Snow covers Connecticut
On Thursday evening, weather reports predicted a little more than seven inches of snow would fall in Westport, Connecticut. Those weathermen were in for a shock.
Storm Nemo dropped a foot and a half of snow on Westport, a coastal Connecticut town.
Schools were open Friday morning, but suddenly the skies opened up. Thick snow rained down on the town. Students arrived at school through the treacherous conditions, but were soon notified that there would be early dismissal for the Westport Public Schools.
After school let out, kids took to the biggest hills they could find armed with their sleds. Everyone enjoyed shooting down the slopes with their friends. Friday night brought heavy winds, but Saturday morning the children were back at the town’s best sledding spots.
The 18 inches of snow were the most in two years. Most kids said that they spent the weekend sipping hot chocolate, skiing, sledding, and enjoying the snow.
