When Weather RUINED Halloween

Halloween is a time to dress up and get as much candy as you can.

But Mother Nature sometimes dresses up as terrifying weather events and canceling Halloween!

Weather can be scary. And it’s even scarier on Halloween.

I’m meteorologist Jason Meyers.

And here are five frightful Halloween storms.

The 1991 Halloween Blizzard dropped feet of snow across portions of Minnesota, beginning on Halloween.

Snow in October is pretty rare for the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but since those northerners are no strangers to snow, kids just layered up and still trick-or-treated.

The same year on the East Coast, there was the The Perfect Storm – yeah, the one where they made a movie with George Clooney.

The nor’easter merged with remnants of Hurricane Grace and caused 13 deaths and $200 million in damages.

The Halloween Solar Storm were some of the most powerful solar storms ever recorded. They caused aircrafts to be rerouted, disrupted satellites, and a power outage in Sweden for an hour.

The resulting Northern lights were reported to be seen as far south as Florida!

Snowtober – also known as the 2011 Nor’easter – dropped record breaking snowfall from West Virginia to Maine.

All the leaves were still on the trees, and that, plus the weight of the snow caused trees to break and fall – sometimes on power lines.

People were left without electricity, and trick-or-treaters had to wait a few extra days.

The severe weather outbreak of 2013 did a number on many communities from Missouri to Pennsylvania.

Thunderstorms causing wind damage and spawning tornadoes forced a lot of kids to move trick or treating plans to the next day.

The moral of this Halloween tale? Don’t mess with Mother Nature! She wears a lot of costumes, and most of them are terrifying.

Rainbow Potato says:

I was in #5. We went to my mom’s old neighborhood because it was raining really hard in my neighborhood. Everyone gave out handfuls of candy because barely anyone was trick or treating. It ended up being one of my favorite Halloweens, the worst part was my costume getting wet.

ComradeAlpha says:

They need to move Halloween to a better date and it must be a weekend so the kids would not miss some hours of Halloween on a school day

Andrew Guttman says:

Probably in 2012.Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast on October 29 as a Category 1 hurricane in southern New Jersey and wind kicked up to 80 miles an hour or 128 kilometers per hour.The storm did not stop bothering us until 4:30 am but rain pounded until 6 am.We had a horrible Halloween.For the final tally in America the storm did $70 billion,about the cost of the lower end cost of Harvey in 2017.Or about 7 Hurricane Hugo’s,the horrific hurricane in 1989 or or about 2 and a quarter Hurricane Wilma’s

Gordon Wiessner says:

Like your posts because the younger generation thinks its caused by governments, conspiracies, and other garbage. Old Mother Nature has been reeking havoc way before man and will continue to do so. Remember to include these older storms which proves this. Good work. Do a story about the Christmas tree ship.

Andrew Guttman says:

So on October 29,2012 my Halloween got pushed back when this Category 1 storm hit
