The Nor’easter Missed Us. Still…

We avoided torrential rain. The 50-mph wind gusts never came.

Still, Westport did not escape today’s rains. And — with the moon nearly full — floods were reported all over town.

This is the new normal.

Additional flooding was reported at Wilton Road and Post Road West; Imperial Avenue near Baker Avenue, and Harbor and Canal Roads on Saugatuck Shores.

Tomorrow should be partly cloudy, with a high near 55. Winds will be 5-10 mph.

Pretty In Pink

Sand and salt from storms like Irene and Sandy had Westporters wondering whether the beauty of the beach was irreparably harmed.

The answer is a resounding “no!”

Bradley Street (Westport CT)

This was the scene yesterday, on Bradley Street just a block from Compo.

Of course, spring in Westport does not last long.

Today, the blossoms might already be gone.
