This is the first I've even HEARD we're having trick or treating tonight! I've been wondering. Does anybody know, does "after school activities" include the after school YMCA program???

Rain? ha ha, they need to update that forecast! It's snowing like crazy out there.

The YMCA after school program is still on, but they are requesting early pick up if possible.

I hope no one brought their kids out tonight for the postponed trick or treating. I kept mine home safe and warm.
