Yup the weather forecast is calling for rain changing to snow on Saturday with a possible 1 - 3 inch accumulation in the NYC metropolitan area. Up north in Sussex County NJ where our friends, Terri and Dan and their doggies Tank and Harley live, they are predicting 4-8 inches of the white stuff! When was the last time it snowed before Halloween. Can't say I recall that happening .....ever! So much for global warming!
It certainly ruins plans we had for Saturday night. We always go into the city the Saturday night before Halloween to take our own spooky ghost tour of historic and infamously haunted sites. We usually end up at some point at McSorley's the oldest bar in the city. Believe me it looks it too! The bartenders are a bunch of characters that dress up for Halloween and serve beer three fisted at a time to tables. The walls are covered with memorbilia from over the years and the foot railing at the bar has Houdini's handcuffs attached to it. Yes the place certainly has a haunted quality about it. Well we may have to hunker down Saturday night and watch the snow fall while watching a scary movie or two instead!
I am sure Ozzie will be surprised by the snow. I anticipate it won't hang around long since Sunday will be sunny and in the 50's but enough for Ozzie to make it yellow in spots! Still working on Ozzie's costume idea for Monday. I like my son's idea of dressing Oz as a gangster and calling him Al Cabone, but I am not that creative and can't sew a stitch so it's not going to happen! Though the visual is amusing!
Well here is hoping you all have better weather than due us here in the northeast this weekend!
