Halloween

This year, thanks to Superstorm Sandy, Halloween festivities were rescheduled in my neighborhood. As it turned out, many adults celebrated in costume the weekend before the storm so this year we get to enjoy TWO Halloweens in Baltimore.

A few years ago, I posted other fun old cartoons that make me happy and remind me of Halloween. You can check them out here.

How about you, readers? Did you dress up for Halloween, carve pumpkins or take a little one trick-or-treating?

Schysst!

By now, you’ve probably already heard about the massive storm, Hurricane Sandy, also dubbed Frankenstorm winding its way along the Atlantic coast at the moment.

For most of the day my neighborhood, usually a bustling mix of residences and local businesses, has been eerily empty. The rain has been falling steadily for a few hours now and the world outside my window remains ominous. I’ve seen, sailed and driven through plenty of bad storms, but the silent stillness is always the creepiest.

If you’re in Sandy’s path, readers, stay dry and stay safe.
