Halloween is approaching and the scary/fun atmosphere is building around town. Everyone I know under the age of twelve can talk of nothing except what costume they will be wearing for trick-or-treating next week.
See the spooky guy in the background? He was blowing westward in the breezy weather we were having on Wednesday night. It's Santa Ana Winds season (my least favorite part of fall). Last year, on December 1, we had a huge windstorm that caused millions of dollars of damage, and power outages, not to mention a lot of jangled nerves in our town and much of the rest of the area.
Hopefully, the Santa Anas that are hanging around this week will try not to scare us too much, and our nerves will be reserved for things that go Boo in the night.
