Slush Puppy

Westport was spared the snow, ice and wind that’s buffeting much of the rest of the country.

All we’ve gotten is light rain, and slush. This was the scene at otherwise empty Winslow Park this morning:

But we did not escape today’s weather unscathed.

As happens more and more often, there’s flooding all around town. Some are places that flood often; some are spots we seldom worry about.

Grove Point — off Hillspoint — saw waters high enough from Sherwood Mill Pond to close the road. Here’s the view:

Standing water is everywhere. Be careful out there!

  1. Hi,

    You must be also be a Carl Hiaasen fan! I just laughed out loud when I saw this title, as all I could think of was Jimmy Stoma and the Slut Puppies in Basket Case. Just what I needed on this grey day. Thanks, Dan. Lynn
