Trekking outside was not an easy task Wednesday, with snow and ice covering streets and roadways. But one area that was clear was the Wilton Veterans Memorial Green . Pat Dagostino, a member of the Wilton Parks and Grounds, made sure of it. He was decked out in layers of clothes, freezing rain pelting him as he shoveled the walkway.
Dagostino and other members of Parks and Grounds cleared the area not necessarily for people to check out the monuments, but so people could have access from the Piersall Building to many of the other shops in Wilton Center.
With another Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service, it looks as though Dagostino and company will be back out again Thursday. A total of 9 to 13 inches of snow is expected to accumulate by 6 a.m. Thursday with wind gusts ranging from 30 to 40 mph. The heavy overnight snow is expected to cause hazards in the early morning commute.
The Memorial Green was officially opened on Veterans Day in November. Its five granite monuments list the name of each Wiltonian to die in wars from the French and Indian War up to the War in Iraq.
