So the big question is: is Halloween cancelled?

Officially? No.

Will it rain at your house during the prime candy-gathering house? Depends on where you live.

I wish it was an easier answer, but this rain will be in transit all day tomorrow. Here's the skinny:

I've put two images below. The top forecasted rain image is for roughly 4-5 pm; the second is for roughly 6-7 pm.

Rain and storms begin early, early and continue throughout the day. It will be breezy, and we ARE under a "Slight Risk" for tomorrow (which means the atmosphere will have enough instability and energy to give us more organized storms).

So: CAN YOU GO TRICK OR TREATING?

First, let me say this.

Kids just want to have fun. And eat candy. So mom's and dad's: even if they can't hit all the houses (which is a possibility for some neighborhoods)....you can salvage it for them!

Go ahead with your dress up plans! Have fun getting them into (or better yet: MAKING YOUR OWN) costume! Watch one of the "Halloween" cartoon specials that will surely be on TV somewhere (Charlie Brown, anyone?). Then let them have some (I SAID SOME, PEOPLE....TOMORROW IS A SCHOOL DAY) candy!

(Now, this may seem like a bad parenting idea, but consider this: whatever those little metabolically-enhanced machines DON'T eat is going straight to YOUR gut when you inevitably make that 4th or 5th guilty pass)

YOU CAN STILL HAVE FUN! Play some games....dress up with your kids...make some popcorn! Quality time with your kids is priceless and amazing and may be one of the best things you do all week.

Want a valuable and unexpected life lesson?

Look at every negative and try to figure out SOME way to get something positive out of it!
