Saying Goodbye To The Blizzard

New York City nearly set a record: 26.8 inches, the 2nd biggest snowfall since 1869.

We got substantially less — but still over a foot. The winds were not as strong as predicted, and the snow fell on a Saturday, disrupting far fewer commutes than a weekday.

As we get ready to dig (or pay the plow guys), here are 2 final images to remember the Blizzard of 2016:

Wondrous Westport

Definitely, the forsythia look fantastic. For sure, the cherry blossoms are spectacular.

But it’s not only flowers and trees that make a Westport spring so special.

Yesterday — near Indian River Green, just south of the train station on Saugatuck Avenue — alert “06880” reader Scott Singer spotted a couple of beautiful birds.

“A seemingly boring little pond by the side of the road has turned into an Audubon Society member’s dream (I am not one, but I own one of their books),” he writes.

“The amazing treasures of Westport are all around, if we simply take a moment to look closely.”
