Pics Of The Day #686

It wasn’t the biggest snowfall. It shouldn’t have caused as many power outages as it did.

But it sure was pretty.

Here are some scenes, captured around Westport by alert “06880” photographers.

And now — okay. It’s March. We’re ready for some spring shots!

    REMINDS ME OF THE 1950 AND 1970 SNOW STORMS WHEN I RENTED A COTTAGE AT 96 SO,COMPO FROM DR. WILLIAM PHILIP TEUSCHER SET WAY BACK, FROM THE ROAD, I USED TO SHOVEL SNOW UP TO MY WAIST ALL THE WAY TO SO COMPO AND WALK DOWN TOWN TO MY OFFICE AT 35 CHURCH LANE, THE GUNN HOUSE WHICH DAVID WALDMAN PURCHASED AND MOVED ACROSS ELM STREET TO THE BALDWIN PARKING LOT. THE BUILDING IS NOW LEASED TO SERENA AND LILLY.

    Beautiful!

  3. Dan. One of the finest things about 06880 is your talent as a photo curator. Who knew that you had this in your skill set? But you do. And I think you for it. These “Winter Wonderland” shots of our hometown are simply gorgeous. Oh. And happy anniversary, 06880!!

    Beautiful pictures. I lived in Westport from Jan. 1967 to Oct. 1968, and again a few months early 1969, when I moved to NYC. I came to Westport as an au pair from Denmark, and as such was no stranger to snow, although it might surprise many that Ct and NY usually get more snow than Denmark, we get a lot of cold, wet sleet. I now live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and this winter we have had a lot of rain, I miss snow, even though it is nice to not have to drive in it, or shovel it. Looking at these pictures I wish I could take a walk around Westport in the serene quietness of the snow, orsame back in my native Denmark. I do go up to the Sierra Nevada’s mountain (Lake Tahoe) often to cross country ski, but I have not been the last few years. However, there is something special of just being able to walk out of your house and take a walk in the snow, instead of having to drive 3-4 hours, and plan weeks in advance.
