Piling On

Former Bridgeport mayor Jasper McLevy once said: “God put the snow there. Let him take it away.”

Fortunately, Westport has a fantastic public works crew that manages to clear roads quickly and efficiently, then cart all the snow off to — well, God knows where.

So, looking at this photo just sent by alert “06880” reader Scott Smith —

Snow on Main Street

— the question is: Which snow will disappear first? This pile, or the ones on the sidewalks?

I bet this one.

Mystery Trees

Recently, 4 trees in Parker Harder Plaza were tagged like this:

Parker Harding trees

The thing is, no one in an official capacity knows why.

Public Works didn’t do it. Neither did the tree warden.

It’s not the legal, we’re-planning-to-chop-this-tree-down tape.

And it doesn’t seem to be welcome-home-from-12-years-in-captivity tape either.

If any alert “06880” readers have a clue, hit “Comments.”

After last fall’s mysterious Paul Bunyan number on several Main Street trees, plenty of Westporters want to know.
