My wife and I found ourselves in Milford, CT just after noon on Saturday. I’ll get into why in a minute. But, we both saw several jets flying in the air above us, leaving interesting looking contrails. The contrails spelled out ‘HOT SUMMER’. I found this kinda odd. I mean, I know it’s been a hot summer up here and everything, but it’s been in the 70s for the past few days. At the time the picture was taken, it couldn’t have been any warmer than 73 degrees. Oh the irony.

The other issue is why were several jets flying over Milford, CT leaving contrails that spelled out anything at all? I wonder what the point of that was. The whole thing just strikes me as very strange.

Anyways, the only reason we were there was because we had gotten up to make a noon appointment and run some errands. Well, on the way to our appointment in Milford, while driving north on the Merritt, we got into a car accident. Yep, some guy in a pick-up truck rear-ended us. And this is so typical of Connecticut drivers. Everyone in front of me was slamming on their breaks and riding each others buts. I wasn’t, so I avoided hitting the guy in front of me. Too bad the guy behind me wasn’t paying more attention. Luckily, the damage to the rear of my car appears mostly cosmetic. Anyways, that was fun. Good times.
