Fore?!

The Longshore golf course was supposed to open today.

Not gonna happen.

This photo of the Longshore golf course was actually taken on February 18. The scene today does not look much different. Except that the sun is not out. And it’s still snowing. (Photo/Larry Untermeyer)

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Westport, this was the scene the day after April Fool’s Day:

Snow Scenes

Nearly everyone in Westport is gone. It’s a holiday weekend, and the start of the schools’ winter break.

For the few folks left in town, yesterday’s snowfall was perfect. A few inches of heavy white stuff fell at night. There was little traffic, no major events to disrupt.

When we woke up this morning, the storm had moved on. The sun was bright, the snow already melting.

It was beautiful — and, hopefully, fleeting. By midweek, temperatures are expected to hit 65.

So how are things in Cabo, Antigua, or wherever else you all are today?

Saying Goodbye To 2017

The final day of the year dawned bright, bone-chillingly cold, and with a fresh dusting of snow on the ground.

Alert “06880” photographer Larry Untermeyer grabbed his camera, and headed around town to record these scenes.

We don’t know what the new year will bring. But Larry brings us these reminders that on a winter Sunday in Westport, some things never change.
