Storm’s a comin’. This will be a good weekend for inside activities. Take the kids to the library this afternoon – they can learn all about sound, courtesy of the Connecticut Science Center. We’ve been looking forward to town historian Jane Bouley’s new book about Branford’s street names. If you look at old maps of Branford you’ll see many of today’s street names.
