Connecticut had hottest summer on record, climate center says

Amston, Ct. - 05/26/2020 - Saying, "Pools are better than Disneyland," 10-year-old Aiyana Patrizz jumps over a pool float before jumping into he water at Juliano's Pools. Patrizz's father, Scott George, is the general manager at Juliano's Pools and brought his daughter to work where she was able to swim in the day's 80-degree temperatures. George said that with Covid-19 keeping more people at home and not spending money on summer vacations, Juliano's has had an unprecedented number of calls from people staying home and looking to build what he calls "a backyard oasis."
