31 Days of Halloween - Day 31: November 5 is the New October 31 (at least it is here in New Jersey)

"Fear not, children of New Jersey. Chris Christie has got your back."
Here in New Jersey, October 31 was about as far from being the festive night of Halloween as it possibly could be.

And understandably so, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is pretty terrible, and I'm not even in one of the worst hit communities by the shore.

But when two-thirds of your town is without power, and many have substantial property damage, Halloween is really the last thing on your mind even if you've been writing about it for the past 30 days.

The governor has rescheduled Halloween here in New Jersey via Executive Order 105 for Monday, November 5.

I'll be happy to be back then with one final day of Halloween, even if it is five days after the fact.

My kids, of course, will be even happier.

Am so glad you're okay and (relatively) safe & dry. What a thing, eh? And kids, if they've not been too displaced by events, stick to the original game plan: CANDY NOW. Which is both helpful (keeps us from reading and re-reading awful news reports) and annoying: can't you see all this awful news that I have to read???
