Norwalk has gotten hit by three nor’easters in the past ten days. The first was only rain and wind, but still left many in the community without power, floods, fallen trees and cables.
The second nor’easter was primarily wind and snow, yet again leaving a lot more without electricity and fallen trees, but also causing them to leave their homes and look for shelter. Around one third of Norwalk lost power and approximately thirty-one roads were closed due to this storm. While the third was not as serious for Norwalk.
During the first nor’easter, McMahon had been opened up as a shelter by the American Red Cross for those without power.
Many students, especially seniors, have been upset with the unnecessary missed school days and just want to get out and graduate.
“We don’t need more snow days, because we need to graduate early”- Josefa Herrera (‘18)
As seniors grudgingly pass through the days, it seems like spring is not coming. Winter makes its presence known during the month of March.
Yet another storm is expected to hit the tri-state area next week. It is unknown what the qualities of this fourth nor’easter will be, but as you can imagine, seniors and some underclassmen are not liking what this means for the last day of school.
It seems the last day will still be in June, but most likely towards the end.
