    I know the feeling. In 2014 we put the house on the market right in the middle of the season. This meant I could not decorate for the holiday. (the realtor said something about how dead things on the lawn might scare off buyers.) Since the house has not yet sold I am still on hold with new projects waiting to move.

    For simplicity sake I might suggest a roller coaster type set up. Just a short run up then a fairly gentle slope back to the start. This would minimize the size of the drive unit you would need to build.

    I had a funny situation two years ago. I had the full haunt set up complete with lightning and fog and one little boy was standing in the street disagreeing with his mother. He said they should not go to that house because it did not have a jack-0-latern out front. The rule was if the house did not have a jack-0-latern you were not supposed to trick or treat there. His mother assured him that in this case she thought it was alright. I added a jack-0-latern the next year just to be safe.

    I am not sure this is my favorite prop but it is a nice picture.

    We are in the process of moving so I did not set up the haunt this year. Today for the first time I was actually happy about that. Wind NNW at 29 mph gusting to 40 mph

    I had a fog chiller all ready to go last year but must have kinked the hose when I added the ice so it would not work. I simply took off the chiller and the Froggy's Freezin' Fog Juice settled just fine with no chiller at all. The conditions were approximately what you described.

    cmerli replied to a thread Fog: First time fogger in Halloween Props
    The main difference between the wattage on foggers is the amount of time they run between having to reheat. Typically the 400 watt units run about 1 minute before they need reheat.
