How's your trick or treater count going?

It's 8:22PM here and I've had exactly three trick or treaters.

It is 530 here, not a single one yet. I have lived here (in a nice neighborhood) for over 3 years, only one trick or treater ever. Maybe it is the beware of dog signs (been robbed a couple times[they target nice neighborhoods]) and the fact that my dogs bark at any tiny noise outside the house...

My dog is very disappointed. This is his favorite day of the year. He loves the attention from the kids.

0. We used to have kids in the area, but now it's just a few old people.

Our area has very few young people, and the school is facing serious declining enrollment. We have two school systems in our entire county, and don't have enough kids to have both. We'll be consolidating over the next few years, I'm sure, as the population continues to decrease.

Nothing at home so far according to SWMBO. We usually get a handful of them, usually kids from the other apartments and nearby neighborhood. Kids know that apartment complexes are good to hit. Lots of doors, very little walking between them.

It was pretty low in Port Huron this year, we had some in daylight while we were still plugging stuff in and getting into costume. Then it would just be little trickles with a few small rushes. But it looked like my friend's house was the only one on the street, or at least the block. But we have "fans" who love to see what we do every year. We pulled the plug at 8pm after there was noone for 20 minutes, then when we were pulling the thievable stuff off the lawn, another small rush happened. But no like past years. I thought with it being saturday it would be huge. I would say maybe 50 where we'd usually have 200 or so...it might have even been 30 for all I know. It was really hard to count.

The sad part of all of it is my friend's granson who is 10 who usually would rather stay with is and operate the electeric chair and all the other props and dresses as my "igor" (I'm a mad scientist and his grand folks are Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein) got rushed to the hospital at noon today.......and got diagnosed with the swine flu... He's been excited for the whole month we've been setting everything up, to crash and burn and have to stay home tonight. It was kinda a downer. He really got into the igor thing....he could snivel and say "master" like someone out of a 40's Hammer flick.
