Late last week I knew the meteorologists were lying to me. Well, in Colorado that isn’t hard—if his or her mouth is open, they’re probably going to be wrong. But in this case they were being malicious, allowing young children to believe that the weather might be nice for trick-or-treating.
I trick-or-treated for almost 18 years in Colorado—I speak from experience when I say that the weather can be nice on October 30th and November 1st, but any freak weather occurrence in the US will find its way here before trick-or-treating starts. It can even be nice that morning for school costume parades (although that’s unlikely), but mark my words that it will snowing, hailing, very windy and/or raining before the candy gathering starts.
