This single digit weather is a sure sign man made global warming is occurring in SE CT. I know, I know... Global Warming is an Inconvenient Title for climate change...

Spend tax dollars on an Institute that studies weather. Pure brilliance! Connecticut is one of the most expensive states in which to do business and this governor has done little to fix the underlying problem - waste and corruption. I'd start with UCONN.
