It's been a hard hard week (or so) but Halloween is still happening at Olde Oaks!

Wow I know people east of me have been having all kinds of bad weather and I feel bad for all those who have been setting up early and been affected. Man that looked like a really tall tree. Did it crush any of your halloween display? Looks like some may have been knocked over but hopefully otherwise intact and useable. Nice cemetary set up BTW and I love the look of your neighborhood, nice family houses and mature trees.

Stay calm and carry on with Halloween is the motto.

Very sorry some of your stuff was damaged. I've been working on props so I only have a handful of tombstones out and I'm a bit grateful as the wind and rain has made a rather dramatic entrance lately.

Right up 35 from you in Keller. Wind two nights ago tore down half of my backyard fence.

Hope Herman jr is there when you get home! I'm about an hour west of you and we've had gale force winds all day long. So far, my hanging ghost (cheesecloth over chicken wire frame) got caught in the tree branches and ripped up pretty good. I got him inside before he blew away so I can fix him when the wind dies down. I've got one tombstone (a tall one) leaning almost to the ground but it's still staying put. I'm just glad I didn't put out my stirring witch or reaper yet. No way they would have survived this.

My yard is very sheltered so I think he will be OK . The wind storm ripping up our neighborhood was unlike anything we have seen or our neighbors remember and being a typical Texan I was at the storm door watching it all ! https://flic.kr/p/pxnfA3 Warning I do say a single curse word at the end of the video. the trees whipping around are mostly Red oak and White oak Mature adult trees. the one that falls is (was) about 12 inch diameter white oak.
