We had 32 trick-or-treaters this evening. We've never been below forty before, and are usually in the low fifties. However, this is one of the coldest Halloween on record, it's just 2C right now, so I can understand that parents don't want to be out with their kids too long.
But tomorrow morning I start my paper route! 32 customers (including myself); since they're rather scattered around a few blocks, it will take about an hour. Have to have them done by 7 a.m. I'm not sure what time they get delivered to me, but I'll be up by 4:30 - so I guess I'd better be off to bed! (approaching 8:30 p.m. local time right now).
Thanks, and I did have fun!
Don't know what time my papers got delivered to my house, but they were there when I looked out at 4:45 a.m. It took a few extra minutes to go over things to figure out just how I would handle some things, so doing that, and after my morning prayers, it was a few minutes before six that I left the house. It took a bit longer today than it will in the future because I had to be referring to my list of customers, checking my notes, and searching for mail boxes or other delivery locations, but I walked back into my own house about 6:45. Once I get the route learned, it shouldn't take much more than a half hour to do. Of course, by then walking will be more difficult in the snow.
They're predicting a winter with relatively mild temperatures, but lots of snow - only to be expected. If Lake Erie doesn't freeze over, there's always more snow. We get the effect of SW winds coming off Lake Erie, but not nearly what they get in Buffalo, NY, only a half hour away!
