges in part on how businesses inform themselves about the climate science that's available to them, right? Yeah. Like I talked to an environmental lawyer at the Conservation Law Foundation Alina Mehalle that foreseeability isn't just a question of did you personally know that this could happen but it's really what kind of maps were available to you. What kind of experts did you hire to inform yourself about this decision? What kind of modeling

Does TV Resolution Matter?

Does TV Resolution Matter?

"When we're talking about TV, we're talking about one big thing. Resolution Sharper Images, Crisper Action, immaculate detail in everything from sports to documentaries to video games in just a few years. We've seen the race move from seven twenty to ten eighty P, two four K. and beyond, and this brings us to today's question. Does TV resolution matter spoiler alert? The answer is yes absolutely or maybe a better way to say it is yes, absolutely, but with a footnote before we get to all the weird stuff that footnote represents. Represents! We need to understand resolution itself. Resolution starts with the Pixel. A Pixel is the smallest possible unit of a digital image, a single point of light when you hear manufacturers top about resolution there, describing the number of pixels on a given screen, so an old school cathode Ray, TV would display the equivalent of three hundred thousand pixels on screen while an HDTV could pack more than two million pixels into a screen. The STANDARD WAY FOR TV makers to classify resolution is with numbers followed by a letter. The numbers indicate the. The rows of horizontal pixels so think four eighty, I ten eighty P, and so on the bigger the number, the more pixels on the screen, the letters at the end of the numbers stand for I is interlaced and P for Progressive Scan. The differences are important, but fairly complicated, so let's save that one for another day. Using more pixels to create an image creates a smoother, less blocking or pixelated image, so at first glance it sounds as if more pixels equal a better experience, right not so fast slick. Here's where our footnote. Footnote comes in Pixel. Density itself is not the only factor in the race toward a better sharper image. If we're looking at resolution as the ability to discern fine details, several other factors come into play for instance. What's the source of the image? What role does color play? How close or far are you from the screen? And how big is the screen for example? If you're watching a small screen, say twenty six inches from ten or more feet away. Your I won't be able to tell the difference between anything from four. Four eighty two four K., the farther you are away from the image source, the smoother the picture appears as for the size of the screen. Well sure you could have a twenty six inch TV with ten eighty line resolution, and it would still have the same number of pixels as a fifty five inch, TV with otherwise identical specs, but the pixels would be physically smaller so in this context size definitely matters if you put a twenty six inch HDTV with seven twenty line resolution next to another twenty six inch HDTV with ten. Ten Eighty, you may not be able to tell the difference between the two. These are just a few of the pertinent factors in the overall equation. There's another big question here to does the human I have a resolution limit. How many individual pixels can the human I perceive? And that's a tricky question to our eyes are not cameras, instead their an initial step to an intricate process, involving loads of unconscious estimation and guesswork in our brains. It is true that after a certain point, the human eye is unable to differentiate or Or appreciate the differences between some Pixel densities with the right source material equipment and viewing distance four K. really can make a difference for example if you're sitting a few feet from a sixty inch four K. television with an ultra high definition video feed, you'll be able to tell if it suddenly switches to regular hd or brace yourself standard definition, the limits of HDTV a failure of technology. There are limit of our biology, if we can't tell the difference between a lower resolution, twenty six inch TV in an HD version then. Then! There's not much incentive to buy the latest ultra high definition TV set, but this isn't the end of the story. The race for higher resolution continues cameras that shooting four K. have already become the norm and each year bring new innovations. These ultra high definition technologies may not make for a better picture on a home television, but in a movie theater it makes a big difference in the future. We might not care as much about resolution. It's possible that other technologies like high dynamic range may become the next big thing.

I'm in Walker Minnesota at an annual meeting of rivers and lakes advocates and lakeshore. Homeowners associations and one thing they're seeing is the data is clear. Minnesota is getting wetter overall and as our climate shifts. That's presenting challenges for these folks. Jeff Forrester is the executive director of Minnesota lakes and rivers advocates. Well, I hear from people across the state and, you know, obviously water levels are changing, you know, some areas dryer. So there's drought other areas are over the shoreline and then we're also getting plants native plants there, didn't used to be plants people are saying, well, you know, we've got this northern mille-feuille which is native. And now it's growing right to the surface, and it's in places that never was before we can't get boats through my guess is that warmers having an impact, and then the cloudbursts events are flushing more nutrients cynical ex. And I'm just thinking, you know. No, it's really time to focus, some science, some energy on. What are the impacts going to be? How do we mitigate? How do we build resilience into our systems? The changes that we're seeing in the lakes. How much science is there in terms of linking that to climate? Well, my sense is, there's some, but there's not a great deal with agriculture. They've, you know, the farmers and farm groups have done a pretty good job of looking at the impacts on farms, and did oh with the timber industry and did o with people who deal with the infrastructure of our cities. But there hasn't been a real focused effort on what's going to happen to our lakes and rivers because there isn't the same kind of constituency. And that's really what this event is about is bringing in people who are focused on water and one part of the state one week or one, watershed and bring them together to kind of start talking about these larger issues. We we've seen a couple of recent records that have really jumped out at climate watchers with regard to precipitation, Minnesota, one was the, the twin cities record for all time annual precipitation of forty inches in two thousand sixteen. And then just last year, we had harmony that came in. With sixty inches of precipitation, that's the all time state record. That's closer to a New Orleans level average annual rainfall this spring. We're seeing many lakes, over Bank full are people noticing those changes on their local legs, people are definitely noticing, and I'm getting emails about it from across the state, and I think some are starting to connect the dots. Some maybe not so much. They're wondering what they can do about it. Because it's a climate impact and the climate is changing, and it's going to continue to change. That's why I'm thinking about resilience. What can we do to build resilience into the systems? What, what, what can we do to begin to manage our likes a in adaptive management holistic way, rather than just focusing on the walleye while we're gonna stock while focus on we? It's all well we're going to treat the weights here. We're going to do this, or that, discreet activity isn't going to get us. What we need. We need kind of a bigger vision. That's climate cast from Walker. Minnesota at a water conference. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hutton there.

"I'm so glad to made it on your radio station. Okay. I have a quick question. I have a yearly blueberry kit. Well, it's actually been living for about two years. But it's this year has put him down. It's about sixty inches maybe seven inches. I'm so scared. I it come out from my possibly, very big. Something's going to happen to it. Because he's no longer with it. Yeah. I really love that little bitty. So we'll do I need today. How tall you say? It was sandy beach. Sanchez may. Yes about six inches. Wow. And what are you worried about as far as cold weather night or something like that? Tonight. I'm scared to pick dishes the first year that actually has two little blames on it. So I'm scared that something that's gonna get killed. Do I need to cover it up. I don't think so the severe weather chances of being down into the twenties, which is when you start worrying about blueberry flowers. Or not real high right now because the temperatures, you know, Tamargo mid fifties and sixties ninety. Okay. So that wouldn't worry about it. All the one thing that I advise you it's gonna break your heart. Right. This minute. Yes. You really ought to take those flowers off. Okay. So paste a little blames out there. The reason do that is because you want the blueberry to make more energy into making routes, which is what it needs when it's young and not making fruit. Although I know you wanna have a blue very from your papa's liver plant, you better off better off to take the bluer blooms off until us well established at least a foot or two tall. Which would be in the end of the summer. I would think. Little bit. Every once in a while you can use Zali camelia fertilizer works fine. But every once in a while in summertime, and when it gets big enough to have good flowers next spring, lots of blueberries to enjoy. Well, he is eight got three of them on the property, and they already put I'm fine. They're just they're they're actually a little taller than me. This little cat. And I got it. Like, I said a few years back when he passed, and I went up there and got me two or three a off. But only one so bad. I'm so excited. It's got so many green leaves on it. But it's not like I say about six inches that I do not want it to die. So you're saying go in peace. And I should be okay. One more thing. Sandy. Yes. The heartbreaker growing blueberries or a lot of Woody plants is not is not cold. It's rabbits and deer. Pretend to get some chicken wire or something to go over the top that little bitty blueberry plant and protected from the animals in the landscape, which may be more damaging anything else you'd you'd have. So protective. And I do have a lot of their every morning. I say at least six seven out here in the fields. So yes, okay. And they will get my little baby. Just man they will you put a couple do that. The Irish every day for as long as I can remember, and it was a pleasure talking. Maybe. Thank you. My pleasure as well.

"The ninety day Sailer health transformation. It's not a diet pill. It's not a hormone. It's not the gym. It's not shakes. It is not special foods. It's not a lettuce. Not a scam. Does not gimmicks, and you can ask Doreen. She's our client at the health dare she has lost sixty inches by doing the health dare. And she's fifty eight years old, and we're talking about motivation. It can't be based on a negative outward approach of competing with other women around you it has to be that inward. Quiet decision that I am worth it. And that's what Doreen did. And so she's talking to us today. Now, we're not talking about. We don't care. What you look like at the health dare we care how you feel you. However, you are not able to fit in pants that you were not able to tell us about that. Well, I put on a pair of pants actually this morning that I bought probably five or six or seven years ago. When honestly I was about fifteen twenty pounds less than I am now. And I was in shock because I could get them on they fit and I could wear them here. And so that's just I had closed. I couldn't wear the clothes that I wore for five years now, I can get into those things that I bought way back when that I never thought I would get back into that's incredible. And you did say that you were very angry because you have a couple of pairs of heads that you bought a lot of money for a lot of money for a couple of pairs of pants. I managed to squeeze into one pair. I bought four pairs of them. I managed to squeeze in one pair once when I had to get dressed up for something at school. And I've been wearing those for years while I put those on earlier this this fall, and I thought well, maybe they're too big because they've been stretched too much. And then I went to go put on the other three pairs of pants, and I can't wear them because they're falling off literally advice stand up. They will fall off my hips. So you are literally having pants off. Disclaimer, you will have to spend money on a new wardrobe. You will have. Nari or you can get into this class that you've been holding onto for the last five or six years and get into those. And that's a great. Yes. That's a good way to look at it. Yeah. So the the the wardrobe that we all have in the attic. And they all come back in style. Every every now every twenty years now. Seventies flares going on. Yeah. So.

"Great at a bikini. I still have cellulite, and I'm okay to say that on the radio, but I jump out of bed every single morning. My. Energy levels are amazing. I feel like I'm at DisneyWorld every day. And that's what cellular health is all about. There's two kinds of fat. There's subcutaneous fat. And that's what I mentioned cellulite. That's the surface fat that we really work on looking good about. But that visceral fat is that internal belly fat. And that's really what we care about that kind of controls your medical chart with a lot of the symptoms that we see with the health dare. But but back to two to the motivation. I love what you said Doreen about how so many other programs that you did you did try to fit into a certain size or certain article of clothing when you did the health dare you did it because you wanted to feel good. And you want to be there for your children. You have two sons. Right. You sounds. Okay. Twenty-seven and fifteen years mass, right? Okay. And you're fifty eight years old. So you know, you are wanting to set yourself up for quality of life for longevity of life to be there for your grandchildren, and all of those things, and so many people. Are motivated by self degradation or comparison to others, but they need to be motivated by self worth. And you decided Doreen that you were important enough to come in book that consultation put our team to work for you put in the time put in the effort put in the money to take care of yourself. Yes, you were worth it. And that's the number one thing because so many women at your age right in that fifty to sixty bracket so many of them live their lives like a totem pole. And that's why they're unhealthy. They've got their husband at the top there. Well, no, let's let's see the grand kids. The grandkids are at the top. Then you have your kids sometimes adult children living with you supporting them financially. Then you've got your husband. You've got your boss. Usually for middle aged women. There's a few pets as well. You're down at the bottom free. And when you walk into the health dare, we say, you are important let our team make you are number one. And teach you that you are worth it. And that you need to put yourself first. Because what happens if you can't take care of yourself? You can't take care of anybody. That's right. It's just like the oxygen on an airplane. You're going down you're crashing on an airplane, and they dropped the oxygen masks. Who's the first person you have to put one on on your cell on yourself? That's right. And so as as we're learning these issues of self worth and self importance. I think it's so amazing the difference in your program. This time was actually doing it for you. It was for me. That's right. And tell us again the results that you had incredible after after ninety days, it was thirty pounds and fifty two inches, and I'll tell you thirty days later, I lost another eight inches size down to sixty inches. So even not getting back to the way, I still fit into the clothes and Doreen has not even been able to exercise because of bad.

"The days are getting longer hours a day light sadness is starting to lift. Glad to hear it. So Mike right now as we look across the country much America is under snow but much is not. So let's start with those that are not if I'm down in the sunshine state in January. What should I be thinking about if I really want to ramp up my homes, curb appeal really shouldn't have to do much? The lawns are going to be green. You know, if you got palm trees, they're going to be working Basque, if you're really down below the frost line, you've probably got citrus outside like lemons and lives there would be in flower and fruit. So, you know, make sure you walk them around to the back yard and give them. Some lemons did take that will sell it right there. That's great advice. Now, I know that some southern lawns. Go dormant in winter and turn tan, what do you think should you oversee to green it up or just let it be? I just have to explain to them guided soy grass Bermuda grass. And it goes dormant over the winter either or spray painted. Which I've heard they do in some really hot sunshine states in southern California during extended drought back in the nineties every garden center was selling quote lawn. That's amazing. So Mike how about the shrubs and the trees and the flowers in my place, if I'm again down on a sunshine state. How do I really make my place? Pop. Just make sure will warn is. Inaccurate sweep. It was one of those long vacuums getting tweeden's any Gabriella saw make sure it looks nice and clean. It's well edged. And then just using Brunner's just g. We shape a couple of shrubs that look like they've got a brain sticking out in the wrong spot. Don't go. Guy. The guy won't go out there just to do a little bit of cleaning up. And then all of a sudden what looked like a perfectly good shrub is now still. So. It's better to do a little dated. It's all right. Interesting. So Mike now, let's shift our attention up to the true, snow states. Now, sure if your property is covered in one or two feet of snow. It can look really beautiful. But what about during a winter thaw, all the snow is now gone and your lawn your trees, your shrubs, your flower beds? Look all beat up. What about that? Especially this year, the mid Atlantic the northeast stage, many parts of the country had record amounts of rain. I think where I live in the league is valley. I think we went over sixty inches of rain, which is insane. And it most of it came down, and really damaging burst. So yeah, if you don't have snow your landscape looks pretty poor. I would go to the nearest steam resort in their snow making machine. Get out on Isla in just the best. She can that's awesome. Well, Mike, great advice. And I really appreciate you. Joining us today and talking about winter curb appeal. Thank you, always a pleasure anybody Mike mcgraff, host of the nationally syndicated public radio show. You bet.
