The weather outside is frightful...

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...! Wait.. that's a different holiday, but it is looking very gloomy out this Halloween. There's a storm moving in from the west, rain with gusty winds and some thunderstorms are in the forecast for Montgomery and Howard Counties

My child's school canceled their annual Halloween Parade... a very unhappy Hermione Granger left my house this morning. But there's hope that Halloween 2019 won't just be gloomy. We'll be having some friends over, and it looks like we may just get a break from the rain long enough to head out for some trick-or-treating.

Haunted house signIf you are partaking in the festivities tonight, it can't hurt to check whether or not there are rules in place in your community - especially if you live in a condo, or one with an active HOA. Generally, the porch light indicates whether or not a house is welcoming trick-or-treaters: ON for yes and OFF for no.

If you are planning on handing out candy, then check your front yard, porch, stoop etc. for trip hazards, and make sure that there's enough light. Yes, I know... it's not as much fun as scaring visitors, but as a home owner you could be held liable should someone get injured on your property. Now that's a scary thought! 


Have a happy [and safe, and dry] Halloween!

Andrea, the cold front just swooped through west Tennessee and it is supposed to drop into the upper 20's tonight.

Mike Frazier ... brrr 20s tonight? Just the thought is making me shiver! We'll feel the cool-down starting tomorrow as well.. today it's still forecasted to be in the 70s. IF only the storms could wait until after trick-or-treating!

We're expecting severe thunderstorms at prime time for treat or treaters starting around six o'clock. Might be passing out candy tomorrow night instead.

A really good and informative post, my friend. I think about that often with all of the snow we've had so far this season . . . so much slippery ice I'd be afraid to get the little ones out in it. Stay safe!

We lucked out! Things remained pretty calm for most of the afternoon/early evening. The downpour started after all the littles were safely back home - including my not-so-little-anymore-kiddos plus friends. 

We had a very happy Halloween - I hope you all did, too!
