After The Deluge

Once again (and again and again), Westport is cleaning up from a strong storm.

Last night’s series of downpours did not deliver the devastation of previous rain and wind. A possible tornado thankfully never materialized.

Still, 42 customers remain without power this morning (down from a high of 650). A driver narrowly escaped tragedy when she was trapped on Wilton Road, after a tree tangled with wires crashed onto her car.

Here is a reminder of Mother Nature’s force …

It’s Not A Bird. It’s Not A Plane. It’s … ?

Alert — and uncertain — “06880” reader Lara Willis just sent this photo:

She took it at 12:10 this afternoon, in the parking lot behind Trader Joe’s.

Five minutes later, it was gone.

She’s pretty sure it’s not a rainbow. Hey: It didn’t rain.

Mother’s Day Rainbow

Throughout Westport a few minutes ago, we were treated to a spectacular rainbow.

Here are a few shots, courtesy of alert — and impressed — “06880” readers.

Who Saw That Double Rainbow?

Westporters enjoyed a rare — and beautiful — double rainbow yesterday afternoon:

But when an alert “06880” photographer snapped this shot, she was the only one who noticed. Everyone else was too busy chatting, or looking at their phones.
