Happy Halloween Everybody!
The kids have been so excited and the waiting has been long.
It's the same thing every year, you think you've got it down.
You watch scary movies.
And you go from store to store to find the perfect(?)
Halloween costumes and scary masks.
You load up on Halloween candy to make sure yo don't run out.
You make scary treats, mostly sweet.
You decorate the house, inside and out with all that scary stuff.
That's what you do.
And we had done all that.
We were sooooo ready.
And then...(the sound of a record being scratched)
A major snow storm (IN OCTOBER!!!).
The storm brought down lots of trees and power lines in our little town.
And most other areas in New England too, for that matter.
I heard reports of snow totals up to 32 inches (not here).
They cancelled school today, and tomorrow too.
It felt more like Merry Christmas than Happy Halloween with all the snow.
Then today, on Halloween,
we get a phone call from the town saying that Halloween is cancelled.
You said what???
You cancelled Halloween?
You can do that?
Not me, not us.
Our street never lost power.
The boys and I went "trick or treating" anyways
and did end up having ourselves a very Happy Halloween.
