It has been raining here in Cleveland, OH for days non-stop. My coat does not even get the chance to dry before I have to take the dogs out (again), but I am glad that I got a new pair of hot pink rain boots a few weeks ago as I am putting them to good use!
As I am sitting here at the kitchen table today, I am watching our Halloween props get taken down by the strong winds, one by one. I heard a loud “thump” earlier today, and I thought to myself “now what was that“, so I looked outside, and our ghoul is now laying flat on his back in the yard. He had enough of fighting the wind and gave up, and he is just laying there with his hands up in the air. I am only surprised that he is not holding a white flag of surrender!
Our wood tombstones are even swaying back and forth even with the 7″ spikes that we have in the ground to hold them secure, as the ground is so saturated with water and the holes in the ground are huge.
A neighbor of ours just emailed us a notice from our city that Halloween on Wednesday night has been postponed due to the weather conditions of Hurricane Sandy, and will take place on Sunday instead. We figured as much that this would happen, so we are not so surprised at the news. Hopefully by Sunday the rain will have ceased a bit and give the trick-or-treaters a chance to gather some candy from the neighbors.
I will keep a lookout on the graveyard to see what else takes a dive as the day progresses.
