The Chirurgeon's Apprentice

For #InternationalWomensDay: this is the DEATH MASK of a young woman who drowned in the River Seine in the 1880s. As was customary in those days, her corpse was put on display in the Paris mortuary, in the hope that someone might recognize her and claim her body. The pathologist on duty became entranced by the girl with the enigmatic half-smile, and so he commissioned a plaster cast made of her face. This mask was replicated many times over. She became known as "L'Inconnue de la Seine,” or “The Unknown Woman of the Seine.” In 1955, a toymaker named Asmund Laerdal created what we now know as the CPR doll. Asmund wanted his mannequin to have a natural appearance. Remembering a mask on the wall of his grandparents' house many years earlier, he decided that the L'Inconnue de la Seine would become the face of Resusci Anne. So you see, this anonymous woman who drowned in the 19th century is responsible for saving many, many lives the world over. It is said that she has the most kissed face of all time. I hope you enjoyed this little #histmed tale!

Governor Murphy Declares State of Emergency

TRENTON – Today, Governor Phil Murphy declared that New Jersey will enter a state of emergency beginning Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 5:00 a.m. ahead of the anticipated winter storm. The storm is expected to start tomorrow and continue throughout the day. Executive Order No. 57 declares a state of emergency across all 21 counties in New Jersey, allowing resources to be deployed throughout the state during the duration of the storm.

“As a winter storm is expected to impact our State, we are urging residents of New Jersey to drive with caution and use their best judgment during this time,” said Governor Murphy. “We are actively monitoring the storm and are prepared to deploy any resources available to ensure the safety of the roads.”

New Jersey is expected to experience several inches of snow that may transition to freezing rain.

To prepare for the winter storm, the New Jersey State Police will activate the State Emergency Operations Center on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 5:00 a.m. in order to monitor the storm. The New Jersey Department of Transportation will also deploy more than 2,500 plows and spreaders to keep roads and communities safe.

The Governor encourages New Jerseyans to visit ready.nj.gov for important weather updates and safety information. New Jersey residents should also pay attention to local forecasts, warnings, and watches.

We are continuing to monitor hurricane Jose which looks like it's going to stay out to sea. The outer most edge will reach us tonight through Wednesday. The National Weather Service is expecting the following for our area:

- Flooding - roadway flooding is expected due to the possibility of locally heavy rain. Coastal flooding is expected to occur during times of high tide.

- Wind - coastal areas are expected to experience minor wind conditions. This may effect smaller or dead trees and power lines.

- Surf conditions - a heavy surf with strong rip currents are expected until Jose dissipates.

- Rain - rain is expected to be constant and heavy at times. This may lead to localized flash flooding and could worsen tidal flooding along coastal areas.

What does this mean for you???

If you encounter flooding remember...turn around, don't drown. You don't how deep the water may be or what lies beneath the water.

If the storm does bring down power wires...do not approach or attempt to touch them. Live power wires WILL kill you. If you believe that the wire(s) may be live power wires, call the local police department and then the power company.

Stay out of the the water until the storm passes. There is no reason to be in the surf for any reason during this time. The extreme conditions in and around the surf is extremely dangerous.

Stay safe.

We are currently watching hurricane Jose which is working his way up the coast. Though it is not expected to make landfall in our area we encourage every to watch the weather. We are currently in a tropical storm watch and we are expected to experience winds of approximately 30-35 mph and 3-5 inches of rain over the next few days. Please remember to have a kit and a plan ready in the event of worsening wether or a change in trajectory by Jose. Please keep an eye on our page and the Old Bridge Township website for updates as they become available. Above all everyone be safe!
