Shadow Shot Sunday is back at an odd time - what is it with weather systems and Halloween? Usually the end of October is cooler but not full of weather phenomenon it seems. Last year, it was the Saturday before Halloween (29 Oct 2011) and just before the spooky holiday, a coastal storm left lots of snow in southern Connecticut.
This year, megastorm Sandy is churning up the Atlantic coast about to hit the area Sunday (28 Oct) - I hope our power stays on with the massive winds and rain forecast, too warm for snow this year, the only plus I see to a hurricane/cyclone in 2012.
But perhaps it is the time for weird things to happen...the Perfect Storm in 1991 also started on...28 October! Spooky coincidences or worse - who knows? Anyway, snowy ground does make for nice shadows. Trick or treat I guess...
