It's gonna be a wet Halloween!

No!  Not that kind of wet!

It's gonna be the kind of wet night that puts you in mind of:

It's gonna be the kind that's perfect for spooking and creeping and being thrilled and/or scared; the kind of night where only the brave walk down dark lanes to the kind of big old Victorian houses that this region is full of.

But NOT a perfect night for trick or treating.  Sandy is only affecting us slightly; we're very fortunate!  Still, we're having heavy rainfall and winds in southern Nova Scotia (and there's thunder rumbling outside); and both are just supposed to get worse as the evening progresses.  So all the wee gobblins and ghosties --- little ones and international ones --- are going to get awfully wet tonight if they even venture out at all.  

I shall be spending my day at work - snug and dry - with my radio blasting and a hot cuppa chai at my side.  And I shall be periodically stopping to pray:

"Please Lord!  Stop the rain so the trick or treaters can come out ..... and I won't be forced to eat any more of those mini bags of chips or fun size Caramilk bars!"

Due to the inclement weather here they rescheduled trick or treat to Saturday afternoon. It won't be the same but still I do have a lot of candy to give out so I am hoping it will be a nice day. Happy Halloween! Stay warm and dry!

The rain has stopped here for now and hopefully for good! We don't get many visitors, just a handful, however, I do have a large supply of mini chip bags to get rid of. There sure isn't much in one of those bags is there? Barely a handful. Diet chips. lol

Oh I do hope you are saved! I was doing so well until "someone" open one of the bags. Now I can't keep my hands out. Stay dry and safe! Happy Halloween!

Beautiful, warm, sunshiney day here - lots of Trick-or-Treaters wandering the streets.

Sadly I ate ALL the tiny caramilk bars and the tiny packages of m&ms and kit kats.. not a single kid this year. it's a tough gig living way out in the boonies.

Oooohhh! I love your volunteer petunia, too!
We did trick or treat the Thursday BEFORE Halloween. That's just how we roll around here. Handed out almost 7, yes 7! bags of candy. The extra 2 bags I pawned off on the Children's Ministry at church, as a desperate measure of self preservation!
