- - It ain't fair, I tell 'ya; guys like me wait all year in eager anticipation of Halloween, only to have it diminished by a freak pre-Halloween heavy snowstorm in my part of the country.  As if the hovering presence of the Christmas juggernaut wasn't enough! 

Now Halloween is many things, but snow isn't really one of them; snow's a winter backdrop, and is kinda contrary to the spirit of autumn.  Yes, the air should be crisp in fall, but six inches of snow goes way beyond a nip in the air.  There'll be plenty of snow later on, when it's supposed to be here; fall and Halloween really don't need the intrusion!  So where do I go to demand a refund and a full accounting for the Nightmare That Stole Halloween?
