Follow those blizzard gusts with the Fishermen


If you wake up wondering how strong that window rattling gust was in the middle of this weekend's blizzard, the Westport Fishermen's Association has the answer.

The Association recently installed a weather station at their Horseneck Lifesaving Station museum on the beach in Westport. A live link to the equipment gives readings for temperature, wind speed, precipitation and much more.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
