I’d like to apologize in advance for any typos or formatting errors in today’s column, but it’s next to impossible to type while wearing mittens. To say it’s been cold lately is an understatement. But to say just how cold would be inappropriate for a family newspaper. Let’s just say recent temps have put the “F” in freezing.
How cold has it been in Shelton? So cold that the Tai Chi Guy on the Green has added fire juggling to his repertoire. So cold the frosty relationship between Mayor Lauretti and the Board of Education seems almost friendly. So cold the dogs at the dog park are getting stuck to the trees. So cold the Shelton Police don’t have to yell “freeze” at fleeing suspects. So cold the kids at Sunnyside School are suing for false advertising. So cold the staff at Liquid Lunch have been handing out ice picks instead of spoons. And so cold, Jim the Ice Cream Man has been sleeping in his freezer just to keep warm!
