We’ve still got a few more hours of this. So put another log on the fire, open up one more bottle of wine, and enjoy these wonderful views of Westport in winter. (Click on or hover over to enlarge)

  1. Is it just me, or did Snow Bunny #2 take a few moments to decipher?

    Metro North actually had excellent service earlier today until they announced it was being shut down around 4:00 pm today. My daughter came back from NYC on it and the trains going into NYC while I was there were on time.

  3. Nancy Powers Conklin

    Those are some decent waves for Compo.

  4. Spoken like a true surfer, Nancy! I was thinking the same thing. I tried to body-surf some of that rough Compo chop a few years ago during a storm; it wasn’t too satisfying.

  5. All roads bridges, tunnels and public trans including Metro North are CLOSED in NYC therefore ….us?
