Prospect Hill Reviews

Living in Connecticut, you will experience all types of weather. In the winter it get very cold due to the blizzards. In the spring we get lots of rain. The summers here can be very humid. For the past couple of years we have had plenty of hurricanes between August and September. We have moderate weather in the fall, but you will still see people dressing like it is summertime.

I really do not have an opinion about politics. I rarely discuss the situation.
