Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
My town was fortunate. What my town endured was just another storm, although longer and heavier than usual. Little damage.

Other places in eastern Massachusetts,
and around New England in general,
were very hard hit indeed.
Some areas are still without power / heat / and so on.

Tonight is official Halloween;
but in some cities and towns, everything is so badly upset
that the children's trick-or-treat night
has been postponed for several days
while the local authorities and the citizens
try to get a little closer returned to normal.

But here, the weather is ideal:
no rain whatever,
the day was sunny,
and the night is cool but not frigid.
No wind to speak of.

So there are small flocks and troops of people,
some in costume, some are adult chaperones in street clothes,
trudging along the residential-street sidewalks,
making spectacles of themselves,
and doing the rounds of homes to collect sweets.

I haven't seen any glow-in-the-dark costumes yet as I drive by.
There was one spectacular carnivorous Jurassic-Park style dinosaur,
with this humungous papier-mache head that was
sitting ON TOP of the head of the person in the outfit.
Whoever was in there, was looking out through the upper chest.
Big ole tail dragging on the ground too.

Some small children as superheroes with shiny capes that they swish about.

Not a few living-dead zombie types.
