Weather Service Warns of Icy Conditions

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y., has issued a special weather statement warning of icy road dangers for Westport and area tonight.

An advisory said residual moisture left from Thursday’s precipitation and today’s snow melt will freeze on roads as temperatures fall below freezing with light winds.

Conditions will improve late tonight as winds increase toward morning, the statement said. Motorists should prepare for icy conditions. Bridges and overpasses are especially vulnerable.

Allow extra time to reach your destination. Allow for extra stopping distance. Check braking conditions frequently and use low speeds appropriate for icy conditions, the statement said.

Unhappy New Year for Westport Food Network Fans

Westport Cablevision subscribers tuning into the Food Network channel today were greeted by an announcement saying the service is no longer available.  WestportNow.com Image

The New York Times reported that the owner of the Food Network and HGTV, Scripps Networks, removed its channels from Cablevision’s lineups today, a consequence of a breakdown in talks between those two parties.”

“Viewers love our talent and our shows, which is why Food Network and HGTV rank among the top networks in cable,” Kenneth W. Lowe, the chief executive of Scripps Networks Interactive, said in a statement.

“But our valuable networks simply are not being compensated like top 10 networks by Cablevision. The distribution rates Cablevision pays for Food and HGTV are among the lowest in the industry.”
