Henry Street holds up during storm

As today’s storm pummeled Greenwich and the rest of the area, many hearty Greenwich residents ventured outside elements to keep order in their neighborhoods, as they shoveled driveways and sidewalks.

On Henry Street, in the Byram section of Greenwich, many were taking a resilient attitude about the latest storm.

“It’s beautiful out here,” said Carlos Cepeda, while he shoveled. “There’s more work, but I’m not complaining. It’s actually quite enjoyable.”

Down the street, Takao Yamazaki also assiduously shoveled his driveway. But he was less than thrilled about the conditions.

“I used to be a big fan of snow — I love to ski — but I now I kind of hate it,” he said. “Three times in one week is too much.”

But he was not despairing. The Yankees fan noted that the start of the 2014 Major League Baseball season was less than seven weeks away.

“I’m looking forward to the new season,” he added. “And I’m excited that they signed [pitcher Masahiro] Tanaka. I think it’s going to be a good year for us.”
