Nor’easter!

Heavy rain, high winds, a full moon and high tides made for a messy Westport this morning.

Be prepared for more this afternoon.

Westport schools are closing 2 hours early. Stay safe and dry!

    Thanks for the photos, Dan. Even though we are not there, we have family members who are and hope that they are out of harms way.

    Great snaps; thanks for sharing!
    Actually learned some names of places/bridges in the town where I was born and raised [and rode my bike all over] 72 years ago. We occasionally have weather here in north central Florida, so I can appreciate.
