Boo.... Drip.... Drip...

Oh dear, it's looking like it might be a wet one for the kiddies this evening.

I remember a few Halloweens in my day wearing garbage bags over the costume.  And yet others wearing layers of clothes because it was so cold!

But it's always a little disappointing to think of the kids having to take umbrellas and wear boots.  Hopefully it'll clear up later, but right now?  It's raining hard.

Halloween here, in North America anyway, is the most Burning Man like experience you can have outside of an actual Burning Man experience... people have spent a lot of money to give things away and have created fun "art installations" for people to enjoy and people are wearing whatever makes them happy, often costumes that they've gone to a great deal of trouble to make.

It is pretty awesome when you think about it that way, eh?

(P.S.  Cell phone photo from yesterday.  My favourite part of it is "Halloween dress code"  Assuming it's open for viewing and candy gathering tonight too!)

It was an usually warm and dry evening in these parts. I love seeing the places decorated and the costumes on the kiddies. Sadly, living in the last house on a dead end street (which is decent hill) in the country means we only had 3 kiddles.

It stayed dry for the kids here, which was good. My brother reported not a lot of trick or treaters at their place either though.
