Maybe 40 kids tonight. But, the weather is crappy. Cold, wind, and rain turning to snow...

My town postponed until tomorrow due to heavy rain and gusty winds. Town officials were afraid that with leaves still on many trees, the high winds could reek havoc with power lines, etc. Well, the rain was only an annoying mist, and the winds were calm until about a half hour ago.
We turned on all the decorations and lights to signify that we are here still handing out candy to those defying the odds.
Had 5 groups of kids.

Just had a heckuva a storm come through in NC. Wind hit about 35 mph, some lightning and heavy rain. Now the cold front is moving in. We hit 80 degrees today suppose to be 38 in the morning.

Beautiful night, mid-70s, nice breeze so expected a better turnout. We have fun decorating the house but bought way too much candy, maybe 20 kids so far.

Oh even though we have some lighted Halloween decorations out for the second year we haven't had Trick or Treater in over 20 years.

It was a lousy trick-or-treating night. A big storm roll through here with tornado warnings. Right in the middle of prime time trick or treating. Good thing here is SC there is a pre Halloween and a pre pre Halloween night. So the kids got two nights of treats.

Most likely a tornado watch not a warning. We had a watch until 11 pm but it's been canceled. We never have trickers or treaters but we bought candy anyway.

Sorry I'm a weather watcher and weather nerd.

About 30 kids. Temperatures dropped from 65 to 40. Winds gusting to 40mph. Little kids stopped coming at 7, and only the hard core candy hunting middle school boys came around. Everyone got lots.

Best costume was three preteen girls dressed up as a box of “Nerds” candy. They got lots of candy for all their hard work.

It was a snowy Halloween here! I woke up this morning with a couple of inches of the white stuff on the ground, then, another inch during the day, topping off with three more inches this evening. Cold, windy, and more snow I could ever remember for Halloween!

We had 35 kids visit, about half of the normal numbers we get. we give the big candy bars, so, more for us! devil smiley

Donate that leftover Halloween candy to a good cause.

All of my lights are out and the kids keep coming. I'm not able to hand out candy this year. I'll make it up to them next year.

About 50 kids on a nice crisp night (31°) with little wind. The snow is just moving in and it will be very light.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Early on, the largest family I have ever seen practically wiped us out in one fell swoop. We had to turn off the lights before 8pm.

We’ve had declining numbers for years and tonight was no exception. We might have had 20 kids.

Four, none that I would call little. Two high schoolers and two middle schoolers. The weather was fine.

We left the house to party with friends and their kids, as we do every year. Good solid group.

Got home and saw we left our porch light ON. facepalm

Dog must have been going nuts -- and we dissapointed a bunch of trick or treaters. Prob had tons of parents saying "what kind of idiot leaves their light on but isnt home!!" =(

We had about 80 kids come by last night. We live a few hundred yards from a church that had about 300 or so kids at an outdoor party. A lot of families park along our street and trick or treat their way down the street, where they can catch a short trail to the church parking lot.

We had bought much more candy, as estimates were that up to 1000 kids might be around at the party. Temps at 28° moderated attendance. The leftovers will be distributed through the ski season to cold lift operators.
