Blizzard Of 2016: Noon Report

Here’s how Westport looked a few minutes ago. Most of us — except those with water in our yards — seem to be doing okay.

As always, click on or hover over photos to enlarge. And let us know what’s happening in your neck of the snowy woods.

Water seeps into Kendall Gardiner's back yard. But the view across Sherwood Mill Pond is magnificent.

A tag sale at 24 Ferry Lane East had few visitors. It's been extended to tomorrow. But hey -- items are available for all seasons! (Photo/Alison Fisher)

Blizzard bonus: Jeff Scher created this video about (of course) snow. Much of the film is based on footage he shot in Westport in the 1970s and ’80s — especially at Longshore, when the skating rink was next to the inn. The wide shot was Round Pond Road in the late 1960s. Get your hot chocolate, and enjoy!

    Not sure I’m seeing what’s described. I’m seeing very cool animated film.
