High Winds and Mayhem in Greenwich

Several night ago the Greenwich area was hit by an intense windstorm. It also included a rare thunder and lightning storm -rare for the month of February. 

News reports revealed that 4600 customers in Greenwich alone were without power.

I went to the family burying ground in Cos Cob to check for damage. I was pleased to find only twigs and a few branches littering the grounds.

But at the entrance off Relay Place in Cos Cob it was not so good. The neighbors erected a brand new fence last year. The winds were so strong and intense that a support pole snapped as pictured here.
