So basically you would have a skip from April 30th to November 1st (seasons matching the corresponding months) would you still live here? You would still have half the months of the year

Absolutely not. Even if it skipped from May 31st to October 1st. Those 4 months in between are precious.

Hell no! The month of May is probably the most beautiful. I prefer it over SoCal weather, to be honest.

What about a 268-day year with just loss of that little bit of time between Memorial Day and Labor Day foregone

IMO May is still a little too mild for me. Overall, I consider it to be on the chilly side. I'm still cooped up inside my apartment with a sweater and heat on.

If you removed those months, you'd basically be living in the high arctic up around resolute from april to november. No thanks.

Except April to November up there they get a period of midnight sunshine in resolute


So in summary:

No farmers markets
No apple picking season
No more open resorts on the Cape
Some museums/tours discontinued
No concerts in Stratford
Trees will be without leaves all year round

You will have snow days
Holiday season winter skiing will be the only remaining surviving hype of the calendar year

In this climate, hypothetically speaking, what would you say would be the % of Connecticut residents who decide to stay put?

Suppose to make up for lost state revenue due to loss of May-Oct months, Connecticut increases state income taxrates to 17% of gross income? With this factored in, what would Connecticut's remaining population be? 500,000 residents?

Which is absolutely horrible. Try sleeping up there in that.

No. As a matter of fact, if we didn't have our families here, we probably wouldn't stay in CT. I still love the NE, but it's just too expensive.
