Yes, it really is April 2.
Most of us stayed inside today, waiting for the nor’easter.
It arrived. As of 7:30 pm, over 1500 Westport customers were without power. Including yours truly. With many trees down, this could be a long restoration.
Earlier today, when it was quieter — and prettier — Betsy P. Kahn roamed around town. Camera in hand, she captured these beautiful scenes:
Heavy rain, high winds, a full moon and high tides made for a messy Westport this morning.
Be prepared for more this afternoon.
Westport schools are closing 2 hours early. Stay safe and dry!
i thought last week’s photo challenge would be hard — perhaps impossible.
I’m an idiot.
The moment Ben Berkley’s image was posted, guesses flew in.
Every one was correct. The shot indeed showed an aerial view of Compo Beach’s Ned Dimes Marina. It’s empty, of course, at this time of year — but alert “06880” readers don’t need boats or a street view to know your town. (Click here to see.)
Congratulations to Tom Ryan, John D. McCarthy, Andrew Colabella, Tony Sauer, Seth Schachter, Matt Murray, Peggy O’Halloran, Rich Stein, Bobbie Herman, David Sampson, George Bory, Myra Skluth, Tom Wall, Rosalie Kaye, Seth Braunstein, Linda Amos, Brandon Malin, Jonathan McClure, Shirlee Gordon, Lawrence J. Zlatkin and Mary Ann Batsell.
Let’s see how you all do this week! I tried for a harder challenge. But with so many hotshots out there, all bets are off.

There’s a lot going on at Ned Dimes Marina. The first dredging project since 1993 is underway at Compo Beach. At the same time, a tugboat pulled up to the docks.
Just a couple of days before though, all was still.
