Winter Storm Watch Does Not Include Westport

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for interior sections of southern Connecticut from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning, but the advisory does not include Westport and coastal Connecticut.

The advisory, which covers most of the rest of Connecticut, said to expect snow accumulation of 4 to 8 inches.

It said a mix of rain and snow Wednesday morning will change to all snow by late Wednesday. The snow will continue into early Thursday morning before tapering off to snow showers.

Meanwhile, forecaster Jacob Meisel, a 2012 Staples graduate, tweeted: “A period of heavy snow continues to look likely even down to the coast Wednesday afternoon/evening. Significant accumulations possible.”

WHS Exhibit Celebrates Saugatuck’s Proud Past

By James Lomuscio

Saugatuck, the once working class, mostly Italian-American section of Westport—the area state officials in the 1950s figured it would be easier to build the Connecticut Turnpike through rather than affluent Greens Farms—got its just deserts today. Image

At the opening of a Westport Historical Society’s (WHS) exhibition titled “Saugatuck @ Work—Haven of Community, Commerce and Innovation,” the neighborhood was revered not only as an important area of Westport, but as its matrix.

Kathleen Motes Bennewitz, Town Curator who organized the exhibit, was quick to remind the more than 100 persons in attendance “Saugatuck was Westport’s downtown before Westport was Westport.”

Before the town was incorporated in 1835, Westport was called Saugatuck and was a part of the towns of Fairfield and Norwalk.
