Connecticut meteorologists are all hyped up about this weekend's forecast. Accuweather's forecast headline reads, "Nor'easter to Brew Off East Coast, Wallop Region With Rain and Wind." The Accuweather meteorologist actually had a s**it-eating grin on his face.

According to WFSB 3 TV meteorologists since June 1st, 15 out of 20 weekends have had some type of rain event and this upcoming weekend (10/20-10/22) is shaping up to be no different, except we may be the receiving end of soaking rain and strong winds. It all comes down to which part of Connecticut you live. Right now it appears New York City and southern New England will experience the heaviest rains.

If you lived in Connecticut or anywhere in New England in 1978, no doubt you'll remember where you were and what you were doing during the Blizzard of '78.
