Ok, folks, see the railroad track behind me? As soon as the train comes, we all get on and get out of Connecticut as fast as we can. The state is officially closed for business. Any questions?

Here's where all the losers come out of the woodwork, especially the ones from across the track. Certainly there is cause for concern but, try not to hype up the FrankenStorm crap just because it's close to Halloween.
