This year the storm came on Halloween. The weather forecasters were predicting heavy rain and damaging winds, so many communities postponed trick or treating to Friday night. Our community, however, did not. As it turned out there was some rain, but nothing as bad as they had predicted.
As I ran my errands yesterday I took some photos of trees because I thought it might be my last chance before the storm. I also took photos of my nieces getting ready to go out trick or treating.
I took this one on my way to a doctor appointment. I just got out of my car and snapped it with my iPhone.
I took a few from inside my car as I was going to pick up my mom (I was stopped at a red light).
You can tell by these flags that the wind was blowing:
Then we went to my sister's house.
There's that little red car again. You can tell it's been raining, the driveway is getting wet.
This is the view outside the living room window. They have nice trees in their yard, but this photo doesn't really show how bright they are, probably because it's so cloudy out.
This is my nieces' favorite reading chair, with their playhouse in the background. They used that playhouse a lot when they were younger, now not so much.
My youngest niece in that chair, dressed as Little Red Riding Hood.
Her older sister, dressed as Doctor Who No. 11. She's holding a "sonic screwdriver". I guess those are "sonic glasses" she has on, too.
Here they are together, posing for the official parents' Halloween portrait. My phone made it a little blurry, I'm afraid. Here's a better picture of Little Red Riding Hood. It's a little blurry too... oh well.
Finally, here is Sammy the Wheaten Terrier, with her cat ears on.
You can't tell from the photo, but the cat ears were purple sequined.
It was a colorful Halloween.
