SNOW!!! WIND!!! RAIN!! SLEET! Ah, it would not be Halloween without it!
Arrrghhhhh! Another one with a front porch! My next house is going to HAVE to have a front porch. For me that is the holy grail, not only for Halloween mind you...for all year use. I been wanting a house with a front porch for a LONG time.Yes it sucks. Looks like rain here for the big night. I'm going to have to totally re-think the placement of everything. Not sure how my motorized props will fair in the rain, I may have to re-locate to the porch.
Sorry about the weather. It does kind of put a damper on things.
I've had the past 2 Halloweens ruined by the weather.
2011 was the Halloween blizzard. Knocked down lots of trees and half the town was without power.
2012 was Hurricane Sandy so the whole yard had to be taken down before it hit and then no power for 3 days. ToT was cancelled by the town.
Hopefully this year it will pass without any major storms although rain is in the forecast.
I have been following your updates here as well as the weather reports too. So I can confirm this is the same I heard. I am hoping it does push out later as well. I am looking to shut my display down about 8:30pm, so I am hoping that the rain will hold out until at least 10:00pm. At that point I would have everything mostly under covers by then. I am putting an 'emergency' plan B into effect though. I do have many plastic bags and a large tarp ready. The tarp is for my singing pumpkin display so if the weather changes for the worse by tomorrow, I have to put the tarp in place.Just heard today that here in MD Halloween is supposed to 70° with rain moving in later at nite. The later the better IMHO.
You are one of the lucky ones. It looks like your storm is passing BEFORE hand. That is always a good thing to get the storm BEHIND you rather than expecting one that is coming. For us we are looking at rain on Nov 1 too, but rain moves in late Halloween night. If the wind shifts a bit faster, then that rain could plant itself right on our faces for Halloween. So it is a roll of the dice.At least the weather for Halloween looks great.
Oct 29 - rain all day
Oct 30 - Nice
Oct 31 - beautiful
Nov 1 - Overcast and rain next three days!
Hope the luck holds out for that!!! Fingers - and toes - crossed!!
