January: Storms and Weather

Don't like the weather in Connecticut? Wait five minutes, so goes the cliché. But how true - from hurricanes to tornadoes to blizzards to freak autumn snowstorms, weather events have long been what we think about, worry about and talk about the rest of the year. We'll recall the Hurricane of '38, the flood of '55, the blizzard of '13 and ask the question -- is it really getting worse or are we just paying closer attention?
