So Spooky! Can Central New Yorkers Expect Snow This Halloween?
It's not something out of the ordinary for us here in Central New York. It's a harsh reality that sometimes, depending on Mother Nature and her feelings, we see snow on Halloween.
I remember growing up and always wanting to get *insert costume here that wasn't necessarily appropriate weather wise for living where we do* and my mom was okay with that, but I always had to wear layers and a GIANT winter coat either over top or underneath. I remember one winter as a teenager, and I believe it was 2011, when I went out trick-or-treating for the local food pantry accepting non-perishables, and my fingers felt like they were going to fall off because a) it was cold and b) snowing.
So maybe you're trying to plan ahead for this year. You want to make sure whatever costume your getting the for the kiddo is weather appropriate. What are we supposed to expect weather wise this Halloween?
