This picture that Adam Hunger took tells the story of what many east coasters are calling the “Nightmare Before Halloween.”
The Biggest October snow storm in decades (near Albany, NY, it was the biggest in a century!) gave New York City’s Central Park the most October snow it has ever seen. And some parts of the northeast received 20″ of heavy, wet snow.
So when the storm was gone – more than 1.7million people were in the dark. I bet some of them lit up their jack o’ lanterns just to see what they were doing after dark!
So, many kids in the northeast will have to traipse through the snow to get candy. I bet it’s a Halloween they’ll always remember.
Kind of like Halloween 1994 in Portland. We had 2.44″ of rain (Jeff Gianola says it was like a ‘hurricane’ when he was trick-or-treating with the kids) and then cold air moved in, dropping the snow level down to the foothills of the Cascades. Crazy.
This year our kids in the northwest will be on easy street. Any showers still kicking around at the end of the day will vanish with the sun. Have a safe and fun night!
