Weather forecasters were predicting Superstorm (formerly known as ‘Hurricane’) Sandy to be the mother of all tropical storms.
While that certainly was true for the eastern half of Pennsylvania, as well as New Jersey and New York, the Pittsburgh area was relatively unscathed—albeit wet and windy
Out of concern for residents’ safety, many communities in the area, including Cranberry, Seven Fields and Zelienople, on Monday postponed the trick or treat schedule from Wednesday, Oct. 31 to 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3. Seneca Valley also was among the school districts to cancel school Tuesday and issue a two-hour delay for Wednesday.
Now that it appears the worst of the storm is over in this area, would you favor the municipalities changing trick or treat back to the original date?
Before you answer, here’s a look at the forecast for the next few days courtesy of the National Weather Service.
