Back in the day, patriots guarded the beach.

These days, that job is for the birds.

And Snow It Goes

It’s been snowing steadily since mid-morning.

The forecast calls for continued snow through most of the afternoon and evening. There could be a change to rain and/or a wintry mix later. Winds may gust up to 50 miles an hour.

Isn’t it so much better to be stuck inside because of a blizzard, instead of stuck inside by COVID?

Happy Birthday, Finding Westport!

Finding Westport turns 2 years old today. The website for local businesses and services — which includes a comprehensive what’s-up list during the pandemic — is the brainchild of Jillian Elder.

Yesterday she ran around town celebrating. She brought a pineapple — hey, why not? — and visited businesses and other sites, hoping her photos would bring smiles.

She’ll post the shots on social media throughout today. Here’s a preview.
