The fate of Halloween 2012 hangs in the balance. As with most haunters up and down the eastern seaboard this weekend, I've been watching the weather as closely as is humanely possible (as much as I can without getting horribly depressed) taking in every bit of info on the impending Frankenstorm Sandy. It is what it is. I've laid down the paint brushes and the duct tape on last minute projects, because if I can count on anything, it's that I'll get a clear Halloween day if I'm not prepared come Wednesday. It's a risky move. Let's hope it works.
