  1. General Halloween
    I had to pull everything inside yesterday - predictions were for 60mph+ gusts, and I was not going to trust the gravestones and jack-o-lanterns to remain. Left the fence out, as I figured that would not blow away. Ended up with the street section tipping over. No biggie. But the neighborhood...

  4. Halloween Props
    I'm building a trash can trauma prop and want to weather the 31 gallon galvanized steel trash can, add some rust. I read somewhere that there is a youtube video on how to do this using muriatic acid. I can't seem to find that exact video. Anybody have tips on precisely what I need to do? (Do I...

    Here is the video of our Halloween 2018 we had around 700 to 800 kids, the weather was good until Halloween night around 8 pm when it started to rain so found myself putting everything away wet as usual here in the NW
  7. General Halloween
    Due to potential bad weather I decided to put my display in my garage this year. Weather turned out to be nice but I will still do the display in the garage in future years. All animatronics were built by me over the years. I have 9 total. Next year I will work on lighting and maybe some...
  8. General Halloween
    Thy soul shall find itself alone. Mid dark thoughts of the gray tombstone. Not one, of all the crowd, to pry into thine hour of secrecy. The spirits of the dead who stood in life; before thee are again. In death around thee, and their will shall overshadow thee...

  11. General Halloween
    Might be the first Halloween ruined by weather since I've been doing my yard haunt. The worst part is that it's beautiful weather until Halloween, 55 with a 50% chance of rain and gusty winds on Halloween, then back to beautiful weather the rest of the week. ONE day I ask for nice weather...
  12. General Halloween
    This is a really sad post! Due to the extreme wet weather in TX, I have not been able to put up my yard and it is the 26TH!!! :mad::mad::mad: It will be dry for the next few days , so am going to get the yard up over the weekend - HOWEVER there is a chance of Thunder storms on Halloween. How...
  13. General Halloween
    Rain for us...and ONLY on the day of. :rolleyes: Forecast is saying it will take place around sundown(How convenient) But hey, maybe it could change before then...I hope:o
  14. Halloween Props
    I have a few store bought animated props I was looking forward to setting out for my haunt on Halloween. Had a great plan and bought 2 new ones with the said plan in mind. However there is now a 50% chance of rain on Halloween night, and I need to cover at least a couple of them. Will covering...
  15. General Halloween
    It's still 2 weeks out but the forecast for my town is remaining at rain. I sure hope it changes to a decent day and night. I really need the 29th through Nov 1st to cooperate. I can manage with less, but that's ideal. I hope everyone eeks out good weather this year! Good luck!
  16. General Halloween
    The house is mostly ready. My costume isn't and mioght not be but I can live with that. The real issue is I feel so cheated this years by the weather. I feel like I haven't really gotten to enjoy the season this year.
  17. General Halloween
    We always set up our display over Labor Day weekend and it is ready to turn the lights on on Monday night. Well for the first time that I remember the weather has put a huge damper on the set up. It rained the entire weekend and at this point we only have about half of the display up and none...
  18. General Halloween
    Does anyone use a weather site that is somewhat accurate for predicting precipitation/temps on Halloween? My magic ball just doesn’t seem to do it! Unfortunately, mybig props are not water resistant. Am I grasping at straws? There is a reason Missouri is also called the state of Misery!
  19. Halloween Props
    Following from my previous post where unfortunately the weather destroyed the majority of my props, here's the pics we took on set up as promised
  20. General Halloween
    As I look out the den window to the front lawn and driveway, I'm reminded Ma Nature cares not a whit if you've got Halloween props spread out all over the place. The winds are gusting to 60mph (90kph) this afternoon and will continue to wreak their unyielding havoc well into tomorrow. In the...
