The nor'easter that dumped several inches of snow and ice on Westport and the rest of southwestern Connecticut on Wednesday tied traffic in knots during the evening commute, but failed to trigger the widespread damage that Hurricane Sandy inflicted on the region last week.

Despite powerful wind gusts, few power outages were reported and the storm surges during high-tide periods did not trigger the kind of coastal flooding that devastated shoreline communities during Sandy.

After the storm clears out, gradual clearing was forecast Thursday and sunny, warmer temperatures on tap for the weekend.
