There are some parts of VA where "house" sounds like "hoos" rather like some of the Maritime provinces pronounce it, i.e, The "ou" pronounced "oo." CT has its pockets of odd pronunciations. Just below Hartford on I84 is New Bri'an (full glottal stop). I grew up in western CT and I've heard the state name pronounced, "Conne'cut." Now I'm living in ME and that's a whole 'nother thing, Deah.
