    And a bad day gets worse. First, Em abandons me and now
    the Haunted Woods cancels for tonight.

    Waiting untill 7:00 to cancel officially but it's raining cats and dogs
    in Spookland. Bummed, but the weather can't be helped. Better to
    cancel than chance someone having an accident.

    Hard to hayride in the rain, and while some props can get wet others
    are a bit to high dollar to allow that. So maybe tomorrow night before
    we wrap it up for the year. (Never on Sunday, and many have real jobs
    preventing a Monday haunting.)

    But it has been fun. Memorable for some.

    One young teen, after being scared, ran off into the woods only to run
    head first into a tree. Trying to run through strange woods in the dark
    in generally not the smartest thing.

    A lot of people have had to be helped out, under lights. A few backed up
    after buying tickets only to see other people coming out. Running, screaming.
    Most seem to have a good time.

    After they calmed down.

    But we were missing someone in our group this haunting. Our photo/video man
    and his family had to bow out for medical reasons. I'm not going to say what, but
    that they have a very sick little girl who's been in the hospital for a month now.

    6:40...another corn field just called. They've canceled also. So I guess we'll cancel
    also now.

    Sorry about the cancellation and hope the weather clears by tomorrow. It's heading this way in the form of SNOW! 3 to 9" depending upon who is doing the prediction. Wet snow on leaf covered tree limbs = downed power lines. I do hope this misses Sourland. [​IMG]

    All isn't lost.

    Out theater group is still having their haunted BUILDING tonight.
    So I'll pop down there. It's in a barn.

    We use to be in a building next to the fire department, but the fire
    marshall shut us down. Us, and most of the other groups around.
    I mean, we ARE the fire deparment and the trucks were right next
    door. But the building we were in was not up to code.

    So it goes.

    Everything has goverment rules.
