The storm clouds were brewing but not one drop of water fell on Halloween – even with a 70% chance of rain. We closed up shop at 10pm and at the end of the night 259 trick 'r treaters came by to pick up 4 giant bags of Costco candy. What a great night!
Yesterday was the teardown, and Halloween is now sitting in the garage waiting to be sorted, repaired as necessary, and stored for the long winter (and hot summer). Some consider sights like this as evidence of my being a Halloween hoarder, but in my defense, I always donate quite a few pieces to friends and organizations.
