    3 freakin' kids.

    I live in DOVER. These people that live up here are LOW INCOME and have SEVERAL KIDS more than the national average.

    3 kids total so far.

    How in the hell does the math work on that? They must drive out to one of the more affluent neighborhoods......

    Maybe you should move your white van with the "Free Candy" sign on it into the alley for the night. :D

    What was the temp up there? We were warmer than expected tonight here but it did cool off pretty good once the sun went down.

    Was about -10ish and pretty foggy, so it did feel a little cooler.

    8:00 and the lights go out for us, had a pretty good turnout this year.

    Everyone must be pretty cheap in my area as I was getting rave reviews on my handful of candy for everyone, I actually had one parent try to cut me off. I told her, "that's how much I give out". :D

    Wow, this gets a big WTF....

    I just had 4 kids....err....I mean, 2 teenagers and a male/female clearly into AT LEAST their 30's show up.

    The guy was dressed in his construction coveralls and the female wasn't dressed up at all.

    How bad does your life have to suck to trick-or-treat when you're into your 30's?

    We're in one of the more affluent neighbourhoods in Edmonton, and we've had 23 kids so far tonight. Our usual range is 45-65 kids.

    But it's -8 (-15 with wind chill) with snow pellets mixed with falling flakes, so I'm not surprised with the paltry turnout.

    But at least all of our callers have been kids...;)

    We had 12 this year. Man, not like when I was growing up. There were hundreds of us on the streets in the neighbourhood where I lived in Winnipeg on the streets. And our parents never worried about some pervert grabbing us when we were trick or treating. Times have changed, unfortunately.
