    Cold weather continues to cause trouble for fire crews across the state.

    Shortly after midnight on Sunday firefighters in Stamford responded to a fire at a two-story home on Old Orchard Lane. Crews brought in tankers because the area did not have hydrants, and struggled with freezing temperatures and icy conditions as they battled the blaze.

    Multiple departments responded, totaling about 40 firefighters, and it took about 90 minutes to get the fire under control, fire officials said.

    The residents were home at the time but got out safely before crews arrived. No injuries were reported.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.

    No one will be adversely affected by the Republicans' new health care bill once its enacted, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, NBC News reported.

    "I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through," Price insisted when pressed by NBC's Chuck Todd during Sunday's "Meet The Press." "They'll have choices that they can select the kind of coverage that they want for themselves and for their family, not the government forces them to buy."

    "There's cost that needs to come down, and we believe we're going to be able to do that through this system," he added. "There's coverage that's going to go up."

    Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week to play President Donald Trump (though he may not continue to do so for much longer, according to his recent announcement.) And as usual, the show opened with a skewering of the commander in chief's latest governing hiccups and persistent personality quirks.

    But this week's most pointed political commentary went beyond the cold open, which featured Trump (Baldwin) reluctantly leading a war against extraterrestrial invaders.

    [[415970183, C]]

    Rather, it was the short, pre-taped commercial spoof for a fictional women's fragrance hocked by first daughter Ivanka Trump (played by fifth-time "SNL" host Scarlett Johansson).

    "All eyes are on her. She's...Ivanka," a voiceover purrs over b-roll of the elegantly dressed first daughter sauntering through fancy social environs. "And a woman like her deserves a fragrance all her own. A scent made just for her. Because she's beautiful. She's powerful. She's...Complicit."

    [[415976133, C]]

    Ivanka is a woman who "knows what she wants" and "knows what she's doing," the ad continues.

    "She doesn't crave the spotlight, but, we see her," we hear as Ivanka turns her gaze toward a full-length mirror to apply lipstick. Cut to a view of the mirror, and who is reflected back to the world but the president (Baldwin) himself. Because, can someone in Ivanka's unique position remain publicly reticent without effectively becoming a mouthpiece for her father?

    Earlier this season, "SNL" portrayed Ivanka, along with Melania, top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway and former "Apprentice" star Omarosa, as a somewhat reluctant, or at least self-reflective, participant in the Trump campaign. But this latest sketch appears to send a message that the show won't be letting her off the hook any longer.

    "A feminist. An advocate. A champion for women," we hear as Ivanka tosses her shimmering blond hair. Cut to the group of three confused-looking women standing nearby: "Like, how?"

    "Also," the increasingly critical voiceover continues, "I bet when she watches 'Titanic,' she thinks she's Rose. Sorry girl — you're Billy Zane."

    And of course, Complicit is also available as a cologne "for Jared," Ivanka's husband and top Trump aide Jared Kushner. 

    Later in the episode, "Weekend Update" anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che welcomed fellow cast member Pete Davidson, who recently returned to social media after a hiatus to announce that he is "happy and sober" for the first time in eight years, to give his first impressions of the Trump administration.

    [[415970363, C]]

    The show also welcomed the return of Attorney General Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon, with impressive hair, makeup and wardrobe) after last week's Forrest Gump-inspired cold open featured the former Alabama senator on a bus stop bench, peppering his life musings with confessions that he'd concealed his relationships with Russian officials. In this week's appearance, Sessions and Democratic Sen. (and IRL "SNL" alum) Al Franken (played by Alex Moffat) revisit their exchange that took place during the attorney general's confirmation hearing.

    This past Wednesday was designated by activists as a "Day Without a Woman," a call for women to demonstrate their economic importance by not working for a day. While many women instead wore red to work in solidarity, rather than risk their employment status by not showing up, apparently two of the male "SNL" writers took it upon themselves to give their female coworkers a break and take on writing a "Day Without a Woman" sketch for all the women in the cast.

    The annual New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade will go on as planned Sunday afternoon, even with temperatures expected to be in the 20s and a wind chill making it feel even worse.

    The parade has drawn crowds of as many as 300,000 people in the past. With the cold weather it’s unlikely they’ll be breaking any records Sunday, but that hasn’t stopped spectators from coming out to show their Irish pride.

    Unfortunately the cold did slow down crews preparing for the parade, who were unable to repaint the famous green line that guides marchers because the equipment kept freezing up. The shamrocks were done by hand.

    Workers said the parade has gone on in all weather.

    “The Saint Patrick’s Day parade has been a tradition for many many years and the Irish are a hearty people,” said Donald Iannuzzi, New Haven Parks & Recreation.

    “We’ve done snow, rain, everything. So, the cold is not going to stop us,” explained Stanley Johnson, also of New Haven Parks & Recreation.

    The parade begins at 1:30 p.m. from Chapel Street at Sherman Avenue, winding around toward the New Haven Green. It ends on Grove and Orange Streets.

    New Haven police urged the thousands of people descending on downtown to bundle up from head to toe earlier in the week.

    “You kind of get wrapped up in the music and the marchers and the floats and you may not realize that your toes are starting to turn to icicles,” NHPD spokesperson David Hartman said.

    Marchers and spectators should watch out for black ice, Hartman added.

    “There are certainly going to be patches of it,” he said. “We can’t dry the streets.”

    Police have a warning for people planning to celebrate with a couple Guinness pints or shots of Jameson.

    “You’re as, if not more, vulnerable because of thinner blood to be susceptible to serious cold temperatures,” Hartman said.

    Police suggest putting on boots and a warm pair of socks or two if you plan to watch the parade.

    In addition to 180 New Haven Police officers, there will be several AMR ambulances along the parade route.

    Donald Trump Jr. said he has had virtually no contact with his father since the real estate tycoon and reality star became president and ceded control of his business empire to his oldest sons, NBC News reported.

    "I basically have zero contact with him at this point," the younger Trump said in a speech at a GOP fundraiser in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday.

    In January, Donald Trump Jr. and his younger brother Eric took the reins at the family's eponymous businesses, after their father resigned his position while maintaining his financial interest. At the time, government ethics officials said the president's move did not go far enough to address concerns about conflicts of interest.

    The Connecticut Mattress store at the Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk in South Windsor was damaged when someone accidentally drove into the building, according to the business.

    Store employees told NBC Connecticut nobody was seriously hurt when a vehicle crashed into the building around 10:30 a.m., but one person who was standing near where it happened was going to the hospital for evaluation.

    The store sustained significant damage, employees said. A hole in the wall was visible from the sidewalk.

    Police are investigating exactly what caused the crash.

    April the giraffe and her long-necked lover, Oliver, shared a touching moment this morning as the two longingly gazed at one another from above their pens.

    The mom-to-be and fan favorite of millions around the globe is "in great condition" despite the blistering cold spell gripping the tri-state this weekend, the upstate New York zoo live-streaming her pen said.

    A photo posted by the Harpursville Animal Adventure Park shows dark, rough-looking spots, or wax caps, decorating April's under belly. The wax caps seal colostrum in the udder to ensure that there will be enough for the calf's first nursing, according to the zoo.

    "Wax caps are what develops on the teats of the udder to keep colostrum in the udder, to ensure that it is [sic] there for baby's first nursing," the zoo wrote. "Caps are shed just prior or during delivery, or can be removed by the suckle of the baby."

    April's restless calf was at it again early Sunday morning from 3 a.m. to 4 a.m. and again around 7 a.m., her keepers said.

    The hungry giant demands a crunchy carrot before every vet visit as a "toll" to enter her stall for an exam, the zoo said Friday.

    "Appetites have been strong!" The Harpursville Animal Adventure Park posted on Facebook late Thursday. "When our Vet stopped in today...Apil demands a "toll" before entering her stall for an exam!"

    Due to the extreme cold, the giraffes will remain inside, but the zoo encouraged followers to sit tight, stay warm and relax.

    The weather also interrupted the zoo's popular livestream. High winds interrupted the signal, but the zoo started another live video (available below).

    We may not have to wait much longer for the birth of her calf. The zoo said Friday morning that April's handlers were "elated to have captured the calf kicking out!" 

    "April continues to have us all on edge; when will it be - we just don't know!" the zoo wrote. "All physical signs show we are ready for 'launch sequence.' So, we continue to patiently wait."

    Keepers felt baby kicks, and viewers noticed an increase in tail-raising due to pressure from an unknown source. The long-necked beauty gave followers a special 18-inch message Friday — she playfully stuck out her purple and blue tongue for the camera.

    Tens of millions of fans across the world have been hooked to the live stream for weeks now as they wait for April to deliver. The mama giraffe “continues to progress,” the zoo said — though a winter storm and more “baby kicks” may make April a bit anxious in the coming days. 

    Watch the live stream below.

    April has had periods of edginess in recent weeks brought on by stretches of cold weather and her active calf, which was busy kicking away Thursday night, the zoo said. The zoo noted viewers may have noticed “increased tail raising” from April, likely due to the pressure of her growing baby.

    Nevertheless, April is in “great physical and mental condition,” and the vets who have been monitoring her say they’re pleased with her progression. 

    April's pregnancy was catapulted into global headlines late last month after YouTube briefly yanked the zoo's stream following complaints by animal activists that it violated the site's policies concerning "nudity and sexual content." Thousands upon thousands of commenters voiced their frustration on Facebook and YouTube, and the stream was restored within an hour or so.

    About 70,000 people were watching the YouTube stream by 8 a.m. Friday as April once again slinked over to her mate Oliver's pen, necking with him coyishly over the top as she swished her tail. 

    Jordan Patch, owner of the Animal Adventure Park, says the natural curiosity surrounding giraffes and their birthing process has been a huge factor in drawing crowds. 

    "I think the fact that she's a giraffe and she's a neat species that people are interested in, that's fostered a lot of the attention," he said. "The fact that you're gonna get to witness the miracle of birth from an animal that you really don't get to see give birth — that's neat."

    He added that April's pregnancy is not just live entertainment, but a teachable moment and source for education.

    Giraffe pregnancies last up to 15 months. Labor lasts anywhere from a few hours to a few days. The calf, which will be the first born at Animal Adventure Park, will be about 150 pounds and 6 feet tall at birth and up and walking in about an hour.

    The zoo said it will hold an online competition to name the baby giraffe once it's born.

    During the campaign, President Donald Trump promised he would take "no salary" if elected — a pledge he reiterated after he won, but the White House is declining to say if the president has donated any of his earnings yet, NBC News reported.

    The Constitution requires that the president receive a salary, and that it not be reduced during his term. Federal law mandates the president receive a $400,000 annual salary, paid out once a month.

    Trump aides have previously said Trump would donate his salary to the Treasury Department or a charity.

    MSNBC requested details and documentation about any salary donations from the White House, the Treasury Department and the Office of Personnel Management, which all declined to say whether Trump has donated any of his salary to date.

    In a country that may be more politically fractured than ever, former Vice President Joe Biden has made it his mission to tackle what he says is "the only bipartisan thing left in America."

    As NBC News reported, Biden spoke Sunday at the South by Southwest conference in Austin about his work with The Cancer Initiative, a program carrying on the work he started at the White House as part of the Cancer Moonshot Task Force.

    The former vice president's passion for the issue is personal. His son Beau Biden, a former attorney general of Delaware, was only 46 when he died of brain cancer in 2015.

    Asked what he thinks of the health care bill designed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Biden's response was brief, but telling.

    "Not a lot," he told NBC News.

    People in the Northeast are facing blizzard conditions and up to 2 feet of snow in a storm that could last from Monday night to Wednesday morning, forecasters said.

    "This one is coming a little late in the season but has a lot of the characteristics of a winter storm, including the cold air and developing nor'easter," said Sherri Pugh, a meteorologist for NBC News.

    As NBC News reported, this could be the heaviest snowfall all season, with Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore all expecting more than 12 inches — higher than previous winter storms in recent months. Washington, D.C., is expected to see 8 to 12 inches, potentially a hard hit to the city's cherry blossom blooms.

    According to The Weather Channel, 36 winter storms since 1869 have produced a foot or more of snow in New York, but only four happened in March — most recently March 3-4, 1960.

    A winter storm is expected to hit the Northeast Monday night and stay through Wednesday morning. Wind gusts are expected to be above 35 mph, and visibility will be less than a quarter-mile because of snowfall and wind.A winter storm is expected to hit the Northeast Monday night and stay through Wednesday morning.

    April the giraffe and her millions of adoring fans are still waiting for her baby calf to be born, and a new photo posted by the upstate New York zoo broadcasting her pregnancy suggests that moment may be fast approaching.

    The Animal Adventure Park posted a photo to its Facebook page Sunday that shows dark, rough-looking spots, or wax caps, decorating April's underbelly. The wax caps seal colostrum in the udder to ensure that there will be enough for the calf's first nursing, according to the zoo.

    Watch the live stream below.

    April was wide awake early Monday morning, the baby bump in her belly clearly visible as she chewed on some food in an otherwise darkened pen. Her mate, Oliver, appeared to be asleep in his adjacent quarters. More than 36,000 people were watching the live stream as the mom-to-be enjoyed her early snack. 

    April is "in great condition" and her appetite is “strong” despite the blistering cold spell gripping the tri-state area, the Harpursville zoo said Friday. The zoo wrote that April has been so ravenous that she’s been demanding a food “toll” from people entering her stall.

    Tens of millions of fans across the world have been hooked to the live stream for weeks now as they wait for April to deliver.

    Several people are displaced ahead of Tuesday's nor'easter after a fire at a condominium complex in Vernon Monday morning.

    Fire crews responded to 85 Old Town Road, the Townhouse III Condos, around 1:45 a.m. No injuries were reported but eight to 10 people are displaced, according to fire officials.

    Buses were brought in as warming centers to keep residents warm while crews worked. The fire was declared under control around 4 a.m.

    Fire departments from Vernon, Tolland, Bolton, South Windsor, Manchester, Crystal Lake, Ellington and Broad Brook all responded to the scene. The Red Cross is assisting the displaced residents.

    Fire officials said sand trucks were called out for icy conditions on Old Town Road caused by the water used to fight the fire.

    Old Town Road remains closed for the fire investigation. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

    The clock is ticking for the Justice Department to turn over any evidence showing Trump Tower was wiretapped during the 2016 presidential race by Monday, following a request from top lawmakers in the House Intelligence Committee.

    Congressional aides told NBC News that the committee sent a letter last week to the acting deputy attorney general. A copy of the letter was also sent to FBI Director James Comey, who has reportedly asked the Justice Department to publicly reject President Donald Trump's claim.

    Last week, Trump took to Twitter to make the explosive accusation against former President Barack Obama but did not provide any proof. Obama and his former director of national intelligence have denied the allegations.

    The committee said it would look into potential surveillance of political parties as part of its broader investigation of Russian election meddling.

    Shelton police have arrested a man who is accused of trying to rob a Subway restaurant and stealing the cash register and liquor from the American Russian Club in December. 

    Police arrested 30-year-old Nicholas Szustecki, of Shelton, Friday and charged him with criminal attempt/robbery in the second degree, third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny. 

    Police said Szustecki was wearing a mask when he tried to rob the Subway restaurant on Howe Avenue on Dec. 23. He implied he had a gun but did not get away with any money, according to police. 

    He is also accused of burglarizing the American Russian Club on Howe Avenue on Christmas. Police said he took the cash register and bottles of liquor. 

    Police previously arrested Szustecki on Dec. 26 in connection with burglaries at Porky’s Café and Steller’s Garage in Shelton and said they connected him to the other cases during that arrest.

    President Donald Trump is expected to host the president of China, Xi Jinping, at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida in April, a senior administration official told NBC News Monday.

    The meeting would come after months of tough talk from Trump on the campaign trail over trade.

    President Xi would be extended the same courtesy as the Japanese prime minister received with a trip to the "Winter White House" in February. Shinzo Abe and his wife spent the weekend with Trump and the first lady in a visit meant to deepen their relationship.

    Final arrangements for the China meeting, first reported by Axios, will be made by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson this week during his trip to Asia, the official said.
