Even More Sandy Stuff I’m Finally Able To Get To

I’m still plowing through emails. Here’s a sampling. Apologies if I haven’t posted yours yet. Keep ’em comin’!

Some of the more than 75 Staples students who showed up at Longshore today, an hour after receiving a call from principal John Dodig for cleanup help. Another work session is planned for Friday.

  • The Farmers’ Market will be open tomorrow (Thursday) in the Imperial Avenue parking lot.  There’s hot coffee, fresh food and WiFi. They’ll also collect food and coats for those in need.
  • The Westport Country Playhouse is open again Thursday (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) for cell phone and laptop charging.  Free coffee, too!
  •  Johanna Rossi passes along the website for CTWatchdog.com, with free legal advice on insurance for victims of Hurricane Sandy. “I don’t want to see fellow Westporters taken advantage of, especially senior citizens,” she says.

Coffee An’ opened at 6:30 a.m., and did a booming business all day. The power may be out in many homes, but we all need our donuts. (Photo/Larry Perlstein)

At Compo Sandy flooded streets, deposited sand everywhere, and knocked over cement cookout grills. But she couldn’t defeat the cannons. As they’ve done ever since the Revolutionary War (well, 1909 — they’re replicas) — the Compo cannons never wavered. (Photo/Jeb Backus)

Of course, some things never change. Arlene Avellanet reported that Arby’s was open. As usual, no one was there.
