Here in New Jersey, we experienced the crazy October snowstorm that hit the Northeast on Saturday. "Snowtober" is the official term I have heard for the storm. It snowed all day Saturday. A thick, wet, fluffy kind of snow that did a number on the old trees in our town. Still full of leaves, the added weight of this unusually wet snow was too much for many of the trees and big branches have come down on houses, yards and power lines. It felt like a February storm hit the area in terms of the damage. And then Sunday, the sun came out and it was Fall again. So the question is, when school is closed on Halloween due to a snow day, how do you convince your kids that noon is too early to start trick or treating?
