Last night's rescheduled Halloween was a strange thing. The weather was cold with a steady strong wind, with occasional gusts which repeatedly blew out jack o'lanterns and witch jars. And then a light cold rain began to fall around 7pm.
Only 15 trick-or-treaters stopped by.
We had a fire going inside, with food and hot spiced wine. During the night, some neighbors and friends and coworkers showed up and we had some laughs. And all of us were thankful we weren't more affected by the hurricane.
At the end of the night, the neighborhood owl was hooting in the trees down the street. And the cold rain made sure Second Halloween was over. Such a strange year.
Decided not to take video of the Haunt this year. I think I'll cite creative reasons for that. The Witches seemed alive in my still photos. I have a feeling that video would have detracted from that. So I listened to my gut.
Here are some instant photographs Bean snapped during setup...
The tree stump cauldron seemed to be the star of the show. So many people thought it was a real stump and not just cardboard, tape, and mache.
