After midnight on Halloween night, the wind finally subsided. Then the rain began. But by noon yesterday, it was over and was replaced by unseasonably warm sunny weather. Perfect for dis-assembling and packing away the outdoor Halloween display. The graveside mourners looked quite comfortable on their bench in the cemetery and weren't pleased when asked to move on.
By late afternoon, the front yard had returned to its pre-Halloween form. And the occasion was marked with a cup of tea and leftover chocolate bars. Not sure how many. Let's just say, "several".
Today, the focus shifts to the indoor display. Followed once again by the now traditional tea and chocolate bars.
