Sunday in New Canaan: Clear Skies, Light Wind, Sledding

New Canaan came through the winter storm remarkably well, with just one notable accident that knocked out power for a few hundred homes Friday.

 

After the nightmarish aftermaths of Irene, Snowtober and Sandy, when outages lingered and dozens of roads closed for days, New Canaan survived the winter storm some were calling 'Nemo' remarkably well, officials said.

Led by Mose Saccary, the town's veteran road crew did its work, businesses and organizations closed for part of the weekend and officials such as Fire Marshal Fred Baker and Emergency Management Director Mike Handler stood by at the ready.

First Selectman Rob Mallozzi said: "I’m really happy that we didn't have the massive power outages and the storm wasn't as damaging as we've seen in the past."

Surely, families will be sledding at Waveny today as New Canaan residents shake off cabin fever and the aches of shoveling. Here's a snapshot of some other things to do around town. Got something else you want us to feature here? Post an event and let us know about it in the comments thread.

yea, I was the one affected/effected by that "accident" I hope the guy was OK. But, as revenge I hope his car got totalled. Stinks being w/o power because a "person" was driving TOO FAST for conditions and wanted to inconvenience ME...Well, He did CLP did a great job in getting power going inspite of the unfair raging storm that the NWS decided to give US and only US.
